Brennan and The Victorian Bakery

The Victorian Bakery started as an at-home baking operation in 2004. Founder Maria Brennan was making healthy baked goods to bring to her son’s school, when interest in her products skyrocketed.

Brennan, whose interest in baking began as a young child in Dublin, Ireland, specializes in traditional Irish baked goods, such as scones, sourdough breads and other treats.

She started doing her own baking for family health reasons and applies the same philosophy to the baked goods she sells. Products from The Victorian Bakery do not contain artificial ingredients such as food colorings and are minimally processed. Brennan sources the majority of her ingredients from area companies and uses organic ingredients as often as possible.

The bakery sells products at its Kalamazoo location, as well as local grocery stores and farmers markets.

The Victorian Bakery will be providing the baked goods for this breakfast event!
