Commercial Kitchen

Our shared-use, licensed commercial kitchen space is available outside of market hours for use by small businesses and entrepreneurs looking for affordable options for food preparation.

To rent the  kitchen, you must hold liability insurance and a current Food Handler’s Certificate from the government of Nova Scotia. A copy of each must be provided to Market Staff before using the kitchen.​

Please note - our kitchen is a shared space. Common allergens are often used in the kitchen. As folks are required to bring their own equipment, cross contamination is low but not guaranteed.​
