All About Us

Gary and Carol Vreeker along with their family run The Village Bake Shop where you, our customers, are always the most important feature of their day.

Way back in 1979 Gary’s Mom, Terri Vreeker, founded The Village Bake Shop in the lively little Village of Orono (Municipality of Clarington).  Within a week, Gary’s fiancée Carol joined them and in 1980 they became Mr. & Mrs. Vreeker.

By 1987 they purchased the business from Terri. They made many improvements over the years including opening a Dutch-themed café in the Orono location. In 2009, they opened a second Village Bake Shop in the Town of Whitby (Regional Municipality of Durham), managed by their son Cory Vreeker.

In 2019 Gary and Carol Vreeker decided they would like to retire in the next year. To accommodate for that change, we made the difficult decision to close our Orono store and focus our full attention on to our whitby location. This location is being now mostly managed by their two sons, Cory Vreeker (store manager) and Nick Vreeker (baker).
