Local Foods Mart

Local Foods Mart is a grocery store and café that features products sourced mainly from within 100 miles of our doorstep: fresh produce, meats, milk, eggs, cheese, bread and baked goods, gluten-free baked goods and entrées, prepared foods, and scrumptious homemade ice cream. Our goal is to provide the best foods from our region in one central place that’s walking distance for most of the residents of downtown Barrie – and an inexpensive delivery service for nearby homes and the boat docks.

More up-to-the-minute news can be found on our Facebook page and Twitter feed, or you can sign up for our (almost weekly) newsletter.

Please note that our north entrance (on Dunlop St) has a set of stairs you must descend to get to the Harvest Market Bistro. Our south entrance (on Lakeshore Mews) is wheelchair-accessible and also has plenty of parking.

Local Foods Mart Closed Permanently
on July 31, 2016

Local Foods Mart opened June 8th 2012, and operated for 4 years.

Two and a half years ago, we were blessed with the birth of our wonderful daughter, with whom we spend far too little time, and we have decided – even though the business was doing well – that we want to enjoy this precious time with her and therefore closed our business.

We still have some of our equipment for sale on Kijiji – it's lightly used and in excellent condition. Fridges, freezers, shelving, track lighting, ice shaver, meat slicer, panini press, cook & hold oven, vacpac machine, induction stoves, reverse osmosis water filter, cash drawers, receipt printers, 70v speaker system, 4 cam security system, competition-class two group espresso machine, single cup brewer, and much much more!
