Favourite thing to do: Go to St Jacobs Farmers Market - 01/26/11 11:31 PM
by Warren McNeil, One thing I like to do on weekend in Waterloo is go to the St Jacobs farmers market. The market is located in North Waterloo and is a great place to get fresh produce, meat and visit the shops. The whole area is surrounded by stores, restaurants, a playhouse theatre and a really nice Best Western.
Had a great day yesterday with all my fellow RE/MAXers! Many great speakers and lots of ways to add value for our clients. We also have some new tools to work with in 2011. 2011 is going to be a steller year! (5 comments)
