About

The Baker’s Jar Story

The Baker’s Jar opened its doors in early 2014 with the goal of putting a new spin on classic desserts with uncompromising attention to taste and presentation.  Our priorities at the Baker’s Jar are straightforward: simplicity, sweetness and just the right amount of decadence.  Each one of our scrumptious cakes, pies, and puddings is perfectly portioned and elegantly packaged in its very own Mason jar.  The result, a menu full of carefully considered, beautifully baked treats, whose exposed layers leave your mouth watering and your mind stumped as to which flavor to choose (our advice: all of them). Free of frills and even crusts, the only thing between you and one of our delectable creations is, quite literally, the baker’s jar.

Feeling generous?  Indulge yourself and your whole crew.  Our jarred desserts make a unique and memorable spread that’ll taste even sweeter than it looks.

About The Owner

Hailing from New Haven, CT, a place defined by its culinary achievements (home to the first hamburger and #1 ranked pizza), Avery Goldman understands the importance of local food and its effect on a community.  After graduating from Earlham College, a small liberal arts school in rural Indiana, Avery chose Philadelphia as her new home for the small town feel of its diverse and distinctive neighborhoods.  She worked for several years in bakeries and catering companies around the city before choosing to focus on a place of her own in 2013.  It wasn’t until she had a firm idea of what her shop would offer, and why, that Avery broke ground on The Baker’s Jar-a neighborhood bakery serving up a variety of deserts with equal parts form and function.  Now, in 2014, Avery is ecstatic to bring her aesthetic and mouthwatering creations to the community she’s grown to love and the neighborhood she calls home.
