Birch Farms bakes a wide variety of specialty and original butter tarts in our family-owned and operated kitchen. Our head pastry Chef Madison, being a previous Georgian College Culinary Arts student, loves to create new and unique types of tarts for every special season and event.

We believe our tarts are unique in their size, along with some of our special flavors that you cannot find at other bakeries. Birch Farms strives to provide our customers with a unique, sweet, and delicious experience that leaves our customers wanting to come back for more every time.

Elegance by the Duo
As an artisan I try to create unusual pieces using various media. My photography chronicles years of travel, wildlife and people photos. From capturing the magnificent polar bear migration in Churchill, Manitoba, chasing the South African elephants or lions in an open vehicle in the dark of night, the adorable panda bears and children of China or simply waiting for the ever illusive Mississauga Lake Ontario loon, I have loved it all! My jewelry represents years of creating and designing. My felted scarves, purses and ornaments are created using an ancient Japanese style of felting known as ‘nuno’ felting. My hand-dyed, hand-painted silk scarves are unique pieces of art. Perhaps one of my pieces will catch your interest. A gift for that someone special or perhaps a gift for yourself!
I am a professional pastry chef. I did my apprenticeship in Denmark and have worked in Sweden, Finland, South Africa, the United States and Canada. After retiring, I relocated to Barrie and decided to sell my products at the Barrie Farmers Market. My products vary by the season but you can always find my chocolate truffles, made with the finest Belgian chocolate.

Main courses from India are the exotic feature of this stall. Traditional curries, butter chicken and Chana (spiced rice and chick peas) are all must-tries.

Lovers of curry will find Jasleen’s cooking becomes their first stop at the market.

Shawn Goulding Zurawski is a descendant of a long line of proud Métis commercial fishermen, including his grandfather, Henry LePage who opened the world famous Henry’s Fish Restaurant at Sans Souci, Ontario. Shawn’s uncle, Bernard LePage, not only continues the tradition of fishing the waters of Georgian Bay, but also provides the same great quality of fresh fish. Métis Fish Market, situated in Midland, Ontario, specializes in a variety of fresh fish as well as smoked fish. Shawn, like his grandfather and uncle, prides himself in providing a product that is not only healthy but of the freshest quality. Henry was once quoted in an interview with the Globe and Mail as saying, “what I won’t eat, I won’t sell”, a statement Shawn lives by.

Wye View Farms
David and Sharon Graham
Originally settled in 1852 by my great-great-great-grandfather, I am the sixth generation to maintain and operate our farm. The farm has about 43 acres of arable land. Most of this is clay soil, but there are about 12 acres of black loam, which has proven capable of producing remarkably sweet, flavourful produce year after year. This nutrient-rich soil, along with our avoidance of the use of harsh chemicals and pesticides, has enabled us to provide wholesome and healthy products to our customers.
