- Does anyone know if the Bonaparte Bread in Savage has re-opened? It closed in January, but Anonymous left a comment a week ago saying that the Savage location had re-opened, maybe under new ownership and management. Who knows the details? Who knows if I can buy bread there?
- Is it true that Gorman Produce Farm in Laurel won't open a retail stand this summer? Anonymous commented on an old post that Gorman will sell just to members of its CSA. I can understand the move. Farming seems hard enough. Farming and running a store seems overwhelming. But I loved stopped there for produce. I hope they'll at least do pick-your-own strawberries. I have a new farm hand for this spring!
- Adam reported that the Caffe Benne bakeries has opened on Rte 40 in Ellicott City. Has anyone been? This is one of the string of Korean bakeries like Shilla and Bon Appetit. I wrote a few months ago that Rte 40 is becoming Gangnam style literally -- that neighborhood has multiple bakeries on many blocks. He also reports that the neighboring pizza shop turned out to be a Papa Murphey's Take and Bake.
- Latest word in the new Bon Fresco Sandwich Bakery is that it will open in April, reports Linh. This is in the Lakeview Office Park.
