Heather and Ben Woodbury first opened Wicked Island Bakery in 2013. Since then, they have developed their business into a Nantucket favorite among both year-round residents and summer visitors. Ben Woodbury, the Executive Chef, trained at the French Culinary Institute in New York City and has experience working as a chef in many New York City restaurants. The opening of Wicked Island Bakery has allowed Ben a hugely creative opportunity: an opportunity to craft specialties for the small community of Nantucket. In fact, you may find yourself going to Wicked Island Bakery for a fresh Breakfast Sandy, and then discovering a new Truffle-Mushroom Brie Turnover that Ben created that morning. The name of the game for Ben and Heather Woodbury is to craft a menu at Wicked Island Bakery that always keeps the customer in mind. This kind of customer service and recipe creativity is what makes Wicked Island Bakery such a treat to visit, revisit; and then visit again.

In addition to selling the finest baked goods and savory favorites on Nantucket, Wicked Island Bakery has also made a point of supporting other local businesses and causes. You’re sure to find a fresh Moor’s End Farm egg on your Breakfast Sandy or a drop of golden, local honey baked into a handmade loaf of bread. Also, in remembrance of a beloved employee, proceeds from the purchase of a ‘Morning Gloria’ muffin at Wicked Island Bakery were directed to the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund; a local fund that helps defray the cost of transportation and lodging for patients who are required to travel off-island for cancer treatments. From mid-October 2018 through the end of the year, Wicked Island Bakery was able to donate $1,500 dollars to the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund. So, when you walk into Wicked Island Bakery you are not only supporting a local business; you are also supporting local families, farmers and friends.
