We were in Market Square coming and going to dine and to the museum while visiting St. John. We loved the street art, especially the tall "clock" with sculpture "people" seated at its base. The entire area is inviting.

Market square is a gorgeous place to visit! It feels more like a gallery mall in the UK than just a collection of stores and restaurants. An added bonus is the fantastic New Brunswick museum and the library, which I highly recommend. With plenty to...More

Always fun to go here on a Saturday morning. Love the different types of food. I always try something different. I do not recommend going to the wild carrot unless you like having a wrap with 4 pounds of spinach and 2 ounces of chicken....More

We visited the City Market and then followed the underground passage leading to the Market Square.What a lovely venue for the people of Saint John with the Library, Museum and shops as well as restaurants so readily available in one place.

Checked this place out while on business. You can go through the market from the Hilton without even going outside by using all the downtown pedways. Lots of nice stores, shops and restaurants within the market.

Not a great mall, but if you're in the area anyway, a decent place for a stroll. The statues near the entrance provided a fun photo op for our party of six who had just come off a cruise ship. This was a place we...More

Breezed through this property on our way to the Loyalist House. A little local mall with a library, housing the New Brunswick museum, some restaurants and a Tim Hortons. Has a cute little inner courtyard with fake fall flowers and tables. Fine spot to rest...More

Nice big open space for a cold or rainy day. A variety of events and stores as well as a good library but just nothing to really set it apart from other urban malls. Several restaurants but little to offer in fast food.

We're not shoppers and we're convinced that Tim Horton's owns Canada. It's as ubiquitous as Starbucks in the states. SO, yes, there's some food and yes, there are some shops, but the only reason to go there is to go to the New Brunswick Museum....More
