Lemkos Bakery Lemkos Bakery is a woman-owned and operated vegan bakery.

We offer an expanding menu of delicious baked goods inspired by the Ukrainian-American heritage of our founder and head baker!

Operating as usual

06/25/2020

I deeply apologize for the delayed social media presence - as we all know things have been very overwhelming lately to say the least!

As most of you probably know, Lemkos made the extremely difficult decision to shut down operations on March 14th, 2020.

I made that decision - not because of lack of sales or customer support during the virus - but because I realized that the vision I had for Lemkos from the beginning was quickly slipping away from me.

What I had intended to do with Lemkos was to build a bakery that thrived on community support and environmental sustainability. As time went by and big opportunities we’re given to us it became clear that I was blinded by opportunity and unintentionally weaning away from my original vision.

Our intention in January 2020 was to start to shift back to the original plan after there we’re some changes in the bakery’s wholesale customer base.

Then March came around, and with the way the climate of the country was looking, I realized that there was going to be a very long and very financially draining road ahead.

I decided that with everything that we had already conquered (Getting into a national grocer, building up our online sales and delivery service, finding a sustainable packaging procedure) that it was a good time to take a much needed break, after 3 years of non-stop work, and take more time to re-evaluate my plan.

Hours and hours of extremely difficult and heartbreaking conversations later, I decided that this year will not be the time to revive Lemkos, that it would be best for my mental health and I to take a step back and figure out what I need to do to become the best baker and business owner I can be.

I am truly grieving the loss of Lemkos, but I know this will not be the end for me and my intention to build a great business that fits around my perspective and personal world views.

That being said, I can not leave this post without saying a HUGE thank you to EVERYONE who has supported us - from my weekly customers at the Union Street Farmers Market, to other local business owners who gave me my first chance (Ward's Supermarket ), to the people who ordered a cake from me every year for their birthday. You all gave me so much hope and faith in my community. Words can not describe how full my heart was every time I got an order from a regular. I am so grateful that you all gave me the opportunity to serve you.

I will miss all of you deeply. This is not the end, it is just the end for now. Thank you SO much for all of your support.

Love always,οΏ½

Satchel's Pizza, Electric Ramen, Pop-a-Top General Store, Pop-a-Top Corner Store, SweetBerries Eatery and Frozen Custard, Opus Coffee, Wunderland Custom Tattooing ...

If you or someone you know is working to provide solutions for the current crisis please check out this free resource! Created by our partner, Henry!

To our supporters, clients, and friends,

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our team is now committing ourselves to doing what we can to help those working to bring forward solutions to this crisis.

We all read and hear every day about the health care professionals, scientists, military servicewomen and servicemen, and many others, who are racing against time to provide essential services of all kinds to the rest of us. Many of these providers are part of government, but not all.

Just as small business is the backbone of the American economy, so too, in this massive crisis, are thousands of individuals and small groups stepping up and providing more localized services to communities in need. These include educators, religious leaders, community organizers, and many others. But even volunteers require more than people power to accomplish their good deeds – they need money to cover unavoidable costs.

We want to help all of these individuals and organizations working on the front lines of this crisis provide their essential services.

That’s why we, who are fundraising professionals and software developers, operating from home in self-quarantine, are ready to provide the following specific support to those efforts, by doing what we do best, facilitating the donation of funds for the heroes taking care of the rest of us:

1) Providing a free crowdfunding platform for COVID-19 solutions (https://covid19.justfunding.org/home)
2) Offering, for free, our professional fundraising and digital marketing services, to help bring those solutions to the attention of donors who are also on the sidelines, and are eager to contribute financial support

What we’re asking for now, in turn, is your help to bring our fundraising resources to the attention of those who might benefit from them, and then, for those of you who can afford it, to consider supporting solutions for those on the front lines - in your community, online, or however else you can.

Thank you for your support and consideration.

