Gourmet sea salts and seasoning blends made by hand in Hubbards, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Handcrafted salt from Nova Scotia

We are a small, family-run sea salt producer based in Hubbards, Nova Scotia. We have been meticulously crafting our salt crystals since 2018, and sell our products at farmers’ markets, online, and at fine local retailers. 

Our gourmet cooking salts are a perfect taste of Nova Scotia’s natural landscape – crisp and electric, with a sweet finish. We recommend using our salts for finishing a dish, seasoning sauces, spicing up snacks, or for adding a little something special to baked goods. You can also use it in place of table salt at mealtimes.

Sea salt is made up of many wonderful natural minerals, including sodium chloride (also known as table salt). These minerals vary depending on where your salt comes from, as each shoreline has a different mineral composition. This is why every sea salt is different, and has a unique flavour profile!

We package our salt in reusable and recyclable glass containers. We also use biodegradable labels and cellulose packaging – it looks like plastic, but it easily composts! We are always looking for new ways to lessen our footprint and to use new technologies to offer a waste-free product.

About Us

South Shore Sea Salt is a small mother-daughter business based out of Hubbards, Nova Scotia. Rebecca started making sea salt in early 2018, and began to sell her salts at the local market as a product of her creative studio. By the end of the season it had been such a success that she joined together with Marsha to establish South Shore Sea Salt as its own independent business.

We produce our salt from April to November, weather dependent. We prioritise making environmentally friendly decisions around our products and our packaging. Some of our earth-friendly options include reusable (and very cute) glass jars for our salts and gift sets packaged using biodegradable cellulose instead of plastic..

Farmers' Markets in 2020

You might know us best as vendors at the Hubbards Farmers Market. As the landscape for markets has changed in 2020 due to COVID-19, we have launched an online store to be able to connect with our customers far and wide.

As markets start to adjust to new formats (such as socially-distanced pickups), we will be participating as seems appropriate. We do offer an option via our online store to order and pick up your order at the Hubbards Farmers Market on Saturday mornings starting July 4th, 2020. For the latest updates. please visit our Instagram or Facebook page.

Put the sea in your seasonings!
