Small Business Pop-up Opportunity

The Opportunity

This opportunity is closed for the 2024 season and will re-open in 2025

Build Nova Scotia is seeking several local operators to “Pop-Up” their retail businesses in a modified shipping container for one-week opportunities within Salt Yard on the Halifax waterfront. The Salt Yard business district opened in 2017 and has become one of the most visited areas along the Halifax waterfront. Salt Yard is now home to over 25 small, seasonal businesses and is a popular venue for community events and activations. The intent of these additional pop-up opportunities is to help further this natural growth of Salt Yard by providing new and flexible platforms for small local businesses.

The purpose of the Small Business Pop-Up Opportunity is to:

  • Allow local makers, crafters, and small businesses the opportunity to use Build Nova Scotia infrastructure in a manner that complements traditional business development processes;
  • Increase locally made and sourced retail service offerings for all those visiting the Halifax waterfront; and
  • Enhance the experience that our visitors have during their adventure here at the water’s edge.
