Flour Chylde Bakery

Location: Novato, CA


Flour Chylde Bakery offers a wide variety of tortes and cakes that are made without the use of wheat, rye, barley or oat flours. They are not a gluten-free bakery, however, so due to the risk of cross-contamination, anyone with extreme sensitivities to gluten may want to consider the risk before purchasing their wheat-free items.

Flour Chylde also offers breads, cookies, tarts, and several other delicious treats made traditionally with the use of wheat.

Flour Chylde also has a cafe in Novato which is open seven days a week. For hours of operation and additional information, please visit their website.

Tasty Summer Cheese Pairings

As a self-described cheese fiend, I’m always looking for fun new ways to incorporate cheese into just about every minute of my day. While many of us may think of cheese mainly as a savory snack, pairing a subtly salty cheese with a basket of vine-ripened berries is actually one of my favorite things about summer. Both of MCM’s cheese vendors–Achadinha Cheese Company and Spring Hill Cheese–offer cheeses that pair deliciously with what’s in season right now, like blueberries from Rainbow …

Gluten-Free Options at MCM

With the ever-growing popularity of going gluten-free, the Mission Community Market is excited to be offering more and more wheat-free options for those with gluten sensitivities! In June, Flour Chylde Bakery joined MCM, bringing with them tortes and cakes made entirely without wheat, rye, barley, or oat flours.
