About Us

In 1978, twenty years before terms like “sustainability” and “buy local” became commonplace, Jim LaPrete
set out to find a way in which he could support his family without compromising his passions for being
outdoors and experimenting in the kitchen. Today, his daughter Kim—under the guidance of her mother,
along with her husband and soon her own children—bakes with her father’s passion, using his original
old-fashioned recipes, which were considered old-fashioned when he introduced them. Baking nightly and with
only a forty-five minute drive into New York City,we take pleasure in providing the freshest bread and baked
goods possible to our customers. We at BakerÂ’s Bounty are very proud to be one of the original
Greenmarket vendors, and we consider ourselves privileged to be part of such an essential institution.
