Ever-expanding Downtown Glasgow welcomes new bakery

Sweet Basil Bakeshop & Mercantile

GLASGOW, Ky. – The ever-growing Downtown Glasgow is celebrating another win with the addition of a new shop. And in this case, the win is especially sweet. 

Sweet Basil Bakeshop & Mercantile is a new attraction for tourists and residents alike.  

The artisan bakery specializes in fresh bread and pastries. 

Glasgow native Katie Reece has dreamed of opening her bakery right here on the square for years ever since her late grandfather taught her the joy of baking. 

The bakeshop celebrated its soft opening this past weekend. 

My grandfather taught me to bake at an early age we would bake homemade rolls, homemade bread, cookies at Christmas time… and it’s something that I hope I continue to share with others for a  very long time,” said Katie.

Katie says she expects a grand opening and ribbon cutting in the near future.
