St. Jacobs Market this morning

Where are we today ?
        Shortly after 9 am we headed out for the 30 minute drive to the St. Jacobs Farmer's Market always a very busy place to visit on a Saturday morning. Lots of vendors and the new coverall building is really nice, quickly erected last fall after the devastating fire that wiped out the older wooden building.
       So many vendors and all the fresh produce kept us walking and looking for a few hours. Lots of buskers and magicians there doing their thing makes for a great atmosphere.

     That was our morning excursion, always a fun time for us. Back home for lunch, relax for a while then off to Tavistock with our house. Gonna visit with Suzie's sister Rose and Ross, get together, a we get a chance to whip up supper for them for a change.
      Now gonna hang out , visit and have too much fun to do more blogging today, maybe an update tomorrow.Thanks again for the visit , see y'all soon .

  1. The blue circles for the buskers is an intriguing idea. I guess they must be regulated by the city?

    1. Not sure why the blue circles, have never noticed them before.

    2. Looks like each one has a number. "That's your spot, stay in it!" kind of thing.

    3. Yeah thats what it looks like.
      They do have an information booth and they know where every vendor is.
      If we can't find one we just need to check there and they can tell you if they are here and where they are located.

  3. Love your market. Great looking meats and pastries. Hey George - how to you make your map? I'm trying to figure out how to do one and I'm not having any luck.

    1. I create a map in google maps, I use the classic maps, then click to embed and customize the view. Copy and paste the html into you blog in the html view where you want it placed and its there in my template.
      A bit of fiddling, but once you figure it out works pretty good.

  4. You sure do end up visiting a lot of great markets. There are a few around here but not as many and not as big. Well, the one in Portland is huge. Maybe I need to start checking out the little towns and see what they have. I sure would like to visit ones like you do.

    1. We prefer the smaller towns as opposed to the big cities, they are usually much better.

  5. I have been to St. Jacobs. Twice, in fact! But I have not been to the market. Looks nice.

    1. St. Jacobs village is a nice small touristy town and the market only a couple miles south, with stock yards and all. Worth a visit.
