Which farmers markets with great winter grub
My husband and I are thinking of a little road trip tomorrow out toward Kitchener. As it is Saturday we were hoping to catch a couple of the year round farmers markets in the area. I'm looking for opinions on which would be the best to check out - Kitchener? Guelph? Cambridge? St. Jacobs? and how you rate the quality of vendors at any of theses. We are especially interested in meat.
I haven't been to St. Jacobs, but I've heard nothing but firsthand good things about it (i.e. it's been mentioned three times in conversations in the past week or so, and each time, its mention has been immediately followed by "You haven't been? Oh my God, you HAVE to go."
So I guess it's good!
I second this.
St Jacobs has devolved into mostly a stage show for the most part, The vendors and the wares rarely change if ever, and the truly seasonal produce doesn't come around until May.
That being said, It is a good place for your groceries or some weird items like smoked pork parts (are you really gonna use them?)
Save it for a sunny saturday morning in June.
P.S. I live in Waterloo
