Be Our Guest

We’d love it if you could drop by Sunday November 25th for our annual old fashioned Christmas Party. Ring in the Yuletide season with a big hunk of the chocolate Yule Log, cozy up with a mug of hot cocoa and tuck into a mountain of buttery shortbreads. For the little ones, there’s pictures with Santa, face painting, cookie decorating and live Christmas music with guitarist Peter Wainwright. It’s all free, so please drop by Sunday November 25th and help us ring in this truly magical time of the year, and thank you for all your tremendous support year round.

An Event Filled Month!

Wow! There’s so much going on in November downtown. The fun kicks off on Sunday November 18th when St. Nick makes his triumphant return to town for the Orillia Santa Claus Parade. So be sure to come in and warm up with a hot chocolate and one of our famous Texas Donuts. The holiday shopping season goes into high gear at the store on Black Friday November 23rd when we open storewide at 7 am with spectacular sales. That evening you can catch the smiles on the children’s faces as Downtown Orillia’s Christmas Candlelight Parade heads up Mississaga Street at 7 pm.

We Love to Cook!

At the Market, we love food just as much as you do, so we’re always experimenting and testing out cool new recipes. That’s why there’s a new culinary creation each week in our Back Porch Café.  From Perogy casseroles smothered with bacon and cheddar, to the Flying Pig Grilled Cheese Sandwich stuffed with pulled pork and mac ‘n cheese—our Back Porch is the go-to place for those looking for something fresh and different. Hot corned beef sandwiches on store-made rye, beef dips topped with homemade gravy … we’ll see you at lunchtime!

Going Wheat Free? Vegan? Dairy Free?

You’ll be surprised how many of our “everyday” bakery and café items are vegan or dairy-free. To make it a little easier to navigate, you’ll find 3 mini brochures at our counters that list all our “signature” vegan, dairy free, and wheat free items that can be grabbed right off the shelf. You’ll also find lists of all the cakes, pies, and cookies that can be special ordered ahead of time including vegan, dairy-free, and wheat-free dessert cakes. Need help ordering? Just give us a call or email us at info@mariposamarket.ca and we’re happy to lend a hand.
