In 1992, after the Los Angeles riots, Homeboy Bakery opened in Boyle Heights. The first of Homeboy’s social enterprises, the Bakery started as a training ground for aspising bakers. Supplying fresh breads, pastries, and specialty goods to the walk-up counter at Homegirl Cafe, Homeboy Farmer’s Markets and restaurants throughout Los Angeles, the Bakery is a place where former enemies bake bread side by side, learning the art and science of preparing breads, pastries, cakes and much more.
