The newest addition to downtown Santa Ana’s Artists Village, Blackmarket Bakery on Broadway, will be celebrating its Grand Opening with an all-day event and fundraiser on Saturday, February 6th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Chef/Owner Rachel Klemek will donate 15% of her sales during the event to nearby nonprofit, Isaiah House, which supplies more than 3,000 meals each week to those in need within the community. Located inside the historic Santora Building, will be sampling her award-winning, made-from-scratch baked goods – including signature cookies, mousse cakes, tarts and confections – give away cakes in an old-fashioned “Cake Walk,” serve samples of their “on tap” Craft Beer & Hard Cider and feature the band Echo Sparks (beginning at 6:30 p.m.) as she invites the community to experience her unique offerings.
“As we settle into our new Santa Ana home and get to know the community, we see a diverse demographic that really shapes this city’s downtown area. In a very short time, we have become invested in ensuring the continued positive growth of this incredible area,” explained Chef Rachel, who had her sights set on downtown Santa Ana for a few years. “We want to support those doing good in the community and Isaiah House is an organization in our neighborhood that is making a big impact by serving those who need it the most, from providing food to clothes and other necessities to those facing homelessness. Weekly, we donate bread and pastries to the great team and Isaiah House. We hope that folks will come out to celebrate our grand opening and support a worthy local group in the process.”
