Lucy’s Pastry Palace, March Market Programs and Sunset at the Market Series

Lucy’s Pastry Palace Grand Opening at the 2nd Street Market

Lucy’s Pastry Palace now has a permanent booth at the 2nd Street Market. They will celebrate their grand opening this Saturday, March 16.

Introduced to authentic Armenian pastries since childhood, Owner Tamara Cerovcevic passion for baking led her to search for a way to share authentic Armenian and international recipes she gathered from family and friends across her travels. In searching for an opportunity, she found 2nd Street Market and fell in love with the welcoming management, staff, vendors, and amazing customers.

When Tamara’s granddaughter Lucy was three years old, she told her Baba, “When I grow up, I will have a palace, we will all live in it together, and you will bake for me.” When she decided to start her bakery in 2021, Tamara named it Lucy’s Pastry Palace, paving the path to her granddaughter’s dream.

Tamara now offers extensive authentic international gourmet pastries, including gluten-friendly and vegan products at the 2nd Street Market. She loves the challenge of being introduced to ethnic pastries from around the world. Tamara’s baking takes you back to your childhood memories and the nostalgic feeling from your grandma’s delicious pastries. Lucy’s Pastry Palace is at the west end of the Market across from the Market office.
