Last Market of the Season – Cape North Farmers Market


The CWL will serve brunch in the cafe while Hector and Hughie entertain us. Students from Cabot Junior-Senior High School will be selling the harvest – some blue and red potatoes, lots of bunches of fresh carrots, and bulk baby carrots great for rabbits – from the Cabot Student Garden, with proceeds going toward seed for next season. PLEASE NOTE We will have four tables available outdoors for flea market vendors. To reserve one please contact us here or call Brenna at 902-455-5793. See you there!

Hi everyone – We have an exciting market lined up for tomorrow, Saturday September 16, 2017. Brenna will be serving a variety of baked treats for brunch in the cafe. The ever popular Norm MacDonald will entertain us. AND we will be doing our first-ever apple cider pressing in the fire hall’s front room at 11:30. Come and see this deluxe manual press in action (co-funded by ***HERSS and the Cape North Farmers Market), give the wheel a turn and have a drink of fresh cider! – Claudia Gallagher

The northeast Highlands of Cape Breton Island – is a mountainous, rocky one, with harsh weather and many, if small, pockets of arable land.

Primary Goal of the Cape North Farmers Market:

To bring about a resurgence in growing, selling and eating local food. The fresh produce, fish, maple syrup, honey, preserves and baked goods at the market may be limited in quantity but they are unsurpassed in quality, and our vendors are the friendliest you’ll find anywhere! We carry baked goods, fresh produce, preserves, crafts, maple syrup and more.

Come and Support the Farmers’ Market ‘north of Smokey’, just off the Cabot Trail at the top of Cape Breton Island.
