Farm Boy to Buy Rideau Bakery, Keep ‘Iconic’ Brand Alive

Grocery store chain Farm Boy says it will keep the Rideau Bakery’s products alive after reaching an agreement to purchase the Ottawa institution.

The nearly 90-year-old bakery abruptly closed its two locations over the Canada Day weekend, with co-owner Louis Kardish citing a combination of business and health reasons.

The closure left the capital’s Jewish community with limited options for bread and pastries, as they were the only certified kosher bakeries in Ottawa.
