On the agenda for the Fishtown zoning committee meeting a couple of weeks ago was a proposal for the establishment of a new bakery at 1255 Marlborough St., formerly a corner store. This corner store, fortunately, had relatively tasteful signage, in contrast to some other stores we’ve seen of late.
While we weren’t able to get ourselves to the meeting, we were able to catch the drift of the proposal from a lengthy conversation on Fishtown.us. Near neighbors were hoping for a full service bakery, specifically a retail outlet from Metropolitan, which does wholesale baking just a few blocks away. Instead, it seems they’ll be getting a more sweets-styled bakery from Zynthia Martinez, according to this story from the Northeast Times Star.
