Renee and Don Gorman, who owned and operated the stylish health-food restaurant Puffins in Pikesville, are opening a gluten-free bakery in Hampden.
Update: Harmony Bakery opened on April 21. For information call 410-235-3870 or go to the bakery's Facebook page.
Harmony Bakery will sell gluten-free baked goods in addition to savory food fare like tarts, soups and flat breads. It will operate principally as a carryout, Renee Gorman said, but they have approval from the city to put a few tables on the sidewalk outside their building at 3446 Chestnut Avenue, which was formerly home to Inside Out Designs.
The targeted opening date is April 1, Don Gorman said.
Since selling Puffins in 1996, the Gormans have become a presence at the weekly 32nd Street Farmers Market in Hampden and collaborated with Susan Weis-Bohlen on her Hampden eatery Breathe Bookstore and Cafe.
