Fresh bread and homemade spreads in Edmonton

Edmonton is home to some great bakeries that produce delicious, fresh loaves that have renewed my love of breakfast. What’s better than a slice of toast with jam, honey or peanut butter? I’ll let you in on my favourite spreads in the city.

Bonton Bakery

8720 149 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5R 1B6

The Bon Ton Bakery creates European pastries and breads, and my top picks are the whole wheat and rustic loaves. These hearty breads will fill you up and taste great, too. Try the organic carrot pumpkin seed or the cranberry raisin nut. Bon Ton has a nice selection of jams and jellies, as well.

Artistic Bake Shop Ltd

6820 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6H 2L6

Established in 1966, the Artistic Bake Shop brings traditional German baking to Edmonton. The bakery specializes in Bavarian pretzels, sourdough dark ryes, schinkenbrot bread and pastries. They have an intriguing list of seasonal specialties, such as purple wheat bread with cranberries and walnuts, focaccia and much more.


11958 104 Ave Nw, Edmonton, AB T5K 0G6

Evoolution sells jams from the local non-profit organization, Fruits of Sherbrooke, which makes use of fruit that otherwise would go to waste. The organization transforms and ‘rescues’ rhubarb, cherries, strawberries, pears, saskatoons and apples from homeowners, organic markets and fruit vendors with excess fruit. The preserves are also retailed at a number of other locations and farmers’ markets in the city.

City Market Downtown

Edmonton, AB T5J 0Z9

Based on North Cooking Lake, Beanstalk Honey is a local business that sells honey at farmers’ markets. Tracey sells several different varietals, including dandelion, clover, alfalfa-clover, thistle and wildflower. You can find her at the Downtown Farmers’ Market, held outdoors on 104 Street Promenade in summer months and inside City Hall the rest of the year.

South Common Farmers' Market

151 Karl Clark Rd NW, Edmonton, AB T6N 1H5

Ashlee Roger owns Better than Your Nan’s and sells her jams, nut butters, crackers and muesli at the Southwest Edmonton Farmers’ Market. She avoids using gelatin and pectin in her jams, instead thickening with chia seeds. Her products are naturally sweetened with agave and maple syrup. Check out her booth for some delicious homemade nut butters, too.
