Love a walk thru the market. Lots of different kinds of food and gifts and fresh produce. They even have a British section. There is a salad place and the food is amazing

Not what it once was 25% empty and nothing really unique or awesome anymore I used to never miss the place when I was here, now it's pretty "meh"

If you've never been to the city market, do yourself a favor and head over, you won't be disappointed! From the sites to the smells, it's intoxicating. You can find great values for whatever you may need or want.

I love urban markets like this one, and what the Saint John City Market lacks in size it makes up in charm. Looks like a great place to have lunch. We purchased some lovely cheap fruit and some delicious chocolate here. Well worth a stop. Doesn't take long to see if you're not having a meal.

One of the most amazing places to visit. This market actually hosts about 50-60 small businesses from around the Saint John area. You can find just about anything you want or need, including some major crafts, food, delicacies from the sea and major friendly people.

Everything from typical tourist souvenirs to handmade artisan goods here. Big variety of food, also. Something for everyone. Be sure to go during the day. It closes fairly early.

Almost Every time my wife and I go to the city, we try to make time to stop in to the market. Crafts, food, coffee and conversation. What's not to like? You can browse at your own speed up the tight aisles or slip into some of the little stores for a snack or look at some pottery. Worth the... More
