Nova Scotia farmers, fishers and producers are getting geared up for a province-wide event this Sunday. From 11am-3pm, there will be community gatherings in 11 locations across the province. Halifax's festivities will take place at Garrison Grounds, Citadel Hill.

Bring your own picnic or purchase from farmers or chefs. 17 producers will be attending featuring a plethora of goodies. From fresh fruits and veggies, homemade ice cream to seafood chowder, baked goods to meat pies- There's something for everyone!

The afternoon's events will include demonstrations from Canada's Seachoice Guide and the Ecology Action Center, live entertainment and a touch tank and petting farm for the kiddies.

This is a great opportunity to get out with your family and friends and meet the people putting food on your table. Check it out-You never know what treats you'll discover, made right here in Nova Scotia. Hope to see you there!
