This summer the Friends of Deering Oaks is running a bake sale in the park during the Saturday Farmers’ Market. Baked goods are sourced from Standard Baking, Bam Bam, Ten Ten Pié and C-Salt and the coffee is from CBD.
The bake sale has been getting a steady stream of customers the first couple weeks they’ve been in business from farmers and market customers. Bake sale manager Norine Kotts tells me the hope to soon have some patio furniture set-up at the Castle as well.
The City and Friends of Deering Oaks also hope that having the building open and in use may inspire some local food entrepreneur to lease the space and open a year-round cafe in the park.
