Willamette Valley Fruit Co.
Though they got their start in 1999 as a local berry processor, Willamette Valley Fruit Company is renowned for their luscious pies. Still deeply connected with fruit and berry farmers up and down the valley, they use only the best all-natural ingredients in their scratch-baked pies, which are available year-round in our freezer case. We’ve worked closely with them to create the best possible pumpkin and pecan pies made with only the best ingredients for your holiday table. Look for them in our grab and go case.
Gluten Free Gem
Named after Anne Miller and her daughters Emma (left) and Greta (right), Gluten Free Gem provides us with high-quality gluten-free baked goods. They started Gluten-Free Gem after Greta was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2005.
Behind Two Tarts are two sisters who in addition to having their own retail storefront make cookies for all our stores. Sample some of our favorites like the Seasonal Macaroons, Pecan Tassies, Cocoa Nib Stars and their Cappucino Creams to name a few. Stop by the pastry counter and get your fix.
Chickie Massa, a baker at heart, knew that she could produce a better product than the store-bought cookies she tried. Lucky for us, she rose to the challenge. Bluebird Bakers makes cookies that are out of the ordinary. What’s their secret? It may have something to do with the high-quality ingredients, including humanely raised, rBST-free milk, butter and eggs. Or maybe it’s the fact that they’re rolled by hand, scratch-baked in small batches and delivered to our stores fresh. All we know is that if you haven’t tasted Bluebird’s cookies, you’re in for a treat. And if you have, then you know exactly what we’re talking about.
