Owner description: Recognized as one of Canada’s top 10 community markets, the Fredericton Boyce Farmers Market is the City’s traditional Saturday morning (6am-1pm) gathering spot downtown for fresh and healthy foods, craft, creativity and conversation. With more than 250 indoor and outdoor local suppliers from along the St. John River Heritage Corridor and across the Province, The Market (as it’s known here) is the place to discover seasonal products like fiddleheads and blueberries , ultra-fresh produce, including organics, meats & seafood, cakes & confections, breads, cheeses & homemade jams, fresh-squeezed juices & New Brunswick wines, artisan chocolates, specialty coffees & beans. Ethnic delicacies, from Chinese buns to Lebanese stuffed grape leaves and the City’s famous samosas, are also a big part of The Market tradition. A vibrant space with one-of-a-kind gifts, colourful and quirky, finds include pottery, jewellery, paintings, textiles and lawn sculptures. Breakfast is served up on site, either inside from the restaurant or outside in either of our two Food Alleys where it’s falafel sandwiches and buffalo burgers galore.

“Get there early and take lots of cash”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Get there early and take lots of cash as the vendors do not take debit and very few take mastercard and visa. Food is delish, crafts are a plenty. Highly recommended (Saturday mornings only 6am-1pm)

“Fab place to eat and shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We were staying at the Lord Beaverbrook hotel just down the road from the farmers market and took a walk over on Saturday morning. There is an excellent array of fresh vegetables, meat and fish as well as plenty of delicious cooked morsels. I enjoyed browsing through the crafty stalls and only wish I could have bought more. I can recommend the Vegan stall just by the entrance to the market which has the most delicious raw cakes and treats and the lobster rolls which tasted like they'd only just left the sea. What a fantastic market to have, the people of Fredericton are very lucky.

“Fun way to spend Saturday morning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

We were staying close by and decided to walk over on Saturday morning. It was a beautiful morning and there were lots of people! I was pleasantly surprised that there were quite a few gluten-free treats and snacks at the market. I would definitely visit again.

“Good Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

If you’re in Fredericton on a Saturday, the local farmer’s market is worth checking out. It is only open from 6 to 1, so plan your visit. It has plenty of local produce, meats and cheeses, plus many hand crafted wares. When we stopped there were plenty of food vendors, so do take advantage and sample the local food. We passed up the $10 lobster roll to try a couple of Danar’s better known as a gyro. Parking is limited, so plan on parking along a street and walking to the market. Getting there - just follow Regent Street down toward the lower older part of town and turn right on George Street and the market will be on your left. Weather permitting; there will be lots of outside vendors along with lots inside the markets building. Be prepared for crowds because this is a popular local attraction.

“How can you not love this place?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Great food, feesh and plentiful. Vendors galore with everything and anything. We're from Northern Ontario and if we had a market like this in our town, tourism would skyrocket. Great people, good prices, excellent quality of products.
