As the weather grows sharper, darker and colder, I find myself seeking out things that are softer, warmer and more cozy. The rhythm of the seasons isn’t always enjoyable at first, but as the leaves crunch under my feet and pumpkins adorn my front porch, I find myself enjoying the fall.

Part of my quest for comforting, familiar things around this time of year is frequenting bakeries in the Frederick area. I believe that our local area here has some of the best hidden gems in the state, some of which might even be hidden to many Frederick residents themselves. Certainly, when talking with out-of-town friends, Frederick is not known for having bakeries, and that should change in a hurry.
