Every time I go to Saint John, I always make time to take a jaunt through Market Square. There's just about everything there that one will need, from books to suits and a lot in between.

Very nice area to visit and have a coffee. The decorations are beautiful and staff keep this place very clean. The selection of venues is very awesome and you can purchase many items. The restaurants are very good also.
