For all of you who had loved Deb's Cookie Jar at IB's Farmers Market only to see it disappear this last summer, we have great news for you, Deb's Cookie Jar will soon be opening a Store Front Business at the corner of Palm Avenue and 10th Street.
Deb Berry was a big favorite at Imperial Beach's Farmers Market for 2014 and had picked up
a large following of customers. For the larger customers she often had to cook from her licensed home bakery to fill her orders so the natural progression was to a storefront. Unfortunately, her first choice for a location didn't work out.
The initially frustration of not being able to make her first location work was replaced with extreme excitement as Deb and her husband Steve found a perfect location at Palm and 10th. Not only did the Store Front location have parking off the busy Palm Avenue but it came with a nice oven and full kitchen that was extremely helpful. It had other items that she would have had to go out and look for.
Soon we will be enjoying Deb's wonderful cookies again as well as her tasty cakes, pies and brownies. Since she plans on opening at 5am she will be offering up breakfast and coffee for those who have to be in early for work.
Deb is hoping to have the bakery open for business by March 1st. However, since she has to wait for inspections and government agencies it could be a bit longer.
One thing for sure, it won't be long until my taste buds will be savoring Deb's magic again. That will be a day I and all of Deb's followers will be anxiously awaiting.
