The Co-op Bakery is ready to delight with traditional bakery treats, beautiful custom creations, and heavenly tasting allergen-free sweets and savories. Our talented bakers love a challenge, so dream big!
In the course of one year, the Co-op's bakery team cracks open 150,000 eggs and uses 9,360 pounds of butter. In 2016, they baked 129,155 coveted cookies and 20,197 scrumptious scones! Clearly, most Co-op shoppers (and staff) enjoy a tasty, freshly baked treat!
People are going to indulge, and when they do they can feel good about choosing baked goods made from scratch right here at the Co-op.
We strive to offer choices that are good for you, the farmers, the local economy, and the environment.
With quality in mind, our ingredients are locally sourced and organic whenever possible, and are 100 percent free of artificial colors, flavors, and GMOs. Our three espresso bars are stocked with hand-crafted syrups and specialty drinks from the bakery as well, so you can feel good about enjoying that latte.
We make everything from scratch! We crack every egg, hand-roll every brioche … we even make our own graham crumbs. We take pride in the fact that we make every recipe by hand, every day, because freshness matters.
We care about what’s important to our customers and stay informed about food trends so that we can deliver what people really want. Catering to allergens and offering alternative sweeteners is our specialty. Looking for something that’s gluten-free, vegan, soy-free, and alternatively sweetened? Try our Guilt-Free Chocolate Cake! Feeling extra sinful? Don’t worry, we make plenty of treats with local organic dairy products and organic cane sugar as well. No matter what you’re looking for, we can fulfill nearly any heart’s desire with a custom order.
Co-op bakers are fluent in the language of love … and chocolate! Treat your valentine to something truly memorable this year. Vegan, gluten-free, and other
Valentine’s Day is coming up, which is quite festive here in the bakery. Don’t miss your opportunity to try our seasonal treats, made especially for this love-inspired holiday. Some of our favorites include the luscious Two Hearts Cheesecake, the floral-sweet balance of Vanilla Rose Cupcakes, and the absolutely divine Bleeding Hearts with two layers of moist chocolate cake filled with house-made raspberry sauce from local berries, and topped with a layer of chocolate ganache. Be still my heart!
If it’s simply chocolate you crave, you’ll swoon over our decadent chocolate truffles. Made with quality, organic, Fair Trade Certified chocolate and coconut oil, these treats are so smooth and creamy they will melt in your mouth. And they’re vegan, too! (Just don’t tell your dairy-loving friend … they’ll never know it’s missing.)
Lisalyn frosts and decorates Chocolate Decadent cakes. Stop by the Co-op Bakery building and peek through the windows to see our busy crew at work. The 16 talented staff are proud of their impressive 71 years of combined bakery experience.
What really makes our bakery so special, though, is the people. There’s something magical about the crew behind the scenes.
Full of pride, laughter, whimsy, and hard work, our synergy brings love and life to every baked good.
So when you choose the Co-op bakery you can feel good about knowing that it was carefully prepared, packaged, and delivered by hand, with a lot of happiness and a lot of heart.
