We all come across fun and unique food-related holidays to celebrate our favorite eats throughout the year. Just this month, we’ve experienced National Cherry Popover Day, National Macadamia Nut Day, National Chocolate Milkshake Day, National Cream-Filled Donut Day, and many more.
This Thursday, September 28, we will have an all-new, never-before-celebrated holiday: National Bakery Day. You may think of baking solely in terms of whipping up cupcakes, decorating cakes, or deep-frying delicious donuts, but baking encompasses so much more. Think about your favorite breads that make up the sandwiches you savor or of the bagels you might grab on your way to work in the morning. These tasty items are baked and should be celebrated, too!
What’s more is there are so many original St. Louis bakeries that deserve to be celebrated, along with the delectable culinary concoctions they create. McArthur’s, for example, has been serving St. Louis since 1956 and has been expanding our services and locations while sticking to our traditions and roots. Here are just a few old-time bakeries in your very own backyard that you can celebrate on Thursday (aside from us, of course!):
*Federhofer’s Bakery on Gravois Road
*Lubeley’s Bakery & Deli in Shrewsbury. Be sure to stop by sometime on Thursday because they will sadly be closing their doors permanently on Saturday, September 30.
*Knodel’s Bakery in West Florissant
* Missouri Baking Company located near The Hill
*Old Town Donut Shop in St. Peters
Make sure to celebrate our city’s independent and original bakeries on National Bakery Day this Thursday! Stop into any of McArthur’s locations and any of the fine establishments mentioned above, and purchase a few choice pastries for you and your friends, family, or coworkers to enjoy. McArthur’s is even giving out cake slices to our first 200 patrons in each of our 5 locations! We hope to see you Thursday!
