I ~At Virtue Natural Bakery taste and nutrition go hand in hand. We are a small batch bakery creating products that are not just delicious, but with healthy ingredients you can feel good about! Find us exclusively at Vancouver farmers markets, year round.
Real. Fresh. Gluten-free.
Each recipe is chosen and crafted by certified natural chef and holistic nutritionist, Chef Lisa Virtue. Our pantry includes high-quality ingredients with many local and organic items (see food tags at the market for organics). We do not use any xanthan gum, opting for more wholesome binders like flax, chia, agar-agar and psyllium.
In our kitchen, we don’t use any gluten containing flour (from wheat, barley or rye), and instead focus on a variety of other grains like buckwheat, brown rice and sweet rice, Canadian GF oats (glyphosate free!), millet and sorghum, along with almond, coconut and tapioca flours and non-GMO potato starch. We grind some of our whole-grain flour and seeds in house, and have plenty of grain-free, dairy-free, egg-free and low-sugar options, including items sweetened with Canadian honey or maple syrup. Our flourless three seed baguettes are low-carb and high in fibre from freshly milled flaxseeds.
All of our dark chocolate products and cocoa powder are fair-trade from Belgium. We choose sustainable paper packaging with compostable bags, recyclable cardboard boxes and biodegradable muffin liners and parchment paper.
Find us this summer at Trout Lake and Kitsilano farmers markets, with an array of delectable, all natural treats, breakfast items and breads. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate for nut allergies. Please inquire about any other allergies or dietary needs.
Thank you and see you soon!
