Jonnie's Bakery

Get your gluten-free donuts here! Formerly known as just Elder Valley Farm, Jonnie's Bakery has gone ahead and taken the baked goods duties so that Elder Valley could focus on its coffee creations. After separating from Elder Valley Farm, Jonnie's took the leap to focus on exclusively creating gluten-free and vegan bakery items that are fun and full of flavor. This bakery operates out of its commercial kitchen in Banbury Place, but you can find their fresh-baked goods at the Eau Claire Farmer's Market throughout the summer alongside Elder Valley Farm. Get a taste of their gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free cake donuts this summer, and pair them with an iced coffee while browsing the farmers market!
