Farmers market favorite Julie Myrtille is finally opening its hotly anticipated, full-on bakery, Julie Myrtille Bakery, on Wednesday, December 4 at 1023 Springdale Road within the Springdale General complex in East Austin.
On deck at the bakery will, well, French pastries and dishes. There will be baked goods like croissants, canneles, brioche, pain Suisse (a baked good filled with pastry cream and chocolate chips), madeleines, tarts, jams, etc. Then there will be fuller dishes like quiches (Lorraine and vegetarian), crepes, sandwiches, and more. Drinks-wise, there will be coffee, tea, house-made lemonade, and Parisian hot chocolate.
Owner and pastry chef Julie Myrtille was recognized by the Academie Culinaire de France. She started the farmers market stand in 2016. Now there are five locations in Austin: Texas Farmers Market at Mueller, SFC Farmers Market Downtown, SFC Farmers Market at Sunset Valley, Bee Cave Farmers Market, and Texas Farmers’ Market at Lakeline in Cedar Park.
The space itself was designed by Myrtille, business manager Melanie Roy, along with Paris-based firm ACB Architectes & Associés. It’ll be found in the same building that houses Front Page and Uroko.
Julie Myrtille Bakery’s hours will be from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. When the bakery opens, the farmers market stands will continue to run. The opening day will feature free treats.
