  • It was a little sparse today due to the pandemic, but this is a fantastic market. One of the most historic, and my favourite east of Montreal.  more »
  • Decently sized market with plenty of vendors! Loved the historic venue with the high ceilings. It was extremely quiet when we arrived; however we were also visiting early in the morning in February...  more »

  • My favourite spot in all of Saint John. When they decorate the high ceilings it makes the place feel magical. If you are a fan of different kinds of food, homemade products, and hand made things you will love this place. Do not come to Saint John without checking this place out. It is the heart of Saint John and really gives you the old feel.
  • One of the best places to visit in Saint John. Whether you want a quick treat, lunch or something to take home for dinner. Highly recommend it. Everyone is friendly and you see familiar faces.
