Shop Small Day 190: From Scratch Marketplace

Starting your own bakery, or any food company, can be overwhelming. Many start out as home-based businesses, until they outgrow their home kitchen.  The next step, though, renting a commercial kitchen can be expensive.   Unless, you join From Scratch Marketplace

This licensed commercial kitchen provides the opportunity for local gourmet shops to create, sell, and grow.

What does that mean for us? One shop carrying an assortment of treats!

There’s a huge variety of vendors utilizing the From Scratch Market, so you can find everything from cupcakes, to biscotti, to pasta sauces. Even wedding cakes and organic jams.

Sounds incredible, right?! It’s been so popular that they’ve had to expand, so unfortunately you’re going to have to wait a couple of weeks to visit.

According to their Facebook page, they’re supposed to reopen early in August. But, I’d call or double check facebook before stopping by since their website doesn’t have the information.

Or, you can follow my page since I can’t wait for them to open again!

Many of their vendors also sell at local farmers markets or specialty stores, so some of the names may be familiar.

What would you create in your own gourmet shop?
