About Sweet Apothecary

All it takes is a little magic...

Hi! My name is Marissa. And while I don't use any actual spells to create my baked goods (despite what some may claim!), I do believe in the magic of a homemade dessert - especially for those who are used to going without.


Instead, each recipe has been perfected without the use of eggs, dairy, nuts, soy, and gluten through hundreds of trials & experimentation. And lots of taste-testing too!

I keep my recipes simple, uncomplicated, and entirely plant-based. And I promise everything is delicious too - I would never serve anything I would not or could not eat myself!


All the goodies I make are safe for vegans, and those with the most common food allergies - so I can eat them too. I have been anaphylactic to nuts since birth, and discovered a severe soy allergy after going vegan in 2018. Then, just this past September, I went gluten-free as well to resolve some final gut-health issues.


Over the past two years, many amazing vegan and/or gluten-free bakeries & restaurants have opened here in Barrie, but there was still nothing I could eat that covered all my dietary needs. So, I decided to make my own.

Sweet Apothecary Bakery started in my home kitchen, and is on its way to being so much more because of the love and support of my community - and just the littlest bit of kitchen witch magic too. ;)

You can find me every Saturday 8:00am-12:30pm at the Downtown Orillia Farmers' Market, or place orders via email for pick-up during the week!

See you soon...
