About
Open year-round, Monday to Saturday, the Saint John City Market offers a unique shopping experience for locals and visitors alike.

The market is alive with the sounds of busy clerks and shoppers, the aroma of fresh food, and colorful displays of produce, meats and seafood. Browse for Maritime crafts, imported items, and items hand-crafted by the City Market's own resident artists.

We stayed at the Delta, which was centrally located. That allowed us to walk to the pubs and restaurants downtown. At first glance, Saint John appears a bit drab, but there's lots of history related to the United States, as well as the colonization of Canada, to explore. The Farmers Market was great.

This is a farmers’ market on steroids! Acres of anything and everything one want, even things one doesn’t want☺ Kid in a candy store cliché ring a bell? There are, of course, fruits, veggies, baked goods, and a host of other food items. Kitschy gifts galore, and many useful items are available. The market is on several floors and corridors lead to separate specialty businesses. I found it overwhelming, but enjoyable.

I was disappointed and this would have been a stop on our tour that I would have skipped. I gave it 5-stars since the tour brochure accurately described the place. They definitely used some fancy photography to make this place look more interesting than it really is. We did buy artwork there, so that was a plus - but you can skip going here.

Incredibly pricey for a farmers market. The produce looked fresh but since we stopped at a cruise ship we did not purchase anything. The T-shirts and other trinkets that people were selling were priced incredibly high for a farmers market which was disappointing to us.

Not much open on a Sunday morning so there is no need to visit until later in the day. Even if all the stalls were open I doubt if this would be a desirable stop.

It takes all of about 5 minutes end to end, but if you take your time, there some very unique items within - mainly hand crafted and artisanal.

what a sad sad place to visit. I expected more. Supposed to be open daily to 6 but when we arrived at 3, half the stalls and places were closing for the day or had already shuttered. This was a summer Friday afternoon. As a visitor, we were disappointed and let down. So much potential but more like a wasted space of what once was in my opinion.

I was expecting it to be a larger market. There were some sections that were empty, maybe because of COVID.
