Open Oven Details
- Open Ovens are our weekly free wood fired baking/cooking event where the oven is fired up and everyone can come cook/bake, eat together, and picnic in the park. No booking required.
- The Front Street Oven can get pretty busy during some Open Ovens – so bring your patience, it is worth the wait!
- All food being cooked needs to be in the oven no later than 1:45 pm.
Open ovens are every Saturday from June – October, weather permitting.
