Blackmarket Bakery, an Orange County establishment, has opened at 4686 30th St., just south of Adams Avenue.

The bakery debuted in Costa Mesa in 2012 and added another location in Santa Ana this year.

At a soft opening on the last week of September, founder Rachel Klemek, a pastry chef, and managing partner Alison Horn greeted invited guests with samples of sweet and savory delicacies that are offered on the menu.

The 3,000-square-foot San Diego location is still a work in progress, as the 1,500-square-foot patio was still being prepped and indoor seating was incomplete.


Savory items include “Eggywiches” sandwiches for breakfast, including this one called the Farmhouse with scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, bacon and ham on a brioche bun. (Photo by Ken Williams)

In addition to breads, cookies and cakes, Blackmarket will offer “Eggywiches” for breakfast, Dark Horse coffee options, and grilled sandwiches for lunch.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Call 619-641-0081 or visit
