Great fresh food vendors in a cute indoor location. You can get fresh produce, meats, seafood, wraps, pizza, Korean, and other good stuff for lunch. If you are in the mall complex, bypass the fast food in the food court and head up to the Old City Market for much better food!

in the middle of St. John, this market has artwork, a ship's hull design and interesting architecture all around it. As far as markets or farmer's markets go it isn't big but it has a good mix of food, wine (yes a NB winery sells its wares there) and crafts. It opens early. A very pleasant Saturday morning.

I could not pass up visiting St. John without stopping at this historical market. Parking is pricey, with street meters all around. Fresh bread, fruits, vegetables, meat, deli food are all around. The best place however, was the fish market. I cannot remember the name, but the cold smoked salmon was the most flavorful fish I had tasted this entire... More

We love the market. Every time in St John we go to visit the market. It's history that we don't get in Northern BC.

I go here almost every day and it's one of my favourite places. If you come to SJ you have to go to the city market.

The Old City Market is very comparable to Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston. Inside a classic old building this market has every type of ethnic food and many fun shops. My wife and I purchased some maple syrup (produced locally) and some fun British soda. The building itself is also part of the allure. If you go to Saint John... More

My wife and I enjoyed visiting this city market. A lot of fresh vegetables, fruits and meats. A lot of interesting things to purchase. We bought a freshly made sandwich for our trip on the ferry over to Digby. If your in St. John, don't miss visiting the old city market.
