Owner description: New Brunswick's Festival Place welcomes you to enjoy a taste of Market Square's finest as you shop, eat, play, and explore! Open from first coffee 'til last call, seven days a week, year round, we are proud to act as the cornerstone of Uptown Saint John! It's the perfect place to shop, dine, relax or play. We've saved the best for last, though: one of our finest features, the Boardwalk! Head out to our waterfront patio for some delicious food from our world-class chefs and a refreshing pint of Moosehead, and any other favourites to whet your whistle!

Breezed through this property on our way to the Loyalist House. A little local mall with a library, housing the New Brunswick museum, some restaurants and a Tim Hortons.

Has a cute little inner courtyard with fake fall flowers and tables. Fine spot to rest a bit or get out of the cold wind.

Nice big open space for a cold or rainy day. A variety of events and stores as well as a good library but just nothing to really set it apart from other urban malls. Several restaurants but little to offer in fast food.

We're not shoppers and we're convinced that Tim Horton's owns Canada. It's as ubiquitous as Starbucks in the states. SO, yes, there's some food and yes, there are some shops, but the only reason to go there is to go to the New Brunswick Museum. I wouldn't make a special trip there otherwise.

Great market with fresh food and lots of local craft vendors. Also numerous places to eat or have a snack or a treat!

There's a lot of foot traffic and it seems to be in the heart of the tourist area, uptown in St. John. It's worth a look around - even though I'm not into shopping for shopping's sake. The carved wooden totems on the corner make for some good photo ops. There are plenty of options for finding something to eat & drink. Inside the mall area it's nice, new, clean and safe. There's an interesting model of a wooden ship on the upper level, along with the St. John public library, and the museum shop on the lower level has locally crafted items and pretty postcards.
