The Lockside Canteen at Shubie Park

Our tacos are made to match the technique of authentic Mexican road-side taquerias. They're wrapped in fresh, hand-made, naturally gluten-free corn tortillas. The fillings are made from local, responsibly raised meats when possible and we just about always have a vegan option on hand. Peppers for our hand-made salsas come from either local farms, like Off Beet Farm, or are hauled from our annual travels to Mexico.

You'll also find our signature flavoured lemonades squeezed right in front of you, as well as a rotating menu of additional refreshing beverages like aguas frescas and smoothies.

For those with a sweet tooth, we've got our fruit filled and preservative free popsicles & freezies and ice cream floats made with your choice of cold brew or lemonade.

We try to represent as many great local companies as we can possibly fit in our little shack. From the cutest ever dog treats by The Littlest Pet Bakery, to the best cold brew coffee you'll ever taste made by Low Point Coffee Co, to Halifax's best fair trade and organic loose leaf tea provider, World Tea House. We regularly use products from Off Beet Farm, Hodgepodge Farm, and Martock Glen Farm in our tacos and treats.

You’ll find us next to the Fairbanks Centre Museum in Shubie Park, Dartmouth.

Driving? From Downtown Dartmouth, take Ochterloney St to Prince Albert Road and keep going straight. Take the left fork when you see Superstore ahead. Head North/East on the Waverley Road towards Fall River and follow the blue signs with the keys on ’em.

Biking? Simply follow the canal! There's beautiful trails along Sullivan's Pond, Banook Lake, Lake Mic Mac, and through the "Deep Cut" that connects Mic Mac to Lake Charles. For you history buffs, we're right beside lock 3, between the dog park and campground beach.

Taking Transit? Ask for a transfer!

Take any bus that gets you to the Dartmouth Bridge Terminal (#1/#10), then transfer to bus #55. OR ferry to Dartmouth, hop Bus #54, then transfer at Mic Mac Mall to bus #55. Get off when you see Montebello Road, then walk 7 minutes down Locks Rd. 


If it's a rainy day, we might be closed! Be sure to check Instagram or ask us on Facebook to confirm that we're open! We don't mind 🙂

We're temporarily on hiatus from the market. Please come see us at Shubie Park to fill up your bottle and get your freezie/lemonade fix!

We formerly brought with us a variety of changing flavours of lemonade made with freshly pressed lemon and hand-made flavours available to drink right away or take home in a handsome 750mL glass swing-top bottle.

Want a frozen treat instead of a drink? Seasonally flavoured freezies are also available!

Not sure if we'll be there? Ask us by email or Social Media!


Summer is a busy time! Don’t be surprised if you see us set up at your favourite event, slinging freshly pressed lemonade and refreshing ice pops. Regardless of where we pop up, everything will always be made on the spot so you know you’re getting the best possible treat.

You may have spotted us at events all across NS, such as Hal-Con, DCAF, Dartmouth Makers, Halifax Crafters, Coast Food Truck Parties, #NXNMRKT, and dozens more.

We’ll do our best to keep Facebook updated with our current list of events, so check over there often!
