Baked goods are a favorite treat of people all over the world, and there are plenty of places to get them. So why are local bakeries so good? Here are some things that a local bakery can do that large chains just can’t compete with.
A local bakery probably sources their ingredients locally or even produces them in-house. This could be the ingredients for fruit-filled pastries or even dairy products.
This lack of over-processed ingredients improves the taste and health factors of pastries. Their baked goods are also made fresh that day instead of being frozen for an unknown amount of time.
These bakeries also have the resources to create bakes that fit the community they are in. Their daily interactions with customers allow them to add things to their menu as requested. You can be sure that your voice will be heard if you speak to the owner of a small, local bakery. They are able to specialize bakes for dietary needs on a case-by-case basis.
Consider supporting your local bakery this week by stopping in for coffee and a pastry. As long as you support them, they will support you for all your baked goods needs.
