A Market Square favorite will be expanding into a new area of business.

Tomato Head is in the process of forming its own bakery, and will soon begin offering everything from pita bread and rolls to bagels, baguettes and sourdough to local grocery stores like Three Rivers Market and Butler and Bailey Market.

Owner Mahasti Vafaie says it's a chance to continue doing what she loves in new ways.

"I've always wanted to bake bread. It's been a passion of mine for many many years, so this is a wonderful opportunity for me. We have such a need for some great artisan breads here in town, so we're hoping we can fill that need shortly."

The bakery will be located in the former Hogan's Bakery site off Middlebrook Pike.

Vafaie expects to open in a little over a week.
