Pi day is coming! Celebrate our favorite collection of digits with a pie from the Bakery! New spring desserts are on the way, too.
Will you join us in celebrating Pi day on 3/14? We'll be baking a variety of pies to mark the occasion! Spring is just around the corner (we hope), and we'll be gleefully welcoming it with some fresh desserts. Look for our Lemon Raspberry bars, Pretzel Party bars, and an expansion of our breakfast menu to include cinnamon buns and house-made vegan fruit turnovers, available in cherry, blueberry, raspberry, and apple!
As some of you have noticed, our in-house bread program has gone on hiatus. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we ask that you please continue to be patient while we assess the situation and decide what our next step will be. In the meantime, please check out any number of the carefully chosen delicious breads we bring in to both stores!

|GreenStar's Bakery Expands Wheat-Free Offerings|
By Kristie Snyder,
You know a diet is popular when a Google search returns over 12 million results, as it does for "gluten free diet." Compare that with "vegan diet," which turns up a paltry 2.6 million. It's clear that people are increasingly avoiding wheat products and gluten, the stretchy protein found in wheat and many of its relatives. Many who avoid gluten have been diagnosed with celiac disease, in which gluten consumption can cause intestinal inflammation and damage the lining of the intestines. Others experience wheat allergies or intolerances, which can lead to a host of symptoms.
Ten years ago, finding gluten- or wheat-free baked goods could be a real challenge, and finding ones that tasted good proved even more difficult. But a trip to GreenStar's bakery case today yields over two dozen delicious wheat- or gluten-free options.
