Such a lovely place. A lot of healthy choices, fresh products, and made vendors. Loved the apple fritters. Recommended and I only wish I lived closer. Saint Jacobs village is a must see too.

Great location, easy to access and free parking. Need a few hours to really enjoy. We like to go early, buy our fruits and veggies , load the car and then tour the buildings. Dont miss visiting this special place!

I collect farmer's markets and this is the best one I've ever been to. The cinnamon buns in the farmer's market building near the stairs brought tears to my eyes - just like Grandma used to make. "Quilted Heirlooms" brought tears to my husband's eyes as I couldn't resist buying a quilt ;) While we were there in November it... More

Hints: Get there early! Parking is crazy and if you don't want to walk very far (or have car guests that can't), earlier is better. Only open Thursdays/Saturdays Eat something first; you'll be tempted to buy everything because it smells so good If hungry, get the back bacon sandwich with egg and slice cheddar cheese and choice of fixings on...

Great fresh produce and fresh baked goods. Lots of different places to eat or get food to go. Lots of fresh veggies/fruits and breads. Does have some shops to buy things. It wasn't what I was expecting but it was still a nice experience. The apple fritters are a must!

You have to get there early for the apple fritters which you can't miss. They are the best. Get a box of 12 and another few in a bowl with ice cream and maple syrup. All kinds of meat and cheese from different vendors. The best cream honey I have had in years. Very nice crafts and lots of product... More

I had a young visitor from Scotland come to stay for a few days while in Canada. One of the places I decided to take her was St. Jacobs Farmers Market. She was thrilled with the size, colour, goods and people. She took several photos to show the folks in Scotland. We had good food, bought souvenirs and baked goods.... More
