Snappy Snacks began out of love and a desire to help women enjoy breastfeeding. When you are stressed out, and it’s a struggle, it’s hard to see the joy that it can become. Snappy Snack’s line of Lactation Snacks wants to help you meet your breastfeeding goals. By naturally increasing your milk supply with our Snappy Snacks, you save the cost of formula top-ups, skip the bitter teas, and don’t have to gag down bowls of oatmeal and handfuls of pills. Plus, your baby gets all the great health benefits of only drinking breastmilk.
Snappy Snacks cookies are based on five lactogenic super foods: Oats, Ginger, Flax Seeds, Sesame Seeds, and Fenugreek. They aim to make all their products healthier than the average baked treat, easy to use, and highly effective. Snappy Snacks are a delicious treat for moms to enjoy and babies to grow on. So sit back, relax, and have a cookie!
H&Co specializes in handmade goods for babies and moms. Their signature product is the bandana bib, which they initially developed as a stylish solution for their own drooling babies. Next thing they knew, they had other parents asking for bibs for their little ones, and H&Co was born.
H&Co also makes for moms to wear wood bead and fabric necklaces that are safe for busy and teething babies who want to grab at and chew on mama’s jewelry. Their products are 100% cotton, pre-washed in natural detergent, and handmade in Barrie.
Gypsy Rose Naturals and More
Gypsy Rose Naturals is a small, home-based business started as one of the owners looked for soap that did not dry the skin but would be good for her granddaughter’s
excema. After much research and recipe testing, they came up with a line of soaps, bath bombs, bath salts, and foot scrubs, all made with natural materials and scents.

After being diagnosed with food allergies 3 years ago, the owner of Gluten Free Goodies looked at the store for safe food. She found there wasn’t much available, and anything she found was very expensive. She had always been a baker before, so she figured she could probably learn how to bake gluten- and dairy-free. After about 6 months of friends and family telling her it was the best they ever had and she should sell my baking, she took her baked goods to the Orillia Farmer’s Market, where she has been selling for 1.5 years.
