Know Your Baker

Neighbourhood bakers play a hugely positive role in their communities. One that goes far beyond basic nourishment. Their stories deserve to be heard.

The Rise Up! Podcast is a celebration of bakers, the bakeries they create and the people they serve.

Join Mark Dyck as he talks with bakers and bakery owners from across North America and around the world. Hear about their struggles and triumphs and learn about the satisfaction that feeding a community can provide.

Episode #37 of Rise Up! ended with Peter Claybaker, owner of Marquette Baking Company, dealing with downsizing his bakery and eliminating his retail service.  Since then there have been some major changes in Marquette and Peter is in a much better place.

In this episode, Peter shares his news and tells the story of how brittle the business model of small bakeries can become.  But it's also a story of the enduring attraction of the local bakery and how help can come unexpectedly.
