" The Farmer's Market in the historic St. Jacobs and the picturesque town of Stratford "

Welcome to Rapid Fire, saturated unique little old-fashioned spirit of rural Ontario, piercing towns and villages, which we will pass to you. We'll go with you on quiet roads that cut through the patchwork of fields and farms, and where there are "slow moving vehicles ", or simply horse-drawn carriages of Mennonites.

First stop is St. Jacobs, a wonderful and largest farmers' market in Canada. In the market you will find fresh products from local orchards and farms, pure maple syrup, meats, cheese, pastries - all that the most demanding gourmet for. The uniqueness of this market is that many products sold here are organically pure because they are grown on farms of Mennonites who nursed vegetables, fruits, poultry and prepared foods like their ancestors have done for centuries. And it means - no nitrates, hormones and chemicals. All natural and extremely tasty! In this market, artisans and artists who come here from all over Southern Ontario offer visitors their work, you can find jewelry, home decor, furniture, clothing, tools, and much more. 600 manufacturers! Wonderful performances of street musicians!  After the market we’ll explore the town of St. Jacobs and learn more about the Mennonites who were the first settlers of the place.

From here the road leads us to Stratford. The city was founded in 1832 and named after Stratford -upon-Avon , the ancient town in England , and is its sister city . Admire the original architecture and visit Shakespeare Garden District neighborhood, home of the annual Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Although the city is not even 200 years old, its spirit and architecture take us to England.  It's impossible not to fall in love with this gem of Southern Ontario.
