In 1995, Beth Veneto began creating Gingerbread Houses as a favor to some friends. She got the idea that gumdrops and penny candy were in her future.

Ginger Betty’s, located at 215 Samoset Ave. in Quincy, is the Original Gingerbread Bakery of the South Shore! We are dedicated to the “fine art of Ginger Bread baking and much more …”. Here you will find gingerbread men, women, children, and families. There are gingerbread houses and boxes of all types, all customizable for any occasion.

A visit to this unique shop is a treat for the young and the young at heart. “It’s a fun place,” says Beth Veneto. “It’s for kids and the kid in each of us”. There are balloons, a wooden gingerbread house, and lots of candy. You might even expect to see Hansel and Gretel close by.
