On Saturday, the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market is welcoming back grocery item vendors to the mix. This is in addition to permanent stall prepared food vendors and produce vendors who have already returned. The hours of operation for the Saturday Seaport Market have been adjusted; the Market will now operate from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside and out, with preference being given to senior citizens and those with health considerations during the first hour of operation. The next phases of reopening will focus on reintroducing prepared food table vendors and finally artisan vendors.

In addition to the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market, several businesses located within the Halifax Seaport District have also reopened to the public or changed their operations to accommodate safety needs during this time of physical and social distancing.
