About
Open year-round, Monday to Saturday, the Saint John City Market offers a unique shopping experience for locals and visitors alike. Nowhere else in Saint John can you experience a traditional "farmers market" while shopping for such a wide selection of goods and services, ranging from dulse to hand-made local crafts, and enjoy a delicious meal from one of the numerous restaurants, featuring local and international foods. 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great rainy day thing to do. We tried some of the food and it was delicious. Also a great place to get some local souvenirs. You won't spend a long time here, but it is worth the time you spend.

Not much to do or see. Small market with a few shops. Nothing special. Thought it would have been better. Maybe it is better when the cruise ship is town or closer to season. We went on June 1st, a Saturday at 4:15 and most of the places in the market were closed. The bar at the end had pretty terrible music on full blast.

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.
