For those late nights at the office when cooking dinner is just another item on your “to-do” list or when a savory, pick-me-up snack is essential to get you through a dreadful afternoon, Birch Market just might be the answer you (and your tastebuds) have been craving!

What started as Birch Culinary, Co. (a St. Louis based catering group) has expanded to include a new market on the Illinois side of the river. The idea of Birch Market – a gourmet carryout bakery and deli – was crafted by owners Greg and Christie Maggi, both professional chefs.

When searching for a location for their new business concept, the Maggis were looking for the family-oriented atmosphere that O’Fallon embraces. Intrigued with the energy and support pouring out of the Downtown District, the Maggis knew Birch Market would fit in perfectly. The Maggis found just the right location at 227 West First Street, a completely remodeled building that boasts contemporary designs and is within walking distance of everything in Downtown O’Fallon, including the successful Vine Street Market.

Birch Market’s specialty is to create “a relaxed, convenient meal option that offers high quality and chef-driven food” says Greg. The couple finds joy in making dinner and events easier so that people can spend less time cooking, and more with family and loved ones. Christie affirms, “it’s a chef’s meal, so customers do not have to feel bad about not spending the time in the kitchen.”


Starting this June, Greg and Christie invite you to begin your morning at the bakery counter to grab a pastry and coffee or visit the sandwich station for an original sandwich or salad for a fresh lunch to look forward to. Need an evening meal? The Maggis will even make sure your dinner plans are covered with high-quality prepared dishes such as gourmet lasagna. Best of all, it just takes popping the dish in your oven at home after a busy day so you can spend more time with your friends, family, and pets, instead of your stovetop.

“We welcome Birch Market to O’Fallon and are excited to see what they bring to the Downtown District,” says Mayor Herb Roach.
