Farm Boy opens first location in Barrie, Ont.


Farm Boy plans to open its first store in Barrie, Ont. on March 31. The new location marks the chain’s 44th fresh market store.

“For over 40 years, the Farm Boy experience has been rooted in fresh, wholesome food, along with exceptional customer service,” says Farm Boy president and general manager, Jean-Louis Bellemare. “We are so excited to share our many Ontario-made products with Barrie and cannot wait to be a part of this thriving community.”

The 30,046 sq ft store will employ 119 people. Among its offerings will be more than 1,600 Farm Boy private label products, sweets made from scratch in the store’s Bake Shop, and the chain’s well-known prepared dishes and grab-and-go salad bar.

Farm Boy has been expanding rapidly in the past few years with eight stores opening in 2021 and a Guelph, Ont. store that opened on March 3, 2022.
