Sarah Murphy is the owner of Vinal Bakery. She grew up in New Hampshire on a stretch of beautiful, rolling hills near Lake Sunapee. She spent many years sugaring in the winter, picking apples in the fall, and plucking ripe tomatoes in the late summer. She learned to bake with her grandmother. They’d spend days around the warm stove in the kitchen. She learned to love the effort that went into creating beautiful, delicious pastries and other baked goods.

While her path was diverse, her mind was always on the goal to open her own shop to honor the past memories of her loving grandmother and the mornings spent in front of a warm oven. She opened Vinal Bakery as an homage to her New England roots. She opened it to create a place of creativity, community, and food!

As a longtime resident of Somerville, she was very excited to find a location to build her bakery. To be in such a vibrant city such as Somerville and an evolving area like Union Square, was truly a dream for her.

She looks forward to making this the best bakery around and is so excited to meet all of you!
