From plants and flowers………..to buns and bread. This year we are sporting a new name, Market Bakery.
Our business started as Earthworks Gardens in 2009 at the Farmers Market. Gradually, we worked into more baking and less plants – now only selling plants wholesale.
Market Bakery offers the freshest in baked goods, yes – the elves work through the night. Our line of bakery goods includes Artisan breads, Danish pastries, scones, muffins, cookies, turnovers, pinwheels, croissants, buns, and our famous cinnamon rolls. Our rolls are huge, and almost big enough to share – but we don’t recommend it. Our most popular items are our Ciabatta bread, dill pickle buns and cinnamon rolls. All of our products are prepared and baked in my home, yes – I have a large kitchen. In the fall and winter, I also teach ‘Baking Classes’ at my home.
I spent nearly 5 years as a bakery foreman supervising a crew of 8. This ‘scratch’ bakery, served 800 people three times a day. That is a lot of bread, buns and sweets. Did I mention it was a bakery at a Federal Prison and the crew was inmates? Interesting experience.
Stop by and see us at the market!
We have been growing Minnesota native perennials since 1998. The selections include both forbs and grasses in pots ranging from quarts to the larger 2 gallon. Over the years we have also added several other non-native species. Our goal is to provide an outlet for customers who want to maintain a selection of native species to help in promoting the natural world of birds, insects and other animal life.
