Open Air: St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market

Mercedes Corporation, which runs the Waterloo and St. Jacobs farmers’ markets in the south end of Woolwich Township, Ontario, will be closing the Waterloo market on Feb. 7.

The Waterloo Market, also known as "the Sunday Market," had operated from March to December with a mix of approximately 60 craft and food vendors. Vendors from the market, which has been in operation since the early 1970s, will have the option to move across the street to the St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market, according to a report in the Elmira Independent.

The building used for the Waterloo Farmers’ Market is being revamped for antique vendors and is expected to open in April.

The St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market operates year round on Thursdays and Saturdays, from 7 a.m to 3 p.m., and on Tuesdays during the summer months.

It features more than 600 indoor and outdoor vendors.
