I drop in a few times during the summer. The choice of generally popular fruits and veggies is good and prices are comparable to local grocery markets. I find that there is a lot of kitchy items. I do recommend the apple fritters in the...More

I have always found this market a great experience. The market has lost a bit of it's character in recent years due to the rebuild after the fire and it's popularity but still worth the visit!

This is a very large market selling all kins of food both ready to serve hot or cold, and to take home. Definitely worth a trip to see with plenty of fresh meat, fruit and vegetables to buy. Also some non food stalls.

St.Jacob's Farmers' Market has to be as good as it gets. Whether you are outside or inside, the choices are quite amazing. Multiple food vendors, fresh produce, meats, cheeses and desserts and many other products. Good prices as well. Highly recommended.

My husband and I love going to St. Jacob’s to pick up fresh produce as well as other items. Great way of supporting local vendors and buying fresh vegetables.

The stalls start winding down from about 2 - 2:30pm. Locals advised us not to go on a weekend. The best day is a Thursday for the freshest produce. Tuesdays are the worst - whatever is left over from the weekend.

For the indoor stalls and restaurant style vendors yes, but for many of the outdoor farmer fresh food even through they have debit/credit, when it gets busy you want cash to transact faster.

I didn’t see any -Stone Crock apple fritters are a good substitute. Also, they advertise Beaver Tails at the KITCHENER market for $2.50 each.
