Just before you hit the Causeway on the Nova Scotia/Cape Breton border, you will find a little gem of a place the locals call Auld's Cove. Home to a pretty big puffin statue, a large iceberg sculpture and an impressive paper mache lobster in a trap. It is thought to have been named for Alexander Auld, an early settler but it is known best today for a man names Johnny Pettipas (silent s), owner and master of the Pettipas Farmer's Market.

He sells (and boy does he sell!) all kinds of things from local produce to Terry Fox ribbons to souvenir t-shirts to collectors spoons to funky art and key chain thermometers. He can claim to have some of the best seafood you'll ever eat from mussels to lobster to chowder and that's just the beginning.

We stopped in and Johnny gave us his famous Nova Scotia welcome. He is an energetic guy who represents many of the things we embrace about ourselves as Canadians. He is welcoming and friendly and generous, if not a bit kooky, in the very best way. He could talk to you forever (and he will) about the local history and we could really listen to him all day (and we did) with that lovely Acadian accent.

But don't be deceived by this shop's facade and trinkets, Pettipas has some of the best seafood chowder and seafood plates you will ever eat!
