St. Jacobs Farmer's Market, a hockey game win and fun with the family !

Where are we today ?
     What another wonderful day in Canada. Almost sunshine and milder temperatures just about freezing. Not much sunshine but could be worse.
     An early morning trip to Plattsville and hang out with guys for a bit. Home to pick up Suzie by 9 am we packed a lunch and head off to the St Jacob's Farmer's Market. Open year round Thurs and Saturday.
a few snow fluffies on the way
but not a problem

        A mild day and most vendors inside but still a few die hards set up outside. We check out the cover all first, lots of good stuff in there. Veggies and things.
Hand made brooms in St Jacobs 
so much good stuff here
Peddler's Village
outdoor fireplace
even a few outdoor vendors
        back inside to check out more stuff.
        Then we found Hilltop poultry for some Garlic Turkey sausage we love.
picked up enough for one dinner
while we were here
        We had packed a lunch to get us through the day and headed to Plattsville to watch Grandson number 3 in a playoff hockey game. He scored the first and the last goal. They slaughtered the Cayuga team 9 to 1.
warming up
        It was  a good fast paced game lots of action going on. So nice to get a chance to see more of our family and grands while we are here.
        Now back to Tavi time to whip up supper.  A couple Haddock fillets baked in the oven with Panko bread crumbs  for the recipe  click HERE or my recipe blog on the top right sidebar.
         Suzie's sister,  Rose and bil Ross have a toaster oven so I thought I would give that a try. Was surprised it worked wonderfully did the trick in no time flat.
    The fish is the pond outside did survive the winter looks like they are all alive and well.
the pond is now almost thawed
Suzie reading and  Molly (inside kitty)
snoozing on her lap
sure hit the spot tonight
       Now that was our fun day here in Ontario, surviving this cooler weather and having fun with family . Hope you had a good one too!

Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this Fall and Winter..


  1. We'd love to spend more time outside but with Kathy's Medical issues it is better for us to stay indoors for our walks.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. That is too bad, because we love to live outside as much as possible

  2. Temps just above freezing and you call it mild? You really are hardy Canadians! :cD

    1. After some bitter cold weather, this is mild. Not warm or hot just milder.

  3. I love those markets... love seeing other folks photos of them! Glad you're getting in some hockey games while there ;-)

    1. We love the markets too, more vendors in the summer of course, but still lots here year round.

  4. You wouldn't want to go to that Farmer's Market on an empty stomach. You my leave with your wallet a bit lighter...hehe

  5. Looks like a fine way to spend a winter Canadian day.

  6. Dinner looks great! We need a good farmer's market like that in the lower mainland.

  7. You'd have to have a pretty big suitcase to take back with you if you started shopping at that market. I doubt you'd want to do that. However, they sure are fun to browse through.

    1. Not taking anything back but do enjoy the outing.
      Always a fun visit


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
