Honest Foods Company
Smaller batches mean better bread baked with quality ingredients (and lots of love). Irinia K., founder of Honest Foods Company, believes bread is the soul of every meal and it shows in her breads and scones. What started out as a small hobby baking bread for her son has turned into a full-fledged business with a growing following at the Tuesday Uptown and Sunday City Park Markets. Originally from Ukraine and Belarus, Irina and Vlad came to the U.S. when they were just teenagers. With family and friends still in Ukraine, Honest is currently donating their net proceeds to aid groups to support their community back home. Check out their Instagram for upcoming fundraising events and ways you can support them as they navigate this challenging time. And don’t forget to head over to their booth and buy a loaf of Jewish rye or challah to up your holiday table offerings and show them support!
