WILLIAMSBURG-For roughly four years, Claudia Glazier has been operating her popular pastry business Buttery Baking House as a vendor at the Williamsburg Farmers Market. On October 11, she announced plans to expand her business and open a bake shop in Petersburg.

Since she began her business, Glazier has been working out of her home kitchen and driving more than an hour each Saturday to sell her baked goods at the Williamsburg Farmers Market. Patrons often wait in long lines at the market to purchase her treats, which include breads, cruffins, tarts, cookies, and other pastries.  Glazier recently decided to take the leap and open a brick-and-mortar bakery.

“I set my fears a side and I signed a lease for what is going to be the Buttery Baking House new home,” she posted on social media. She thanked her loyal customers, team members, and husband for making it possible.

“This is an opportunity to keep evolving,” Glazier said.

Buttery Baking House will be located in Petersburg. Glazier said she hopes to open the shop in February 2022.

Buttery Baking House will also continue to be a vendor at Williamsburg Farmers Market. The market will close on December 18 for the season and reopen in the spring.

“I am already looking forward to being able to open for preorder service with more variety of deliciousness going your way for the next season,” said Glazier, adding “Another start is on the horizon. Small business, big dreams.”

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
