Visit the oldest continuously operating farmers market in Canada at Saint John City Market. The market's first charter dates back to 1785, and the site continues to thrive today with loyal farmers and customers. The building itself is said to have been built by unemployed sailors and is in the Second Empire style of architecture. Farmers, butchers, and fish merchants all have stalls throughout the market; look for tasty local snack foods and drinks as you shop.

    I guess I thought find plenty of fresh local produce, and my disappointment was great! Many were closed and really expensive prices. And not very "local" my positive, I wanted to find a souvenir for our tree! Then, perfect place to buy it. On the other hand, very expensive.

    Definitely worth at least a walk through if you are in Saint John! I recommend the maple products (and dulse, if you like dulse)- and highly recommend the seafood place (North Seafood?)  more »

    City Market is a staple in our city. I highly recommend that you go visit and take your time to absorb all there is to see from each vendor. There are some unique fixtures there and a lot of history.

    Lots of things to love about the market! So many options, food, art, take-out, toiletries etc. Lots of homemade goodies and all natural items.

    Great lively spot with a variety of tasty food options. Vibe is very much a market opposed to a farmers market. Location is great next to parks.
