It started with a vision of a small charming shop with a comfortable apartment upstairs. Tracey Pritchard, a former Toronto caterer, food writer, restauranteur and consultant spent years looking for the right spot collaborate with her daughter Alex.

Small became big when Tracey’s son Nick, a Toronto-based realtor, found 6 Water Street, a 150 year old heritage building and former flour mill in the heart of downtown St. Marys, Ontario, a short drive from the family’s former farm.

Alex O’Shea  holds a Bachelors of Science and Masters in Nutrition Communication from Toronto Metropolitan University.  She has spent over 20 years working with other nutrition professionals and chefs developing sustainable  products. 

 Inspired, Tracey’s family began the design and revitalization plan that would restore the property to its original integrity and beauty.



The Flour Mill Shop is a destination food shop and the  hub of the Mill. Located at the north end of the building Tracey and Alex's partnership has created a welcoming  space to share our passion for good food and drink. 

Rooted in family values, the Flour Mill Shop curates a selection of unique products and experiences with a focus on integrity and personal service.
