Halifax's secret neighbourhood hangout, this is a good place to visit for some local hangouts. Maybe getting a bit more commercial than it once was, but still a good standby for getting away from the main sites.

Thanks, so much, for taking the time to post... There is lots happening in the North end. Great to see all of the new businesses. At the Hydrostone Market we remain focussed on a mix of proprietor type/small businesses offering. Hope you will visit us again. More

Unique area of Halifax to browse. Great little shops from yarns to food. Unique little restaurants that provides great appetizing choice of foods for lunch, brunch or dinner ie Epicurious and smaller cafes. Liquid Gold is there also . Amazing Balsalmic Vinigers. Loved it.

A little area of shops and restaurants in the north end of Halifax, some good and others not so good. Worth a quick look though.

When visiting Halifax for an afternoon or a day, take a break and head to the northern end of Halifax for a casual stroll back in time at the Hydrostone Market. The little craft shops, floral design boutique, bakery, restaurants (even a Starbucks hidden at the end of the street) all add up to a pleasant way to spend a... More

This little area in Halifax reminds me of strolling along a street in Europe. There's a beautiful shop for olive oil, a shop with crafts that are exquisite and let's not forget the Bistro for a fine meal. It's a great destination for some shopping and a coffee or meal.
