Knights Ferry News for October 24, 2012

POSTED October 24, 2012 10:19 a.m.

Denise Crom has undertaken a new project - Bloomingcamp’s Bakery. She has been leasing the building to make pies for their Barn in Escalon and decided to open the bake shop three days a week to catch the local and recreation trade. Bloomingcamp’s October Fest was their opening. The bakery will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The Barn will continue to carry her baked goods (fresh and frozen) also. Besides pies, they have turnovers, dumplings, caramel apples, and other goodies. Stop by and check it out!
