The CENTER BAKERY is a woman owned boutique, commercial bakery specializing in artisan breads and pastries. I began baking and cooking as a child with my dad while living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Though I majored in vocal and choral performance at San Jose State University my passion has always been food. Raising our children I wanted to provide them with healthy breads and snacks so I began making bread and pastries from scratch. Family tradition was December 1st the bakefest began making dozens of cookies and candies.
I started the wholesale business in 2002 selling brownies, cookies and cakes. Outgrowing the off-site kitchen, I purchased a local bakery learning the art of making bagels and danish and managing the daily grind of running a retail bakery and cafe. In 2012 I closed the retail site focusing on a commercial, wholesale bakery.
The CENTER BAKERY offers many services to our customers - pastry baskets, seasonal specialties, as well as breads and pastries. I pride on being able to customize services for our customers, willing to try and experiment with new ideas meeting the demands of an ever- changing marketing climate. I use the freshest ingredients with little or no preservatives and when available fruits and vegetables from local farmers.
During the farmer's market season Center Bakery is a vendor at Sturbridge Farmers Market in Sturbridge and at the Timberyard Brewery Winter Market in East Brookfield, as well a providing services to corporate and local businesses in the Worcester area.
My mission is to provide you with the best homemade breads and pastries using only the finest ingredients baked on the premises.
