Ingrid Hansen – Figg’s Ordinary

Figg’s Ordinary began in 2015 as a small stand in the Chestertown Farmers’ Market. Figg’s founder Ingrid Hansen began experimenting with gluten-free baking after her youngest daughter developed a sensitivity to gluten and struggled to find gluten-free products that were at once fresh, delicious, and made with high-quality ingredients. After experimenting for a few years, Ingrid had developed delicious, healthy gluten-free recipes, and wondered whether Eastern Shore residents also had a hunger for these kinds of foods. Figg’s success at the Farmers’ Market gave proof of a local hunger for healthier food options on the Eastern Shore. Ingrid had always dreamed ofcreating a space in Chestertown for people to gather, and with Figg’s success at the Farmers’ Market, she soon began searching for a location to make Figg’s into a brick-and-mortar café.

Figg’s Ordinary has become a fixture of downtown Chestertown. It’s a great place to get a coffee, a gluten-free pastry, or lunch.
