Focaccia Business Launches in Locust Point

| September 14, 2020 | 0 Comments

A new focaccia business called Solo Focaccia has launched out of a home in Locust Point. Solo sells focaccia on its website that can be picked up at different pop-up locations around the city.

Focaccia is an Italian flat bread cooked in olive oil. The owner of Solo Focaccia, who wishes to remain anonymous, has been baking focaccias for many years and grew up with an Italian mother and a father who loved baking bread. The owner has lived in South Baltimore since 1997.

The owner started baking a lot during the COVID-19 quarantine. Family and friends then encouraged the owner to do something with the skill.

The owner created an Instagram page (@solofocaccia), started posting pictures, and soon had the first pop-up at Southeastern Roastery in Locust Point. The owner has set up an online store to pre-sell focaccias for events.

Solo’s second pop-up will be this Sunday from 11am to 3pm at Whitehall Market in Hampden.

Solo’s focaccias include sea salt + rosemary, tomato, onion, olive, and potato. They cost $8 for a quarter sheet.

The owner says the focaccias are good to eat without any dips or toppings and go great with a cold beer. The owner also said they make a nice bread for a sandwich.

Solo will likely keep the direct-to-consumer model and the owner is “taking it one day at a time,” saying “2020 has taught us not to look to far ahead.”

The owner hopes to get a commercial kitchen workspace in the area in the future.
