Welcome to Fall 2017!

Whether you are visiting this website because of Yelp, or Divine Munchies on YouTube, or photos you've seen on Facebook (Green Heart Bakery) or Instagram (#alaineshrewsbury), or the classified ad in Desert Leaf -- welcome!  Tucson is such a diverse and different area than Southern California that I do many different things here -- and that can be confusing for new customers.

No, we do not have a "brick and mortar" location.  Licensed to work out of the banquet kitchen at La Mariposa on Houghton, we sell at the farmers market and make special orders.

Yes, we mail muffins, cookies, brownies, apricot date bars, via USPS Priority Mail.

Muffins flavors include:  Carrot Cake, Pumpkin Cranberry or Pecan, Blueberry Oat Bran, Lemon Raspberry, Banana Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Oat Bran, Blueberry Blue Corn, Orange Pineapple w/Coffee Cake Topping.  Please call 520-954-2409 to place an order with me.

Yes, every Sunday, Green Heart is at Rillito Park farmers market (4502 N. 1st Ave  85718) with a wide variety of bakery goods AND savory:  entrees, a hearty soup, several kinds of sandwiches, and sides. (Scroll down; the 2 previous posts list sample menus from Sundays in July). We change to winter hours on Sunday October 8th, which are 9 am to 1 pm.

If you are looking to add more healthy food to your weekly menu, you can sample a selection by coming to the farmers market and trying a few items.  You may know exactly what you'd like me to make for you, or you may not - but this will give us a starting point.  Yes, I make special orders and/or customize dishes for the requirements/preferences of customers. For example, some customers order their own pan of whole-foods plant-based* GF lasagna - and without red bell peppers.  (*This means no oil, no salt in the preparation.)

The bride chose gorgeous flowers for her cake.

Yes, I make birthday cakes, special occasion cakes, and wedding cakes.  My specialty is cakes with "clean" ingredients (hence, no fondant), and adapting to special diets/food allergies.  Call me to discuss your dietary requirements, and I can make you a special cake or dessert.

Yes, I deliver an assortment of savory dishes (and a few desserts) to New Life Health Center, 4841 E. Speedway, on Monday evenings; also, on some Thursday mornings. You can follow Green Heart Bakery on Facebook; I always post a photo when I deliver there, listing some of the offerings.

Yes, a good assortment of Green Heart's cookies, muffins, brownies and apricot date bars can be found at Crossroads Coffee, 8898 E. Tanque Verde Rd, 85749.

Also on Facebook, you will see that I post to remind when Green Heart will be at UA Mall farmers market for Wednesday lunchtime.  It's always a pleasure to see the students, staff and faculty there!

We hope to see you soon :-).  Good health to you!
