French Meadow Bakery is a privately held bakery located in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States that produces gluten-free, vegan, yeast-free and kosher parve foods. It is one of the longest running certified organic bakeries in the country.[1] The bakery is currently certified organic by the USDA and Quality Assurance International, certified Gluten-Free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization,[2] and certified Low Glycemic for Diabetics by the Glycemic Research Institute.[3][4]


French Meadow started when Lynn Gordon was teaching a cooking class and pondering a new recipe for bread that would accommodate her macrobiotic diet. The diet prohibited her from eating breads loaded with yeast and sugar. Thus, the idea for French Meadow Bakery was born. The bakery was opened in 1985 and since then has offered products that only use natural ingredients and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The bakery was acquired by Rich Products Corporation in July 2006.
