Fodor's Review

This block-long building lures shoppers to the city's North End with all sorts of one-of-a kind items. Flattened by the Halifax Explosion in 1917, the market site and surrounding area were rebuilt in a charming English-garden style using hydrostone—aka concrete. Shops of note include The Bogside Gallery for fine crafts, Lady Luck for jewelry and accessories, and L.K. Yarns for yarns and needlecraft accessories. After browsing, break for lunch at Epicurious Morsels, or grab "gourmet to go" at Little Europe.
