Old Salem Bake Shop Opens in Marketplace Mall
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (JUNE 28, 2018) – Old Salem Museums & Gardens recently opened the Old Salem Bake Shop as a result of the tremendous success and demand for Moravian baked goods from the historic and popular C. Winkler Bakery. The Old Salem Bake Shop is located in Marketplace Mall on Peters Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem. It includes in-house bakery production and a distribution facility as well as a retail sales area. This replaces a previous, non-public bakery production and distribution facility on Poplar Street near Old Salem.
Winkler Bakery in Old Salem’s historic district will continue to make baked goods on site as it did when it opened in 1800. Winkler Bakery, where visitors can watch the bakers at work and purchase fresh-baked products, is the most visited site in Old Salem. The Old Salem Bake Shop will produce a variety of baked items, which will help supplement the items for sale in Winkler Bakery and at other retail outlets within the historic district.
The Old Salem Bake Shop also will offer a variety of single-serve bakery items as well as soft drinks. Retail hours at Old Salem’s Marketplace Mall location are currently Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will be expanding its hours of operation in the future.
“As part of our commitment to hold close to our core mission within the historic district, this expanded bakery production will enable us to keep up with the incredible demand for all of our tasty treats purchased at the famous Winkler bakery on Main Street,” Old Salem Museums & Gardens President and CEO Frank Vagnone said.
