Best Farmers’ Market Stall

Getaway Farm, Seaport Farmers' Market

Gold Winner Getaway Farm Butcher Shop

Silver Winner Fruition Raw Foods

Bronze Winner Wrap So D

Getaway’s meat mongers keep meeting the needs of Halifax meat eaters. Owner Chris de Waal says the Best Farmers’ Market Stall win is a special honour since the farmers market scene in Halifax is bumpin’. And Getaway deliver a true market experience, especially on the weekend. All cuts are carved on site, so you can watch the butchers, talk to de Waal about the Getaway philosophy, and enjoy the dedicated service of their ever-friendly staff. “There’s nothing hidden,” he says. “We raise cattle and we raise awareness.” He says healthier land and animals makes for healthier people. Getaway bacon is the most coveted cut, selling out by midmorning on Saturdays. And since it works with whole pigs, once it’s gone, it’s gone.
