Olde Hearth Bread Company, Central Florida’s original artisan bakery, is one of a dozen local merchants joining the East End Market – the highly anticipated food and cultural hub, set to open on October 25, in the Audubon Park Garden District.
This permanent retail location offers Olde Hearth Bread Company, the venue to join an eclectic group of food artisans, showcasing their creative and innovative talents, inspired by Central Florida’s local farmers. Through collaboration and creativity, the East End Market and its food artisans, will cultivate an appreciation for true sustenance, a better understanding of the food system, and fuel growth for Orlando’s dynamic local economy, creating an interactive hub for local food and culture.
Showcasing some of Central Florida’s top food entrepreneurs, tradespeople, artists, and chefs, the East End Market two-story structure will house a dozen merchants, including Olde Hearth Bread Company, a large event space, a demonstration kitchen, an incubator kitchen, offices, retail shops, a full-time, award-winning caterer and a world-class restaurant. The property will be landscaped with Florida-friendly varietals, as well as home to a working market garden.
Founded by owners Shannon and Janice Talty in 1998, Olde Hearth Bread Company serves high-quality artisan breads and pastries. Until the bakery’s debut in the East End Market, Olde Hearth Bread Company sold namely on a wholesale basis to the area’s finest hotels, restaurants and caterers. The opening of the bakery’s upscale 250-square-foot kiosk provides Olde Hearth Bread Company with the opportunity to offer their handcrafted goods to customers from a permanent storefront location.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to showcase our new retail location at the East End Market. We believe that this community food hub will be a vibrant addition to boost Central Florida’s local food economy. We look forward to interacting with our customers and providing them with the best handcrafted breads and pastries possible,” Shannon Talty, founder and president said.
