Bennison’s Bakery opened in Evanston, Illinois in 1937. Today, it is owned by the Downer family, represented by three generations: Guy, Jory and Guy II.
Jory, a Certified Master Baker, supervises the baking. Bennison’s is one of the few bakeries in the country to employ two bakers with that distinction. You can find croissants, scones, baguettes, and artisanal breads produced by hand with organic ingredients at the Bennison’s tent at Green City Market, along with breakfast pastries topped with local, seasonal fruit.
