In 2006 my wife, Joni Koopman, and I bought the old Sherbrooke Bakery. It was originally owned by a Ukrainian baker in the 1940s, when it was on the NE side of the traffic circle. In 1961, a Dutch couple named Peter and Josephine Huppelschoten bought the bakery. In 1986, they moved it to its present location. In 2001 they sold the business to John Vrieselaar and his two sisters Jacqueline and Elizabeth.
My team and I have been happily baking here since 2006. We filled up the bread rack and pastry showcase with wholesome Dutch baked goods. We restocked the shelves with Dutch and other European imports. Then, in a fitting display of “truth-in-advertising,” we re-named the bakery “Dutch Delicious.”
Come visit us and enjoy a little piece of Europe right here in Edmonton.
