Wow, this makes me sad; seeing another place bite the dust! I definitely loved Eva Ruth’s Bakery in Middletown, RI when I went back “home” to see family! They had a full bakery and did a few sandwiches too.
Some of you probably remember me writing about my visit a couple of years ago. I was so happy to be able to support this awesome place when I went back to visit family. Not only did they make great GF; they also made great Dairy Free items. This was an awesome safe place for me when I was there 2 years ago. I wish I could have visited more often but I have only taken 1 vacation in the past 5 years. The website is down; this is what Ruth had to say on their Facebook page:
Dear Valued Customers of EvaRuth’s Speciality Bakery:
After seven years of business, the bakery will be closing permanently. This is a very difficult decision for me to make since my love for the bakery, its mission, and of course for you as customers remains undiminished. Concerns however related to my health and revenue make this decision best – while hoping that EvaRuth’s product line might again become available to you. The store’s final days and hours are:
Friday, April 21st 9:00am – 3:00pm and Saturday April 22nd 9am – the sale of all prepared foods and frozen bakery products. First come – first served. Once again, I thank you for your dedicated patronage over the years and hope the best of health for each of you!
Lesson: Please support the Gluten Free & Allergy Free places who’s sole existence is dedicated to keeping you and/or your child safe when eating out!
Thank you Ruth for sacrifice on behalf of the Celiac and Food Allergy Community!
