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.

Calabash Market is a family owned grocery store. Produce is always fresh. Supplies are ample and the kids and adults working at the store are kind, friendly, and helpful.

Nice to see a beautiful historic building being used. Prices a little high, with very limited selections. Enjoyable to walk through though. Some souvenirs, coffee, and chocolates are available.

Really vibrant hall with individual offerings of food, souvenirs and all sorts of stuff you never knew you needed, like a glass hummingbird suncatcher from Pat’s Secret Garden ….
Includes a very resourceful visitor center too, so glad we made this our first stop.

A fun time at the market with really neat vendors. It was easy to find, walkable and the vendors were varied. A glimpse into downtown life in St. John.

We came here to grab some lunch. This place felt like a tourist trap to me. Very crowded, not the greatest selection of food choices. The food we bought was just ok. It is adjacent to a mall, which looked nice but which we did not explore. Also, near a public park, with a few shady looking people there. Skippable.

A small indoor market in a historic building. Quite a few fresh fruit & vege vendors, numerous craft stalls, a tourist information outlet, and a couple of cafes.

This place was worth the visit and one of the experiences you have to have to enjoy St John. Plenty of food. Recommend Billy's but the sandwich shop was excellent as well. All and all great fun and is close to everything.
