We're talking locally made cakes, pies, pastries and more from folks like Dovetail Bakery and Bliss Cupcakes and our own in-house pastry chefs. Hurry — your sweet tooth is calling!

A Slice of History

Even though it doesn’t have three tiers or a crazy fondant, our moist, intensely flavorful Banana Cake is so beloved that some people order it for their weddings. But we can’t take credit for the recipe. When legendary local grocery chain Kienow’s closed its store in Raleigh Hills, we moved in to open our very first location—and our new customers weren’t shy about how much they missed our predecessor’s banana cake. Never one to let a request go unanswered, our co-founder Brian Rohter took matters into his own hands and made an old-fashioned trade: in exchange for the famous, coveted banana cake recipe, we made a minor amendment to the lease. The rest, as they say, is history—and thanks to Brian, the Kienow’s Market legacy lives on at every one of our stores. 

 

 

Honey Mama

Portland, OR

Christy Goldsby wanted to redefine fudge, with a vision to celebrate health and high-quality, whole ingredients. In 2012, she gave nod to her creative family of cooks, bakers and gardeners when she founded Honey Mama's-purely delicious fudge made from raw cocoa, raw coconut oil, sprouted almonds, Himalayan pink salt and vanilla. The result is super satisfying and is soy, dairy, gluten and grain-free. The bottom line? This is paleo pastry at its finest.

Gluten Free Gem

Portland, OR

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.  

Willamette Valley Pie Co.

Willamette Valley

 

The Roth family founded the Willamette Valley Fruit Company with the belief that our region grows some of the best fruit in the world. Lucky for us, they jumped at the opportuity to purchase the little pie company down the road in 2001 and have been making luscious scratch-baked pies as the Willamette Valley Pie Company ever since. They're deeply connected to the source of their ingredients—small farmers up and down the valley dedicated to growing the best fruit possible. That's why we've chosen them to bake our private label pies like pumpkin, pecan (corn syrup-free!), apple cranberry crunch and marionberry—the perfect addition to your holiday table.

Two Tarts

Portland, OR

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. 

Bluebird Bakers

Portland, OR

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.
