We are both so sad to hear the news about the overnight fire that burned down the main building at St. Jacobs Market this long weekend. Thankfully no one was hurt. Just last week we were there picking up some fresh produce for new recipes we wanted to try out. We’ve made many many memories there over the years, and hope that this won’t negatively impact the vendors too severely.
I’ve read that the outdoor market area will still be open on Thursdays and Saturdays, and that they plan to set up large tents for the indoor vendors to use. So if you happen to be in the area, or just want some of the best produce/meats/cheese/tea/pie, etc., please show your support and do some shopping at the market. There is talk of rebuilding the market quickly, and fast-tracking the building site plans and permits. Hopefully they will be back up and running by Summer 2014.
