Bakery - Made From Scratch - Mary's Market - Cafe & Bakery


Rockford’s Original

For over 40 years we’ve been using Aunt Mary’s original tried-and-true recipes. When you choose one of our fresh-baked cakes or desserts for your special event, we want it to be as special as your occasion — and we’re sure they’ll wow your guests.


We’ve got classic cakes and fresh-fruit tortes, but our favorite secret ingredient is your imagination. That’s right — we’re happy to work with you on a custom creation.

Always Fresh, Never Frozen

Whether it’s our New York-style bagels or a custom-designed dessert or an assortment of muffins for the office kitchen, our baking philosophy hasn’t wavered. Everything we bake is made with fresh, never-frozen ingredients because our longtime bakers take baking for you and your guests as seriously as baking for their own friends and family.


Whenever possible, we source natural and organic ingredients from local farms and suppliers.
