COMPANION BAKERY OPENS SECOND LOCATION AT NEW ABBOTT SQUARE MARKET PROJECT
Santa Cruz’s Companion Bakeshop, which works closely to support local farmer’s by using locally grown grains, and maintaining a consistent presence at farmer’s markets will soon have a high-profile location in Downtown Santa Cruz. Partnering with local coffee roaster Cat & Cloud, Companion’s new space at Abbott Square pairs the deliciousness of baked goods with the robust aroma of rich coffee, housed among other local artisan food vendors in a creative new venue. Taking a cue from San Pedro Square, the wildly successful community gathering space in San Jose, Abbott Square Market, supported by the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History and located at Front and Cooper Streets in the heart of Downtown Santa Cruz, is designed to be the food and cultural center of the town. Home to food vendors and a new bar concept called Front & Cooper, Abbott Square is designed to host a full schedule of entertainment events, including outdoor movies, children’s activities, trivia nights and live music.
