Okotoks: The Perogy Guy cooking up generation's-old recipes
Okotoks - Perogy Guy
Perogy Guy John Opyc is well-known in the Foothills for his delicious perogy recipes.

Tap into your Ukrainian side and make a stop at the Perogy Guy at the Okotoks Farmers' Market.

John Opyc and his wife Barb have become known in the Foothills for their mouth-watering homemade and hand pinched perogies.

Recipes range from Opyc's Baba's potato and cheese, sauerkraut and cottage cheese recipes to newer creations including pizza and taco.

For something more western, try the Stampede - sirloin steak, locally-grown potatoes and onion, and real cheese and bacon.

If you’re looking to expand beyond perogies, try the cabbage rolls, borscht and garlic sausage.

The Okotoks Farmers' Market is open Fridays from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. just north of Okotoks.
