Sitting at Market Square in downtown Saint John, the Saint John City Market has been in operation since the late 1700s, making it the oldest continuing farmer's market in Canada. But before you become too engrossed in the many mouthwatering offerings at the vendors' tables, make sure to cast your glance upward. The ceiling of this massive 19th-century building (the original market was held outside) resembles the upturned hull of a ship -- a tribute to the city's shipping industry.
