Farmers’ markets are renowned for fresh seasonal produce, which this time of year includes (but is certainly not limited to) apples, cranberries, pears, plums, pomegranates, Brussels sprouts, rutabagas, parsnips and of course-pumpkins.
The Boyce Farmers’ Market is the most popular market in Fredericton, open every Saturday at 665 George Street. Recognized as one of Canada’s top 10 community markets, Boyce is the place to find the perfect fall wreath for your front door or custom woodworked pieces crafted by local artisans. Pick up some sweet apple cider to go with your goodies, and you’re set for the season.
The Cultural Market at 28 Saunders Street is the only traditional market in town. Open on Saturdays, they offer a combination of local and international treasures like sushi and falafel as well as delicacies in cuisine and craft from Africa, Russia, Israel, Syria, and more.
As suggested by Tourism Fredericton, the Northside Market at 311 Saint Mary’s St. is a lovely place to grab a coffee and baked good or two at a place like Happy Baker Market & Cafe on a chilly October morning, followed by a walk by the Saint John River. There is no better way to enjoy the beauty of the season than to jump right in.
