Roadtrip! St. Jacob’s Farmer’s Market

Roadtrip! St. Jacob’s Farmer’s Market

This past weekend, my friend S (along with friends I and F) suggested taking a short road trip to St. Jacob’s farmer’s market.  Located about 90 minutes west of Toronto, the town of St. Jacob’s farmer’s market is a fantastic outdoor and indoor market full of vegetable farmer’s selling mostly Ontario produce; butchers specializing in sausage and pepperettes;  and cheese purveyors.  Across the street is an antique market and a small factory outlet.  However, the market is especially known for its apple fritters.  I’ve visited the market a number of times in the past and every time I go, the apple fritters stall in the small indoor food court has a long line snaking around the building.  This time though, we decided to go bright and early in the morning, 7am to be exact, and to my joy there was only a few people in line for apple fritters!  So after many tries, I finally got my hands on some apple fritters!  And they completely lived up to its reputation – they are thick apple rings that are dipped in a donut-like batter, deep fried and then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar!  Delicious!  Check it out!
