Hi, I'm new to the board (although I've been dealing with my son's food allergies for a few years - he's 7) and I was wondering if anyone is aware of any peanut/nut free bakeries in Massachusetts (or even So. New Hampshire). Thanks.

Sorry I don't have any nut-free bakeries to recommend, but I just thought I'd jump in to say welcome, and if you do hear of any nut-free bakeries, my 7 year old PA Massachusetts son would love to know about them, too!
Best wishes,
P.S. Where in MA are you?

Bakeries are a place that I NEVER consider to be safe.
Is there such a thing as a nut free bakery?

I've never been to one myself, but I've read about a few, can't remember where though.

I am in Massachusetts too and have never heard of any. I did hear of one in Bar Harbor, Maine ( I know really far) but I am not sure of the name of it.

Wouldn't that be a wonderful thing to have a nut-free bakery?!!!
Not that I would ever even consider Hostess a bakery, but I got a wonderful response (in writing) from them regarding their nut-free bakery facility in Biddeford, ME. This facility distributes throughout New England I believe. If the stamped code on the package starts with 087 it means it was produced in this facility. This is true of Wonder, Nissen, and Hostess products. When I am in a pinch and don't have time to bake, I buy my daughter Hostess cupcakes or donuts that have this code. We also sometimes use the hamburger and hot dog rolls and some of the other breads that have this stamp. Just be careful though because there are many products that do *not* have this code (such as Twinkies, etc.).

I found a nut free bakery by accident this summer in Brookline. I don't remember the name, but it's a kosher bakery on Harvard street near Beacon. They told me that the baker there is allergic to nuts so they don't use them in anything.

I'll be visiting Brookline this Thanksgiving. If you can remember the name, could you post it? My son would just be in ecstasy to walk into a bakery and order whatever he wanted!

Thanks for the info. That would be great. I searched online and found 2 bakeries on Harvard Street not far from Beacon, Creative Pastries and Kupel's Bakery. There's also a Brueggers and a Dunkin's, but I wouldn't really call them bakeries. I'll call both of them to see, but if one of them rings a bell, write back.
