After spending 18 years as a chef, Henry Willis, along with his partner Natalie Normand, decided to open a bakery at a farm in Prince Edward County. Willis' goal is to produce high-quality naturally leavened breads, which allow for greater nutrition and better digestibility. He regularly treks to Toronto farmer's markets to sell a variety of his freshly baked loaves.
Why We Love Them: Willis' line of bread is popular among those who are worried about digestive issues due to the lack of fast-rising yeasts used - and they're tasty to boot. Standouts include the kalamata olive and cider raising grain loaves.
Where to Buy: You can load up on humble bread loaves at the Evergreen Brick Works market, and Wellington Farmers Market.
