Blossom Bakery is a small wholesale bakery located on our family fruit farm in Jordan Station. Everything we do is homemade from scratch and we feature local produce whenever possible especially the fruit grown on our farm. We are most famous for our flatbread pizzas and veggie tarts which feature fresh toppings and gourmet cheeses. We make other goodies including scones, sticky buns, cookies, fruit pies and crisps, and fresh fruit salsas. We are available in farm stands and gourmet shops in the area and are happy to do special orders. Our website is blossombakery.ca
Cindy and Amie Mogford are another hard working couple. The mother and daughter team decided they wanted to go into business for themselves in August 2011. As they mulled over what kind of business they could do together, the idea of baking cakes came to mind. With no formal training, the two decided to go into business as the Cake Queens. In October 2011, they opened their doors right here in Grimsby and are now approaching their third year at their 76 Main Street West location. Cindy and Aimee have wanted to join the market for the past two years. A part time position opened up this year when one of the original market vendors decided to come to the market part time. This gave the team an opportunity to try out the market as a place to introduce their custom and specialty cake line by showcasing some of their 20 varieties of cupcakes, brownies, cake pops, rice crisps, sugar cookies and shortbreads. “While our main focus is specialty cakes for weddings, birthdays and seasonal events which can be ordered through the store” says daughter Aimee, we like showcasing our many varieties of cupcakes.

Pie’s n Such
When Pat Johnston is not planning raffles or zombie walks, she is busy in her home kitchen making the most marvellous of home baked pies. Pies ‘n Such has been with the Grimsby Farmers’ Market for three years. Baking is a hobby for Pat, following in her mother’s footsteps. She remembers as a child the smell of homemade pies, two of which were baked every weekend. When she was old enough, Pat helped to roll the dough. “Pies are comfort food”, says Pat, “they taste like home and remind you of Sunday dinners as a child”. To this day she still uses her mother’s recipe for homemade dough. Pies are filled to brimming with locally sourced fruit. She uses only the best and freshest ingredients in all he baking which includes squares, cookies, and fruit tarts. The business was originally started in the hopes that her children would present at the market to sell the pies and earn some money for university. Those children are now in university so Pat relies on her assistant Christine Taylor or husband to man the booth for her. Did you know that August 24 is National Peach Pie day!
