St. Jacobs, Ontario

After we had lunch, Gord and I walked around downtown St. Jacobs, poking in some of the shops. If you are looking for handmade crafts and quilts, it's a good place to go.

Here I am posing by the post office.

This renovated building has lots of great stuff ...

Including a massive model railway ...

and gorgeous quilts ...

We walked along the quaint main street ...

We headed to the farmers' market, which is held on on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

There are hundred of vendors selling meat, pastries, veggies, fruit, cheese, clothes and more.

The St. Jacobs area has a large Mennonite population.

We walked outside and checked out the vendors there.

Next time we'll bring a cooler so we can buy some fresh meat and produce. I'm going to head to St. Jacobs in the fall to do some Christmas shopping.

That looks like a wicked market! It's a bit fancier than Halifax's.

Looks like the kind of place I'd enjoy exploring! Neat pics. I like the pics in your more recent posts as well.
