Mariposa Baking CompanyTop Bakeries in Oakland

Mariposa Baking Company‘s first few years were spent in a shared kitchen in West Berkeley, California. Their batches grew too big for those ovens, so in 2006 they built a new place to rest their wings, a committed gluten-free kitchen in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland, California. This certified green bakery also houses its first retail bakeshop. In 2009, they fluttered to a second home, a Kiosk in San Francisco’s Ferry Building.

Mariposa’s presence in this food purveyors’ paradise allowed them to bring daily bread and handmade treats to San Francisco’s gluten-free community. Two and a half years later, they migrated South in the Ferry Building and started Mariposa’s SF Bakeshop, est. 2012.

“I love Arizmendi. With several of these co-op bakeries sprinkled around the Bay Area as well as other thin veggie options like Sliver and Cheeseboard, the Lakeshore location is my favorite. Their vegetarian pizzas are so consistently delicious regardless of the toppings and even better, their breakfast pizza on Sunday mornings make my weekend infinitely better.” – George D.
