The St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market is OPEN:
• Thursday and Saturday: 7 am - 3:30 pm, all year
• Tuesday Summer Market June 16 - September 1, 2015, 8 am - 3 pm
The St. Jacobs Farmers Market is located in St. Jacobs Ontario, a rural farming community a short distance from the Kitchener/Waterloo area. St. Jacobs is home to a large population of Old Order Mennonite farmers and their delicious baked goods, meats, cheeses, maple syrup and fresh produce is what draws visitors to St. Jacobs Market.
As well as the large selection of food there is also an outdoor vendor's market where you can purchase all sorts of items including crafts, jewellery and farm produce. St. Jacobs Outlets provide visitors with even more stores featuring brand names.
St. Jacobs Market was established in 1975 with the merging of two stockyards. Originally the market was a place where local farmers auctioned cattle, hogs and horses. A few tents sprang up where local vendors began to sell their produce.
In 1986 a large timber building was constructed. This building was destroyed by a fire on the morning of September 2, 2013. Although the building suffered extensive damage and would need to be replaced no animals in the adjacent stockyards were harmed or killed.
