Lots of bread, brownies and baked goodies will be broken from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday during the Village Baker’s grand-opening celebration. It will feature free samples of baked goods, Michigan cheeses, organic milk, handmade granola, milk shakes and beverages.

Larger portions of select baked goods will be priced at $1 during the event.

“We want everyone to be able to afford to take something home or to gift,” Rathbun said.

Rankin has been baking bread since 1995. He owned Ed’s Breads on Leonard Street in Grand Rapids until 2003. His homemade granola — with rolled oats, cranberries, pecans, almonds, honey, maple syrup and extra virgin olive oil — has been a huge hit, according to Rathbun. The granola is served as a breakfast item, with 100-percent organic Michigan-made milk and fresh fruit.
