The story behind our cakes

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

We pride ourselves on the quality of our cakes and know they’re second to none! But why?

They’re filled with quality ingredients, from our exclusive cake mix that you won’t find in any other market to our signature buttercream frosting made with a special vanilla extract. Our cakes are made in small batches resulting in fresher products. And all our cakes are handmade, right down to measuring ingredients by hand to ensure you always get the perfect cake.

The story behind our salad bars

Our salad bars focus on fresh, unique and healthy foods! We use the freshest ingredients with a wide variety of greens, whole grains, raw and steamed veggies, nutritional boosts and more.

Most people think of a salad as lettuce, a little shredded carrots and dressing. Not me! A good salad is satisfying and can pack so many great flavors and textures. I put all kinds of delicious ingredients in my salad, like roasted vegetables, grains, nuts, dried fruit and even top it off with a boost or two.

The story behind our Bachman’s partnership

Lunds and Byerly’s note: Bachman’s, a local, family-owned company, has been our valued partner since 1968, when our very first Byerly’s store opened in Golden Valley.

In 1968, Bachman’s set forth on a path that was to revolutionize the floral industry – marketing cut flowers via Bachman’s European Flower Markets. Ralph Bachman and Don Byerly, Sr. partnered to open the first European Flower Market at Byerly’s in Golden Valley on April 1968. The kiosk occupied a 500 square-foot area and sold inexpensive cut flowers and plants.

“If people did not love one another, I really don't see what use there would be in having any spring.”
― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Spring is here and it’s time to reconnect with all those you love! You know – all those neighbors, friends and family hibernating during the extreme cold of the winter months.

The hope of spring and all the new life coming forth offers so much inspiration for gatherings big and small. We have a few ideas for your next spring get-together!

Enjoy spring’s first flowers: pansies

While we wait to get our hands truly dirty, pansy bowls are the perfect option to start embracing spring’s pending arrival because they’re not afraid of a little cold!



Grown locally, they’re hearty and can go outdoors now. Of course, if there’s an unexpected dramatic drop below about 25 degrees (not that uncommon for a Minnesota spring), move them inside for a while. Ultimately, this beautiful plant offers great color with minimal care, which is another bonus.
