I don’t know if you guys know this, but I’m sort of a chocolate chip cookie connoisseur… If you ask me who has the best chocolate chip cookies in the Orange County area, I can name off a top five… In my top five is definitely Black Market Bakery. Lucky me, when we moved to Costa Mesa a few years ago they are basically in my backyard! We are walking distance to The Camp and Black Market Bakery happens to be there!! The perfect excuse to walk and get a chocolate chip cookie! At least I’m walking!!!
Since discovering Black Market Bakery I have also began using them for our clients and events! They do it all over there! So I decided I had to share this gem on the blog and find out more about what makes this quirky bakery so amazing from owner Rachel Klemek. Keep reading for an interview with her and the amazing photos by Corrie Lynn Photo! I love when we share our favorite local spots, and this one is definitely up there!!!
How and when did Black Market Bakery begin?
I love everything, but I love our tarts a bit extra! They are each their own simple, elegant and tasty statement. And the croissants! And the pretzels… and the cookies! (sorry,,,)Tell us about what you offer for special events…
Our pastry chefs are working on more complex decorated shortbread and some new spring tarts and cakes! It’s always fun to incorporate seasonal flavors into our pastries and baked goods.
I do!! Then I spend time on the treadmill… I’ve been known to skip a meal and eat dessert, but I will not confirm or deny this!Thanks for sharing Rachel! Isn’t she the cutest?! Make sure you stop into Black Market Bakery the next time your craving a delicious treat, and when aren’t you really?!
