Schoolhouse Gluten Free Gourmet is launching an e-commerce site with online shipping across Canada.

With the launch of the site on May 25, the Martin's Point-based business is also introducing vegan donuts and "best ever" hamburger buns.

The baker reported in a press release that they tested the new products at Halifax's Seaport Market last month and both have been pre-sold out for the last four weeks.

Schoolhouse opened in 2009 when the partners in the business bought a rural schoolhouse in Martin's Point and following the diagnosis of one of the partners with Celiac disease, which led them to begin making gluten-free goods.

Over the past nine years the business has gone from a two-person start-up to a commercial baking operating with seven staff, creating 18 products available in three farmers' markets and supplied to 55 independent retail vendors, restaurants and cafes in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

Schoolhouse's new website is located at www.schoolhouseglutenfreegourmet.com
