The Bakist, North Beach, MD
Location: 9132 Bay Avenue, North Beach, MD 20714
Open Sun-Sat 6 AM - 6 PM
Once settled in Maryland, the owner started working at the little bakery in town (then called Sweet Sue’s) and then spent the fall and winter baking from home and selling at events. The next summer she went back to the bakery with hopes I could figure out a way to buy it. She missed the bakery setting and the customer interaction. Flash forward a bit and as of January 2021, she was the new owner and rebranded to be “the bakist” after her blog.
They quickly outgrew their current location and have purchased a neighboring building to relocate the bakery and expand!
