Quintessentially Saint John
Jul. 2019 • Family
We look forward to the market each weekend as it offers a variety of food, art and other goods from local vendors. Spread out a blanket, sample some gorgeous food and take in the atmosphere. This is Saint John at its best.

Wonderful market place
Jun. 2019 • Friends
Many interesting crafts jewellery, paintings, flowers and handmade items , along with fresh produce, eggs straight from the hens, and other specialities topped off with numerous yummy ethnic food stalls make this the place to be on a Sunday . As well there are complimentary blankets spread on various parts of the grass where people can stop and enjoy their food or just sit in the sun and listen to great entertainment while watching all the happy families walking about.

Hi mhflood, Thanks for the kind words! We're glad to hear you're enjoying the blankets! We put those for the exact reasons you outlined above: so people can eat, people watch, listen to the music and take in the sunshine. Hope to see you back at the market!

Amazing variety
Aug. 2018 • Family
A pretty cool place to visit. Had a very wide variety of offerings, whether it was food, produce, art, etc. Some of the tents were selling Korean bbq, Ethiopian food, popcorn, oat cakes, and much more. The art and fresh produce also seemed to be very reasonably priced. There was even live music. Overall just a fun place to visit on a weekend, even if you don't plan on buying anything. It's probably a good place to talk to locals. Wish I had come here with an appetite because there would have been plenty of food to try!

So happy you enjoyed your visit! Folks in Saint John are typically super approachable so yes, it is a great spot to chat with locals and get some "insider info" on where to go and what to do. Be sure to stop by the next time you are in town!

Meh

Very small - maybe a few dozen vendors with tents. About half of the vendors sell prepared foods, the rest sell produce, eggs, maple syrup, and crafts. Everyone is very pleasant, but more vendors are needed. The location is 6-8 blocks from the Hilton Hotel.

Thanks for your review. We pride ourselves on being a small Farmers Market of 40-50 vendors catering to locals for their weekly food needs. We hope you had a good visit to Saint John and hope you come back to see us again.

Checking out the local fare in lovely Queen Square
Jun. 2018 • Friends
Pleasantly surprised by the variety of local goods available at this open air market on early Sunday afternoon. Found some wonderful South Asian spices. These turned out to be fantastic as they come individually packaged and numbered with step by step instructions so that you can create your own curry, korma or butter chicken. Artists also share their creations. The market is filled with families enjoying their Sunday outing. It’s worth a fresh air break and supporting the local community. Many old trees provide shade if you need it. Lot’s of space for children and pets.

Art, Music, Ethnic and Local Food, Innovative Shakers and Much More! A bunch of round pegs in a square!

I'm a Johner, and living outside my hometown. I used to be a vendor and so did my wife. We always loved the market vibe, the people and the wares being sold. We moved for work and have been away for two years.

We just recently visited, and it's amazing to see the changes in the market. It was already an amazing community venture, but the growth we noticed is amazing. Do yourself a treat and get to the market to eat and meet. Sit your bum (Trip Advisor does not allow the rhyming word) on the grass and take in the day and have a laugh.

Thank you to all the organizers , vendors and performers for injecting hope, and fun into our community!

Not Just Produce
Aug. 2018 • Friends
We had a wonderful time exploring this marketplace in the heart of the city. Lots of fresh local produce, meats, baked goods and more. You'll also find unique gift items from local crafter & artisans. Vendors are very friendly and more than happy to tell you all about their work. We found it a very interesting venue and it is totally indoors so it's a perfect place to visit even during inclement weather.

Thanks for you review! We are a completely outdoor market, so there may be chance you are mixing us up with the City Market, which is also an amazing venue in the heart of Saint John. We hope you had s great visit to our city. Come back soon!
