Tiny Travels: Local Baked Goods for Pickup or Delivery in McMinnville RIGHT NOW

Scrumptious gluten-free carrot cake from Flour & Fern Bakery

Comfort me with cinnamon rolls. Or brownies. Or maybe just one great, single loaf. In an age when so many restaurants and food purveyors have had to close shop temporarily, McMinnville’s artisan bakeries are still at it, finding ways to get you some creature comforts in tough times. 

FLOUR & FERN, Mac Market

McMinnville’s newest bakery, the all gluten-free Flour & Fern shop at Mac Market, moved rapidly from pickup only to delivery only and is still pulling GF goodies from the oven while most of McMinnville is in quarantine. All of its deliveries get dropped off directly on doorsteps. “Cinnamon rolls are hard to beat!” says owner Mary Wenrich. “But if you want some bread to pair with a meal or snack on, I suggest the Focaccia. And if you’re looking for dessert, brownies and carmelitas (oats, pecans, chocolate and coconut caramel) are always popular.”
