San Francisco restaurateur opens Cloverdale bakery


The first phase of Trading Post Market and Bakery has opened at 102 S. Cloverdale Blvd., and the rustic bakery, market and restaurant is already garnering almost as much attention as its owner, San Francisco restaurateur Matthew Semmelhack.

While it will be a few more months before the restaurant is ready, the bakery is now open noon-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, serving freshly baked specialty breads created by baker Aaron Arabian. It’s part of a larger plan for Semmelhack, a 32-year old entrepreneur who wanted a farm and wound up with more than he bargained for in Cloverdale.
