MUST READ: Winter Fun in Greater Moncton

DID YOU KNOW? The Pickle Planet Weekend Round Up began in June 2015! Since the pandemic we’ve shifted from weekly updates to monthly, but we’ve been at this for more than 325 weeks!! Want to know WHY? Check out our Facebook Page or read this article in Inspired Me magazine.

Let’s get going, shall we?!



The Moncton Market & the Dieppe Market are both open on Saturdays from 8am to 1pm, with fantastic options for local goodies.

Many smaller communities also have markets & great hidden eating gems, like Salisbury’s growing market/antique scene and the Little Red Rooster Cafe at the Green Pig Country Market, as well as the Old Church Farmer’s Market in Hillsborough.

Treat your tastebuds with a walk along St. George Street for Halo Donuts, Lost and Found Ice Cream, and maybe even a Taco in a Bag from Notre Dame de Parkton or something from Dolma. You’re also super close to Co Pain Artisan Bread Company & oodles of great restaurants!

The Arches of St. George hold regular pop-ups with some of the neatest makers around. Treats, vintage finds, jewelry, and so much more! Pop up to Apple Art Gallery & their new shop, deux pépins.
