Buttery Baking House Expands With A New Brick-And-Mortar Establishment

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.”
