The inevitable holiday baked goods extravaganza can leave those with dietary restrictions high and dry, but Sweet Elizabeth’s Organics brings good news: On Sept. 11, owner Elizabeth Durham moved and expanded her gluten-free, vegan bakery into the former The Market and Paleo Progressive spot, which shares a shopping center with Mountain Mama Natural Foods. She’s more than tripled her floor space, going from 900 to over 3,000 square feet, allowing her to expand production both for on-site and web sales.

“I didn’t expect to go this big so fast,” she says. “I wasn’t sure that I would be able to handle it. But it’s been such a blessing, honestly.”

In addition to more kitchen space, she’s gained dining room seating, which she didn’t have at her old location. That’s allowed her to add breakfast and lunch offerings alongside her baked goods, both available all day. She offers waffles and avocado-spinach-tomato breakfast sandwiches on a roll, plain or garlic-rosemary, as breakfast options. For lunch, she offers build-your-own salad bowls, a soup of the week and, most recently, she’s added pizzas.

“I want people to feel good after they eat,” she says. “You shouldn’t feel bad after you eat. You should feel rejuvenated and full of energy.”
Her baked offerings haven’t changed much, though she’s added more flavors for her existing items. So far, her cinnamon rolls, fruit turnovers and donuts are top sellers, she says.

As for her old location, that's been filled by Karen's Corner Bakery.
