We were vegetarian for over a decade because of a lack of trust in meat  production methods. Vessel Meats shared genuine facts about their products so  that we could make a fully informed decision. Solely for that reason, we started  to add meat into our diet. Vessel Meats was excited to teach us about how meat  is grown and processed in our province. Having a trustworthy source made us  comfortable and inspired us to try out new recipes and products.

This girl is knocking it out of the park. The beef bacon was amazing, we loved the pork pin wheels. Can hardly wait to get to some other products I bought. Great products, great service and lots of knowledge, we will be back.

Great selection from Nova Scotia farms, super friendly service with tons of recipe tips from Brianna and seriously addictive jalapeno cheddar sausages - Vessel is must-stop on our weekly market visits.

Brianna is fantastic and her prices are top notch as is the quality of her grass fed, pastured local meats.

Very happy with the meat we bought from Vessel Meats Saturday at Alderney Landing Framer's Market Saturday. Fresh, fair prices and great customer service! Good work! All the best in the future.
