Sample some of the most delectable small-plate dishes, irresistible sweets and local beverages that have elevated downtown Saint John into a true foodie destination.

After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive in Saint John’s historical downtown, which has become an extraordinary culinary destination. Your experience starts out with a lemon blueberry cupcake made fresh at Wild Flour Sweets and Treats.

You will then enter the iconic Old City Market through its original wrought-iron gates that still swing open each morning. Here, you will truly find a foodie paradise of sorts. It opened in 1876, barely escaped the devastating Great Fire of 1877, and has since attracted some of the finest food retailers in Canada. Be sure to notice the ceiling, which resembles an inverted keel of a ship in honor of Saint John’s long history of shipbuilding.

While browsing the stalls, you will be offered a variety of locally produced food and sweets. You can expect to sample dulse, a deep-purple sea vegetable that is dried and eaten by the handful like popcorn. Seafood small plates will showcase salmon prepared in a variety of ways that you may not expect!

Following your market visit, you’ll visit Pomodori Pizza, a locally owned world award winning shop where you will sample an all-time favorite with local flair- Maple Pecan Pizza. You will round your Day out with a stop at Beavertails for a delicious fresh baked maple glazed pastry.
