While every aspect of the store has had its successes the bakery has been a standout! The crispy, buttery and delicious oatcakes and fabulous dinner rolls were a resounding hit! Once word got out about the bakery (namely the rolls and oatcakes – not to mention the cinnamon rolls!) people drove from Westville, Pictou, and all over to buy them. Many people bought oatcakes to send to family across the country and even as far away as England or Scotland.
A few years after opening the family added a canteen, this soon became well known for delicious fish and chips, pizza and more. To make room for the canteen and a larger bakery the store has been expanded three times, both out to the front and in the back.
In December of 2013, George’s grandson Tyler MacLane took ownership of the business and the legacy. Tyler’s entrepreneurial spirit and way with people make him exceptionally suited to owning and operating Crossroads! Tyler and his wife Kristen have two sons and to have this opportunity to raise them in a rural area surrounded by family is important to them both.
Stop by Crossroads Country Market for all of your general grocery needs, baked goods, or a snack in from the home-style canteen (with a weekly special that is right out of Moms kitchen). But Crossroads is more than that; you will find everything from local bottled preserves to fishing gear, greeting cards and gifts.
When you shop at Crossroads Country Market you support a local family who cares about you and the community in which they operate and the quality of product and service they offer. They’ve been doing it now for over 23 years!
