suppliers, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel Property Management offers perfectly situated housing options.
St. Jacobs Farmer’s Market
One of Canada’s largest year-round farmer’s markets is only a 16-minute car ride from the apartments located at 550 Strasburg Road. St. Jacob’s Farmer’s Market is renowned for its delicious food selection including Ontario’s farm-fresh produce, meat, cheese and homemade baked goodies. For those who are looking to grab a quick bite, there are an assortment of ready-to-eat regional specialties and international dishes to tantalize your taste buds. Crafts and handmade goods including furniture, clothing and home décor items are among the many things available from the market’s hundreds of vendors. The outdoor market and indoor market’s hours located at 878 Weber Street North change with the seasons and when it is in full swing it is home to an eclectic mix of growers and their high-quality produce.
Every Saturday for more than 140 years the Kitchener Market has offered a delicious selection of meats, produce, dairy products and much more. The market is open all year round and offers unparalleled quality and freshness to their loyal clientele. However, the farmer’s market is only held on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Located at 300 King St East, the market is only a 9-minute car ride away from the apartments and will provide visitors with a unique cosmopolitan experience with its surrounding restaurants and shops. Oftentimes, the market is the central spot for the festivals and events held in Kitchener. For more information on Kitchener’s events and festivals, please click here.

This quaint and cozy farm store is open all year round and has a large amount of other fruits and seasonal vegetables available.
