Who is Well Bred?

Well Bred is a bakery without a storefront specializing in slow-breads and sweet & savoury pastries, including rich, butter-only viennoiserie. You can find out us throughout the year at the Duncan Farmers Market on Vancouver Island.

Bakery owners Mark Primmer and Shannon Peck take an odd duck approach to the baking breads and pastries from their smallholding in Chemainus, BC.

Well Bred was founded in the spring of 2011, and occupies a 300 square foot converted art studio on the owner's property cohabited by a PhD scholared cat named Hoban, a neighbouring farm rescue and an occasional rogue raccoon.

It is certainly the only bakery in Canada that features a fine taxidermy collection.
