  • Love shopping? Love local? Love great food? Well if you're like me and answered yes to all of these questions then the city market is the place for you, as long as its before 6pm because this placed is closed early and not open Sundays. Totally worth the trip.
  • A great place for visitors and locals alike. I go there to grab pizza or a coffee usually, but have bought Xmas presents and steaks for supper. Everything you want and beautiful too.
  • A fun place to visit when you are in uptown saintjohn.. With limits to see and great food and merchandise to buy. Building has a rustic old school feel about it.
  • One of the only places to get fresh and local food. Lots of fruits, veggies, seafood and meat cuts available for a good price. Along the sides are different restaurants, with sandwiches, pizzas or coffee. You can sit and enjoy your meal along the attached seating area. Closest market in the city you'll find to be similar to traditional style markets in eastern Europe or Asia.
  • Such a great atmosphere!! I love McGuinty time here. Every meal I've eaten had been delicious, although there haven't been many. Wish I could enjoy lunch at the market more often!
