Riverview, New Brunswick
April 6, 2005
Additionally, the market is quite popular (and a bit crowded at times) with young people, old people, and all the variations in between, all of them sure that they, above all others, have found the perfect place to spend some time. As a former-industrial building, it is also a bit of a maze, and you are never quite sure that you have seen it all.
My personal favorites, and there are many businesses from which to choose, are the cheeses offered by That Dutchman’s Farm on the Fundy coast or the "Damn hot pepperoni" from Sweet William’s Country Sausage in Stewiake. I don’t know how "sweet" Bill Parker is, but he makes up quite a variety of cheeses and pork products and his pepperoni is aptly named. The challenge to you is to come down and find your own favorites.
Now this may not be the best Saturday farmer’s market in the Atlantic Canada (our personal favourite is in Fredericton, NB, largely due to the really cosmopolitan flavour there) but it is a great place to spend time. The architecture lends a great deal to this market, exposed stone walls and arches, etc., as well as the crowds of people who come to see and be seen. Hey, if you miss the market, you’re missing the flavour of the Maritimes.
