Bakery on Main

With crunchy and satisfying gluten-free granola varieties like Cranberry Almond Maple, Organic Sprouted Maple Quinoa and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt, Bakery on Main® is sure to please any palate – not just those searching for gluten-free foods! This local partner has been baking up delicious offerings in Connecticut since 1992 and continues to hold the highest standards for quality and taste. Enjoy these whole grain granolas straight out of the bag, sprinkled on top of your favorite yogurt or even turned into a delicious cheesecake crust.


Grown in the center of the Vidalia® growing region in southeast Georgia, sweet and nutritious RealSweet® Vidalia® Onions are produced by family-owned Shuman Farms. Currently at their peak growing season, each onion is carefully hand-picked. Vidalia’s® are sweeter than traditional onions thanks to the sandy soils and rainfall received in this prime farming region. Enjoy them grilled on a burger, chopped on a salad or baked with chicken and peppers to add flavor and a punch of fiber and vitamin C.
