Kevin Massey is the cheerful and chatty Dubliner behind The Old Dublin Bakery. The business started near the end of 2015 when Kevin was on parental leave – he needed an outlet for his creativity and passion for baking. The first venue was the CLB Market, and today ‘the cinnamon buns’ are a Farmers Market staple. Kevin incorporates techniques from his culinary arts degree with traditions from the original Old Dublin bakery (in Dublin, Ireland, where he’s from).

Kevin puts his love, skill, passion and creativity into every pastry and baked good he makes. He selects high quality ingredients and he bakes everything from scratch, using his own recipes. “I discovered over the years that the secret for good, tasteful dish is to use good, natural ingredients. Good ingredients and good technique speak for themselves”. Kevin also wakes up at 4 am on Fridays to bring freshly baked products to the markets for the delight of his customers.

Old Dublin Bakery offers a wide range of delicious baked goods: Chocolate cookies, scones, éclairs, pastries, cinnamon buns, cakes, squares and bars, fruit tarts, pies, cheese cakes, seasonal cakes, fruitcakes and much more. Kevin uses seasonal ingredients to bake his pastries. Each season there are new and different products alongside the all time best sellers. He also bakes especially for the customer favourites at each market.

Sustainability and community are important to Kevin. He buys as local as is possible and feasible for him and his small business. He supports local vendors from the Farmers Market (like the Jam Lady) and he also uses recyclable paper bags and boxes for his products. Kevin also gives away gift purchase to fundraisers, and local charities.

Kevin loves baking and people love what he bakes. Old Dublin Bakery has had such a great turnout that he now had to change the schedule of his regular job to keep up with the demand. Ahead, he envisions an Old Dublin Bakery mobile unit so that he can deliver his baked goods right to the customer.
