We now also offer a full service floral shop, delivering the best in fresh cut flowers to Whycocomagh, Nyanza, Baddeck, Port Hood, Mabou, Iona, Orangedale, and surrounding communities.

The Bayside is an independent and locally owned business operated by husband & wife team Gerald Jackson and Marilyn MacDonald – both are native Cape Bretoners with a strong devotion to their community. They began this business because they wished to stay in their community and contribute to the economy of their community while creating a business that they both greatly enjoy.
