North Camden’s first new bakery in half a century is set to open at 9th and Pearl streets on Valentine’s Day.
A project of Respond, Inc., the retail operation will feature fresh bread and other baked goods -- including sugar-free selections -- prepared by graduates of the human services agency’s Culinary Arts Training Program.
Featured items will include an utterly fabulous confection (take my word for it) known as the “Camden Cookie.”
“The bakery is special, something different, and the community is really excited,” Respond executive director Wilbert Mitchell says. The for-profit business will create a dozen jobs.
