I've lived in Saint John for 10 years and I still get excited to head to the market. The atmosphere is always uplifting and the vendors are some of the city's finest. My favorite is a gift shop filled with pottery, called The Butchers Daughter. Be sure to go on Saturdays when even more vendors setup with a huge selection... More

The city Market still retains its country and folk appeal while serving the needs of today. Many old favorites remain such as fresh fish, specialized meat and seafood, art and crafts of all dimensions. Also the introduction of Asian, Central and South American culture blends in well.

The market is a nice addition to a beautiful walk uptown. You have plenty of variety as you walk through the isles. It has great food, and lots of creative works of art.

Bustling with locals in for breakfast or doing a regular shop, the City Market was a wonderful and enjoyable place to be on a Saturday morning. The vendors were warm and welcoming and the food and wares on offer plentiful. Decorated in fine holiday lights and garland, it was wonderful to wander the aisles and to discover fresh market fare...

We stopped here for a short while on a 6.5 hour coach tour around , from our ship. What an enchanting place and not what you expect when you enter. There are butterflies everywhere - not real ones - but others made so gorgeously. We bough paintings from a talented artist in there and handmade jewellery for my daughter. We... More

I can always find unique items and food in the market. Java moose has the best coffee, and creative designs has the coolest handmade jewelry! Anytime I want to get a unique gift or treat myself, I pay the market a visit!!

Folks on the ship said that we must visit the incredible City Market to see the produce, baked goods, meats, and other displays. We went and we saw!! Truly amazing and wonderful place to visit. We were also fortunate to see the... More

Recommended by a St. John local, who we met at Ossie's Seafood Restaurant in St. Andrews. What a treat it was to visit this historical landmark in downtown St. John. It was walkable from our B&B, but there was ample angle parking around the park across the street from the marketplace. Inside, there are local vendors of all types. From... More
