Allergy Aware Bakeries in Connecticut

2/6/17 - By Ally Noel

There are so many great bakeries in every corner of Connecticut. But, like many of you, my daughter’s school is a nut free facility. For everyone’s safety, if we want to send in treats for celebrations and birthdays, they have to be store bought and in their original sealed containers. For really special celebrations, like birthdays and holidays, I like to bring in something a little more festive than a box of Oreo Cookies. Thankfully, Connecticut has a growing list of bakeries that can provide a fresh-baked treat that everyone can enjoy.

Here is a list of nut free, gluten free, dairy free, and vegan bakeries in the Nutmeg State.  Some of these bakeries are certified allergen-free, others have gluten and dairy free options for order. Use this list as your go-to guide for all your allergen-free entertaining needs. Make sure you check out their websites and menus before you visit. Feel free to add your favorite allergy free bakery in the comment section.
