The Baker


Melissa has been baking and creating in the kitchen for over 20 years.  Her passion for nutrition education was the inspiration behind the first Farmers Market bakery that she began in 2007.  With young children and a desire to share her commitment to proper balanced eating she created Tasty Bites Bakery, a whole grain bakery that specialized in small whole grain treats.  She sold her tasty treats at the Hillsboro farmers market and it was an instant hit! Melissa quickly realized the demand and lack of good tasting gluten free baked goods.  She talked with several Naturopathic Physicians, a few gluten intolerant friends, spent time researching and went back to the kitchen to mix up amazing gluten free cookies.  The result was and is incredibly delicious!

Fast forward three years later…a thriving farmers market business and a beginning wholesale business.  In early 2010 Melissa stumbled upon a wholesale bakery opportunity, Blue Moon Bakery, the bakery was aligned with her mission and a merge was underway.

Currently Melissa owns and operates Blue Moon Bakery and has integrated the two bakeries together, both operate under the Blue Moon name now.  The demand for Blue Moon’s tasty treats is growing and the Bakery is steadlity expanding.  Look for Blue Moon cookies and treats in over 30 locations in the Portland metro area.
