HOBOKEN, NJ — While some businesses have struggled to survive amid the coronavirus crisis, others are opening their doors in Hoboken, including several restaurants this month. And soon, a gluten free bakery will join them.

Annie and Em's Bakeshop will soon open on Third Street, said the owners, who didn't give an exact date. "Annie & Em’s Bakeshop is proud to offer gluten-free, freshly-baked snacks, sweet treats and breads," they wrote in an email this week.

In addition to all of the items always being gluten-free, a selection of vegan and dairy free items will also be available.

While their facility is not nut free, the owners they will offer some nut-free items for customers (Hoboken is already home to a nut-free coffee shop called Joey No Nuts).

According to the Mayo Clinic, "Gluten is found in grains, such as wheat, barley, rye, and a cross between wheat and rye called triticale. A gluten-free diet helps manage symptoms of celiac disease and other medical conditions associated with gluten. This type of diet also has gained popularity among people without gluten-related medical conditions."

The bakeshop was founded in 2018 by two sisters who grew up in New Jersey "with a serious sweet tooth!" they noted.

They've been selling their wares at farmers' markets around Central Jersey, but both live in Hoboken.

"For the past two years, Annie & Em’s Bakeshop’s sweet treats have been on sale at farmers’ and makers’ markets throughout Monmouth and Mercer County and through custom orders," they said. "We do not have an official opening date as of now, but are looking forward to opening our doors and sharing our signature gluten-free treats with the Hoboken community."

The address is 155 Third St., a block and a half west of Washington Street.
