Originally from the la Vendéenne region on the Atlantic coast of France, Jean Marc Riant has been baking French-style bread for many years now. He started apprenticing to be a cuisinier/boulanger when he was 15, and has been perfecting his craft ever since.
Boulangerie la Vendéenne produces a large variety of organic artisanal breads and pastries. Baguettes, sourdough, rye, spelt, 7 grain, apricot & honey and more can be found year-round at the Halifax Farmers’ Market, Pete’s Frootique, Italian Market, Super Natural, Planet Organic, Salt Shaker and Mariposa. From mid-spring until late fall, Boulangerie la Vendéenne can be found at farmers’ markets in Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Annapolis Royal, Hubbards and Wolfville.
