Open Since 1861, Trefzger’s Bakery Is The Oldest And One Of The Best In Central Illinois

As Central Illinois’ oldest bakery, Trefzger’s was established in 1861 by German immigrant Simon Trefzger shortly after moving to Peoria. That is when he began baking bread for Civil War soldiers in Glen Oak Park. The bakery remained in the Trefzger family for 132 years before it was sold to a new family, the Huebners, who have continued to bake high quality traditional and contemporary goods. It is truly one of the best (if not the best) bakeries in Central Illinois.
