A woman standing in front of a motorcycle with a tray of cookies is the logo for Mostly Myrtle’s, the purveyor of gluten-free baked goods at the Nyack Famers’ Market. The image is an homage to the grandmother of Mostly Myrtle’s owner and and head baker, Debra Sadowsky. In order to keep up with the public’s growing appetite for gluten-free products, the former Occupational Therapist bakes up to 600 muffins a week for markets throughout the region. Let’s take a spin on Mostly Myrtle’s metaphoric motorcycle to a grandmother’s kitchen in Kansas City to see where Debra’s journey to gluten-free baking began.
