The outdoor portion of the iconic St. Jacobs Market will reopen this week after a fire early Monday morning gutted the southern Ontario market's main food building.
Firefighters arrived on scene at about 1:45 a.m. and couldn't stop the fire from razing the building in Woolwich Township, just north of Waterloo, Ont.
There were no injuries.
The market announced online late Monday that the outdoor market and pedlar's village, another market building, will be open on Thursday and Saturday.
"So many of you have asked how to help. One great way to help is to come out and support the many vendors who will be there THIS WEEK," the market announced on its Facebook page.
The market's main food building was built in the mid 1980s entirely of Douglas fir columns and beams brought in from B.C.
The Ontario fire marshal is investigating. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
