A long and regal tradition...
The City Market, the oldest continuing farmer's market in Canada, forms the historic centerpiece of a revitalized city centre.
The Royal Charter establishing the City of Saint John in 1785 provided for the operation of public markets, naming the Mayor of the city as Clerk of the Market with power to grant licenses to farmers, craftsmen and others to peddle their wares. Each license bore the Mayor's seal and commanded a fee which comprised a portion of the Mayor's compensation at that time.
And over all, the Crest of the City of Saint John holds a prominent position above the Germain Street entrance. The official seal of the city, its symbols tell the story of a proud history in fishing, forestry, shipping and industry - the strengths of our forefathers and still our strengths today.
