San Francisco, CA
Our start was simple. Patti Furey Crane, Mariposa's founder, craved high-quality sweets while pregnant with her first child. Finding few options at the time, she set to baking them herself. And so, in 2004, Mariposa was hatched. Mariposa's mission – create wholesome, hand-crafted food using the finest natural ingredients. Mariposa’s first few years were spent in a shared kitchen in West Berkeley, California. Our batches grew too big for those ovens, so in 2006 we built a new place to rest our wings –a dedicated gluten-free kitchen in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland, California. In 2009, we fluttered to a second home: a Kiosk in San Francisco's Ferry Building. Mariposa’s presence in this food purveyors’ paradise enabled us to bring daily bread and hand-crafted treats to San Francisco’s gluten-free community. We have a passion for: the baked goods we make, the creative journey we’re on, and the communities we serve.
