The Village of St. Jacobs

The historic Village of St. Jacobs represents a bygone era, yet it is constantly being enhanced to make it relevant and current. Old Country charm abounds everywhere within the comfort of and welcoming country atmosphere in Woolwich Township.

The village radiates unparalleled beauty with its manicured fields and the meandering Conestoga River in the heart of rural Southwestern Ontario. In the surrounding area numerous roadside stands offer fresh produce, flowers and other items while the rebuilt world famous St. Jacobs Farmers Market is a destination for a cross section of local people and visitors from across Ontario, Canada and in fact around the world.

St. Jacobs is only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of urban life in Kitchener/Waterloo and a mere one hour away from the (GTA) Greater Toronto Area. It is truly a unique treasure where Mennonite life and customs are distinctly evident. Horses and buggies are welcome additions to everyday life.
