St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market to Open Outdoor Market Following Fire

By Amanda Brodhagen, Farms.com

After a fire destroyed the main building of St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market over the long weekend, officials said the outdoor parts of the market are scheduled to resume Thursday and Saturday.

Damage is estimated to be about $2 million. The cause of the fire is yet to be determined, but initial investigations have determined that a sprinkler system could have saved the building, fire chief said.

Market officials thank the community for their support and have said that they are determined to rebuild. St. Jacobs Farmers Market is considered Canada’s largest year-round farmers market and is a popular tourist destination.
