our (virtual) Bakery
2010, Marc's Double Oven was a locally-owned bakery on Mackinac
Island, Michigan, specializing in morning pastries, homemade cinnamon
rolls, and fresh coffee.
in response to changing circumstances, the retail bakery operation
has been closed for the 2017 season. Marc’s Double Oven will
soon become a “virtual” bakery with a small licensed
physical bake house on the island and online product sales only.
This transition will be completed on or before the Fourth of July
Marc’s Double Oven is in the process of conversion to a Michigan
L3C company so that it can leverage its expertise and production
capabilities to assist in local efforts to reduce food insecurity
in Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula. When the changeover
from retail to online is complete, Marc’s Double Oven will
begin its 1:1 initiative: Every online purchase of baked goods will
be matched item-for-item and donated fresh to area agencies and
entities devoted to food distribution and childhood hunger mitigation.
proprietor and head baker is a 40-year Island resident and former
Island school teacher who started making homemade canine treats
for the neighborhood dogs over a decade ago. What began as a hobby
soon evolved into "people" food - breads, cookies, cinnamon
rolls - and in 2009 his bakery became a popular downtown business.
You can read more about him in the Mackinac
Journal (October 2011).