Kindly,
Henry Perlstein
Executive Director

Our Working Food Kitchens are a starting point for food entrepreneurs to get their business off the ground without the heavy added start-up expense; a barrier many people come up against in this industry. This opportunity is one that did not always exist until we built this commercial space, provided coaching and time to incubate, and were able to do it at affordable rates. Since opening, we have seen a demand that has far exceeded anything we expected reminding us that space and opportunity are sometimes all we need. As we continue to work to support establishing more local food businesses, here’s what’s currently happening:

We have production of value-added products from farms such as Biogera, LLC, unique tea blends from Formosa Tea, locally made tempeh from The Tempeh Shop, fresh smoothies and guacamole from Deli Fresh Blessings and Hand baked pies with purpose from PiesAbilities.

Food trucks like Soup to Nuts Food Truck, Eim Thai, Arepa Burger Food Truck, Mayflower Cellars, Ash & Ember : Wood Fired Co., and Tommy Knockers bless the streets with good grub.

Vegan baked goods from Lemkos Bakery, Brio Cold Brew Coffee and Raw Vigor are on shelves in stores all over Gainesville.

Catering options from Daniel's Dining, Chef JJ Creations, and Spanglish are all available for parties, events, and private functions.

These hard-working entrepreneurs have been growing and expanding their businesses and we look forward to seeing some of them established in their own space in our community in the future. If you want to become a supporter of Working Food visit our website to find out more.

https://workingfood.org/about-us/
At Working Food we have a few women-owned businesses- Lemkos Bakery, Eim Thai, Mayflower Cellars that we are excited to have in our community (and as a shameless plug Working Food is also women-owned and operated).

In the food and restaurant industry, women are not usually in ownership positions; we hope to help change that. It is well-documented that women-owned businesses are under-funded and wind up working twice as hard to get half as much ahead.

Are you interested in supporting the launch of more women into food-based entrepreneurship? Your donation to Working Food can help more women gain entry into entrepreneurship and be instrumental in their business growth and expansion.

December 3rd is Giving Tuesday globally. You can visit workingfood.org to learn more about us and to donate.

My teenage daughter just had your vegan carrot cake and said it was "so delicious!"

(I've never seen her get this excited over dessert before.)

Awesome job Lemkos Bakery!!!
I’m supposed to pick up a cake and I cannot find an address or a phone number anywhere online. Are you located at Working Food??
I was at Lucky’s yesterday guiding my vibrant child through the store trying to find an ingredient for a recipe while hunting for a sweet treat for her. Looking at many offerings, I continued to look for a better price-point (*cough* something cheap to placate child).

And what do I find but what can only be described as a heavenly gluten/ grain-free (ALMOND flour ppl!) chocolate chip sandwich from Lemkos Bakery owned and operated by the lovely Kat Wasula.

Forget that I love this woman, this little unassuming morsel of heaven was just.......HEAVEN.

Gville folks, make your life better and track these treats down!! Immediately. Now. What are you waiting for? Your happiness depends on this!

They sell at Lucky’s and Wards. Kat is also at the farmer’s market on Wednesdays.

For Orlando and Jacksonville folks, rumor has it they may be extending there reach to your neighborhood. You’re welcome.
Mark you calendars September 14th 1-5pm!
An afternoon of tea and baked goods with Formosa and Lemkos Bakery two of our entrepreneurs incubating at Working Food.
We're also stocked up(though it's dwindling fast) on Secret Garden Bakery items, and our new treats from Lemkos Bakery!!!!
I was at Ward's and saw a Lemkos Lavender sandwich cookie and thought, "WTH? A lavender cookie?" Out of curiosity I bought one and thought, "It will probably be interesting but not a favorite and sort of weird...." Well, I got home and said, "I am going to just try a bite and save it for later even if I like it...." I took one bite and I was transported to Heaven!!! I was amazed! I loved the cookie! I ate the whole thing right then and there and will go back to Ward's for more!!!! Curse you, Lemkos!!!!! I don't need more sweets that I love!!!!!!!! LOL
