clic on a pic to enlarge it
         We had some major rain overnight, but we knew it was coming. Love to hear the rain on our roof while we are sleeping, it is so relaxing.  This morning very humid to start the day. But did get a nice early morning walkabout town.
         Home by 8 am and when Suzie ready we headed off to the St Jacobs Market in Waterloo. The Thursday market is nice here not crowded like on Saturday. This is the time of year to go. Especially if you want deals on fresh fruit and veggies, to make jams, sauces, freezer stuff the deals are amazing. But we only buy what we consume so sad to turn down some real bargains in fresh fruit and veggies. 
Here we are St. Jacobs Marrket
    So much fresh produce here in season it is overwhelming! 
cauliflower only $2;50
Huge cabbage $3:00
only $2.50 BC blueberries
      Then there is food vendors if you like, anything you want is here and all is good.
Not too crowded on a Thursday morning
Jumpy castle for the kids
    Then we into the big market building to our poultry guy. They have it all.
     We came for the turkey garlic sausage that we love. So lean, healthy and tasted like garlic just the way we love it ! Picked up 2 lbs..
      More vendors inside and lotsa food stuffs here if you like.
      Then  stopped by our Pepperete guy these guide dogs were here in training just amazing to see the trainers take care of them. Actually 3 of them here learning how to handle crowds.
        Now to Peddler's Village that is reopening after a fire that did some damage a month or so ago.
this busker doing well on drums,
plastic pails, bottles etc.
sounded pretty  good
     And the fish market has some wonderful fresh fish here, but we are stocked up right now and our freezer is full, maybe another time.
       Now back home for a light lunch and relax in the shade reading for a while then about 3 pm we having a major rain storm.
      And boy did it come down!
     Eventually we went inside for while, wind and rain was hitting on us. Inside read for a bit and get our pork ribs/w Sauerkraut on the Weber Q for the recipe click HERE or my recipe blog top right sidebar.
         Just added our salad, cantaloupe, fresh blueberries and strawberries from the market and we had a feast.
oh so tasty
     What a great  day we had here hope you had a good one too.  Life is good here just enjoying some interesting summer weather.
     Thanks once again for stopping on  by.

    1. It is always a wonderful market and we did buy a few things, but we are restricted to the amounts because of storage space as you know.

  6. Well, that's a mouthwatering story. And a lawn watering one as well. Country markets in Ontario are excellent.
