Become a Community Baker

Just need a space to prepare your baked goods? Consider becoming a community baker! Whether baking for one hundred or one thousand, community bakers have access to the TBSP space and equipment. And with additional staff support, these bakers also receive assistance in improving their technical skills. For some, the community baker position may serve as a step towards the baker in residence position. For others, it may simply serve as the beginning of a lasting partnership with TBSP.


All community bakers must be over the age of eighteen as well as ServSafe certified by time of application.


After a cleaning deposit fee of $250, community bakers have access to The Bakery Society of Pittsburgh’s space during hours of operations. During weeks in which bakers have used the space they will be charged a fee of $12 per hour. Unlike the baker-in-residence program, baking supplies are not provided for community bakers. However, with an additional payment, TBSP will provide these items. Lastly, if interested, community bakers have the access to similar skill development as bakers-in-residence, at their own expense.
