History of Saint John City Market

A designated National Historic Site of Canada, the Saint John City Market has a long and storied history. Two fires, in 1837 and 1841, reduced the market to rubble before the current incarnation opened in 1876. The building then survived the Great Fire of 1877, which razed the city of Saint John just a year after the market opened.
