Saint John's City Market, with a charter dating back to 1785, is the oldest continuously operated farmer's market in Canada.
The market is currently housed in a Second Empire building completed in 1876. The building was built by unemployed ship carpenters. It is very unique. The roof resembles a inverted ship's keel and the floor slopes with the natural grade of the land. It is also connected to the city's indoor pedway system.
The market is located across from Kings Square in Saint Johh, New Brunswick. There is a lot of traffic from the Cruise Ships and the market sells a lot of crafts andacooked food along with produce and meats.
