A New Bakery for Jackson Ward

Nettie's Naturally Bakery & Cafe will open next month.

Posted By on Thu, Jun 25, 2015 at 11:15 AM

We’ve been waiting impatiently for Nettie’s Naturally Bakery and Café to open in Jackson Ward and owner Lynette Potgieter is planning to do just that next month. Potgieter began baking organic, gluten-free — and most importantly — low-glycemic goods about two years ago and sells them in places like the Daily Kitchen & Bar, Shield’s Market, Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market and Whole Foods.

A bakery and café is a logical extension of her wholesale bakery business,Nettie’s Naturally. Health is Potgieter’s primary focus. Diabetes runs in her family, and she wanted to offer bakery items made with coconut-based sugar, an ingredient that doesn’t spike blood sugar the way that other sweeteners do. Using other organically produced ingredients and keeping the recipes gluten-free also made sense.

Check back next week: We’ll sit down with Potgieter and talk more in depth about the things she makes and plans for her café, plus a photo preview of the space.
