While we have a Vegan bakery- Bunners for which the community is so lucky, and which many people consider a luxury, there are many of us that are not so inclined to vegetarianism nor always super healthy treats or breads. We have lots of emtpy store fronts in the Junction even whole buildings, many of which would be great spaces for producing beautiful, naturally leavened whole-grain bread, delectable seasonal preserves, and granola for all of us (ok not this author) crunchy-granola types! say one with a milling room where we can purchase fresh milled flour own flour from local grower farms. Plus, a wood-fired brick oven that can also be fired with biomass briquettes manufactured from spent grain from one of the local micro brewery’s that are opening in the area, such as the Indie Ale House.
Operationally for success this would probably have to be a licensed commercial kitchen so the operator will be sell at farmers markets, wholesale to restaurants and grocery stores.
Please do come!
