Making Dough 

Side Dishes: Burlington bakery expands

Panadero Bakery has long been a Burlington favorite. New owners Ryan and Jessica Bunce hope they’ll be able to make the Old North End business, known for its fruit tarts that always seem to sell out at the Burlington Farmers Market, even more successful.

This weekend, from November 12 to 14, the Bunces will host a grand reopening at which they’ll introduce what Jessica Bunce calls “plenty of new goodies” to customers. Longtime fans needn’t worry — Bunce promises, “We’re not going to get rid of any of the old favorites.”

In the two weeks since the couple took ownership from David Cannizzaro and Lindsay Klepper, they’ve already made some strides. Pizza has joined savory croissants among the lunch options, though Bunce describes the cheeseless slices’ dough as textured more like bread than traditional pizza. Savory tarts will debut this week in flavors including caramelized onion and spinach. In the coming year, Bunce says, Panadero will add a full lunch menu. To make the small bakery more of a mealtime destination, the Bunces are adding seating and Wi-Fi.

For those who don’t have time to make it up North Winooski, Panadero products are now available at Healthy Living. The market’s bakery has begun carrying breads such as seven grain and cinnamon-raisin swirl, as well as biscotti and Panadero’s famous fruit tarts.

How do you feel about eating GMO foods?

  • I don't understand what the fuss is about. I eat them and I'm fine.
  • As long as they're FDA-approved, I don't mind consuming them.
  • GMOs are in most staple foods, so I'm resigned to eating them.
  • I wish they were labeled so I could make informed choices about when to eat them.
  • I'm concerned about potential long-term health effects of consuming GMOs, which haven't yet been studied.
