This is a summer and early autumn tour - Thursdays and Saturdays only.

Only in the summertime and early autumn.
Outdoor market is only open on Thursdays and Saturdays.
St. Jacobs is a lovely village an hour and a half west of Toronto. Go back in time and learn how Mennonites live their daily lives. A horse drawn carriage takes you into a Mennonite farm. After browsing the market we drive into the centre of the village to have lunch, see the tiny Mennonite museum and the silos. If we feel like it we can view the Kissing Bridge, the only covered bridge left in Ontario. We need to leave early in order to catch the hustle and bustle of the market.
This is an all day tour.
