Union Depot Annual Holiday Bake Sale

  • Union Depot 225 9th St E St Paul, MN, 55101 United States (map)

From gluten-free cupcakes to honey-infused chocolate confections, Union Depot will offer visitors a sweet day of shopping when its Waiting Room is transformed into the Fourth Annual Holiday Bake Sale on Saturday, December 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The popular event will showcase top bakeries from around the Twin Cities, hostess and holiday gift vendors, and a sneak peek at Lowertown Pop, a Minnesota-made event that will take place at Union Depot April 15, 2017. 

“Each year, proceeds from ticket sales at the signature Bake Sale are donated to a local community group. This year, Merrick Community Services Food Shelf is the beneficiary of attendee generosity,” said Rafael E. Ortega, chairman, Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority. Guests will enjoy baking and cooking demonstrations by participating chefs - scheduled every 30 minutes - as well as musical performances. There will also be on-stage demos with Lowertown Pop vendors Hagen & Oats showing their wood cutting craft techniques and American Craftsmen demonstrating bending wood.
