St. Jacobs Farmers' Market has everything. There are three free-standing buildings to explore, as well as the outdoor vendors.
Seating Outside Peddler's Market Building
St. Jacobs Market and the next door village of St. Jacobs are the hub of Waterloo's Old Order Mennonites who farm the surrounding land.
You will see Mennonite women and young ladies in their traditional clothing (some with modern sneakers on underneath!) selling their produce, baked goods, and meats in the market, as well as other local farmers.
Grab a fair-trade organic coffee at Carole's Coffee in the Peddler's Market to get going as there's a lot to see.

All the buildings have a variety of market goods mixed in with bakeries, meat vendors, and fast food. Market goods include decorative items for the home, vintage books and records, jewellery, clothing, etc.
St. Jacobs offers horse-drawn tours of Mennonite farms in the area. They run $18.00 per adult, less for Seniors and children. These tours run an hour and fifteen minutes and bring you right to the homes of Mennonite farmers so you get an inside look and meet the family.
