Powerful Flavours from a Rugged Coastline
Our family-owned business produces premium sea salt in Hubbards, Nova Scotia, Canada. We have been meticulously crafting our salt crystals from the waters of St. Margaret's Bay since 2018.
Sea salt is made up of many complex and delicious natural minerals, including sodium chloride (which you might know 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!
Our gourmet cooking salts are the perfect taste of Nova Scotia’s natural landscape – crisp and electric, with an almost sweet finish. We recommend 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.
South Shore Sea Salt is a family-owned and operated business located in Hubbards, Nova Scotia. We produce artisanal sea salt from seawater harvested from the Atlantic Ocean on the picturesque and world-famous St. Margaret’s Bay. Our exceptional sea salt, along with a line of flavoured salts and seasonings, is prized by home cooks and professional chefs, bakers and chocolatiers.
Rebecca Wilson founded the business in 2018. She partnered with her mother Marsha the following year, and the duo sold their sea salt products at Farmers Markets, where demand quickly outpaced supply. In 2020, an online store was launched and a wholesale program was established. In 2021, sibling Andrew entered the business and re-engineered our salt production to keep pace with the increased demand for product. In 2023, we are full-time vendors at the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market.

Not just any salt would ever make it on our chocolate. But we're absolutely charmed by this spectacular fleur de sel... Home cooks and pro chefs, take notice, this salt is outstanding in flavour and its presentation is out of this world.

I first tried your Cheesy Garlic Seasoning from Christmas at the Forum. It is the best seasoning I have ever used. I use it on everything. My favorite is putting in my egg salad sandwiches.

I received a gift of your various flavoured sea salts and loved them!! ... I want to make bread for my son in law who is from Halifax and think he would love it if he knew it was your salt in the recipe!

My family knows how much I love to BBQ, so they got me your "Grill Master Gift Box" for Father's Day, this past weekend. What a fantastic collection of salt varieties and other BBQ essentials. We've already used the Garlic Sea Salt on some grilled vegetables and looking forward to whipping up a beer can chicken or two this weekend on the grill with the BBQ Spice Rub.
