Wild Serendipity Foods is owned & operated by Michelle Zimmer. An engineer by profession, Michelle decided to pursue her passion for food and cooking by starting to sell products at the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market in March of 2006.
Based on the early success at the Market, a business plan evolved, which originally included catering, cooking classes for both adults & children, corporate lunch delivery, children's birthday parties, and of course, the Farmer's Market. Michelle built a commercial kitchen in the Avalon Shopping Centre to facilitate the food preparation and the cooking classes.
In 2010, Michelle traveled to Paris, where she took a class at Le Cordon Bleu on making Macarons, the infamously temperamental French meringue cookie. Perserverance paid off, and these delights are now one of her signature products.
In 2014, after teaching ~350 cooking classes over the years, Michelle and her husband built a commercial kitchen, attached to their new home, in Stonebridge, Saskatoon. While making family life much easier, with two busy boys, the new kitchen could not accommodate her very popular cooking classes, so sadly those came to an end. The focus for Wild Serendipity Foods is continuing to build a loyal clientele at the Farmer’s Market, and expand products to wholesale customers.
