– San Francisco’s Ferry Building announced today that Mariposa Baking Company will move from its kiosk location into one the coveted Marketplace nave shops. Mariposa’s mission is to create gluten-free baked goods that are indiscernible from the finest, high-caliber gluten-based products available. Owner Patti Furey Crane said that the new shop will offer a strictly gluten-free menu including freshly baked breads, pastries, pizzas and pastas along with breakfast and lunch menu items. Mariposa Baking Company devotees will be delighted to find notable favorites including their new rustic baguette, sour cream coffeecake, cream-filled cupcakes and their homemade, all vegetarian beet-loaf burger. They will also offer dessert classics like indulgent truffle brownies and almond biscotti made from an old Italian recipe that is hand-formed and, as tradition dictates, twice-baked.

Mariposa was originally created to provide the gluten-free community with bakery goods so delicious that even the non-gluten-free community would enjoy them. "So far so good," she says. "It seems that people love our baked goods - even those who do not need to eat gluten-free."

Crane went on to explain that the artisan bakery produces only small batches because, "it's our way of preserving the craft of artisan baking. We use organic where we can, including organic unrefined cane sugar, organic brown rice flour and organic conserves from neighboring Frog Hollow Farms. As a Certified Green Bakery many of our ingredients are also from local Bay Area purveyors," says Crane.

"When we first began developing the Ferry Building Marketplace Kiosks – we knew that some kiosk merchants would move onto large Marketplace shops." explained Ferry Building Senior Property Manager Jane Connors. "Operating a Ferry Building Kiosk is a great way for a local food artisan to experience seven day a week retail in a thriving and supportive community. We knew right away that Mariposa Baking Company had the potential to grow from the day they opened. They have great products, a devoted following, strong sales and are focused on using the finest local and artisan ingredients."

Mariposa Baking Company will move into Shop # 32 in the Marketplace. The shop currently houses Prather Ranch Meat Company – which is moving to a larger Ferry Building shop this Fall. The Mariposa Baking Company shop is expected to open in Late Fall of 2011. Just in time for Thanksgiving and gluten-free pumpkin pie!
