I had a great time exploring the city and visiting local businesses last Saturday for I Love Local Halifax's Open City event. I made my way from the old Farmers' Market, to the Hydrostone and back again to the NSCAD Port Campus for the Artist for a Day event taking in as much as I could along the way! My favorite stops are always the amazing backdoor treats from local restaurants. I'm sure I only captured a fraction of what was on offer for Open City, but the great news is, you can get out there to visit your local shops any day of the year. Try a new restaurant, visit a museum or support a local shop. Say hello to your local business owners! I had a great time making new connections and trying lots of fantastic food. I'm looking forward to next year already!
