Vegan Doughnuts Keep Customers Coming to Peaceful Provisions in Dutchess

Pistachio, Chocolate Cookie Crumb, Strawberry, Maple Pecan at Peaceful Provisions

When Justine Soto and her sister Brittany formed Peaceful Provisions in 2015, there weren’t many places to get vegan sweets—especially vegan doughnuts—in and around Beacon. “We wanted to help fill that gap,” Soto says.

In the seven years since, this purveyor of specialty doughnuts and other baked goods has graduated from pop-up to brick-and-mortar. But it’s still a family-, minority- and women-owned business, with the same artisan ethos it’s always had. There are no premade mixes, icings or fillings in their doughnuts. Everything is made from scratch in small batches, using high-quality ingredients, Soto says.

Peaceful Provisions keeps it simple, and customers love them for it. They don’t take preorders and don’t have indoor seating; everything is takeout. The shop is open three days a week—Friday through Sunday—”from 8 a.m. to sold out.” And according to Soto, “sold out” usually happens quickly.  

“We like to keep things fresh and exciting, so the majority of our menu changes weekly, but you’ll always find our classic strawberry iced, cinnamon sugar twists, vanilla glazed twists and lemon poppy seed twists on the menu each week,” Soto says. (Past offerings include chocolate cookie crumb, lemon ricotta thyme, blueberry french toast and crème brûlée.) Cake doughnuts are available on Fridays, and fritters are available on Saturdays and Sundays. 

Peaceful Provisions tries to support as many other small businesses as they can, Soto says. They carry products from Dam Good English Muffins, Lagusta Luscious, Aya Hummus, Healing Home Foods, Cross Cut Coffee and Yeah Dawg, among other local and women-owned businesses. They also host pop-up events where vendors can sell their products and promote their business. So far they’ve hosted Dam Good English Muffins (sourdough English muffins), Full Moon Formaggio (artisanal nut cheeses), and Gab’s Veg Table (grab-and-go sandwiches and salads).
