“Baking is how you start kids cooking in the kitchen.”
"If baking is any labor at all, it's a labor of love. A love that gets passed from generation to generation."
“Cooking is at once child's play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love.”
Maryland Bakes! is a Health Department approved kitchen that offers memberships to food artists to produce their products. In addition to providing your clients with a place to meet and pick up orders, we offer dry and cold storage, use of our Consultation/Tasting Room, and retail opportunities.

We're looking for food artists such as bread makers, cake bakers, food truck vendors, farmers market vendors, and anyone who is serious about growing their food business.
What Maryland Bakes! is NOT: We're not suited for those who are not interested in following health department regulations or are looking for a one-time event use kitchen, bake sales, etc. We're designed to help local, licensed food artists who are ready to grow their business or home-based businesses ready to take the next step to become licensed and insured and expand their business outside of Maryland's Cottage Food Law.
