ROCKLAND — A bakery with a shop in Northport plans to locate a food trailer in the city.

Scone Goddess has filed an application with the city to locate the food trailer at Snow Marine Park next year for two days a week from April through October.

The Rockland Harbor Management Commission will consider the application at its Tuesday, Nov. 1 meeting.

Scone Goddess has a shop at 1390 Atlantic Highway (Route 1) in Northport.

Kate Clark will be managing The Scone Goddess Fresh Baked Scones trailer that will be open two days a week year-round to start. Clark plans on being a regular vendor at The Guini Ridge Winter Farmers Market located at 310 Commercial St.  in Rockport.

“Given the cold weather, you will see the adorable trailer in the parking lot, but, Kate and her team will be inside with all the delicious scones, premium-class scone mixes and coffee that you are looking for,” the Scone Goddess stated in a news release.

The food trailer will be on the road for some special events and a “residency” at The Goddess Flagship Store in Northport.

“Our customers have been asking us to open on Sunday,” Veronica Stubbs, owner of The Scone Goddess stated. “We want to make sure that Kate is successful in her partnership with us, so, it is a natural fit to have her here on Sunday serving our existing client base.”

Once approval is received from the Rockland Harbor Management Commission for the trailer placement at Snow Marine Park, Clark will be open Saturdays and Sundays from April through October.

“Years ago I came across this adorable little food truck. The lady that ran it made scones and tea. You would order, then sit outside at these sweet little tables and it was just lovely. I have always dreamed of retiring and doing something similar,” Clark stated.

“Although not ready to retire yet, Kate and her family will offer such an experience. With the lush green grass, the ocean and the culture of the museums next door, Snow Marine Park offers the perfect ambience for summer tea and scones,” the news release stated.

“As soon as I met Kate, I knew she would be the perfect person to take over the fresh baked scone trailer. It is near and dear to my heart, and I wanted someone passionate about the scones we offer, and, more importantly, committed to the highest level of service to our community. Kate is that person,” Stubbs said.

For the entire month of November, The Scone Goddess has committed to donating 5% of its proceeds to The Knox County Homeless Coalition. “We love Maine, we love our community. No one should have to worry about a roof over their head or whether they have to choose between food or heat,” Stubbs said. “In addition to donating money, we will be collecting toys, books, socks and mittens for the children that look to the holidays as a bright spot in their life.”

The news release pointed out the growth the business has had during the past three years. Stubbs started baking scones one day a week at the farmers market on Saturdays. Her customer base grew quickly. When the pandemic hit, rather than wait it out, she pivoted to online sales of her premium scone mixes. With more than 20 original mixes and 12 gluten free mixes, she soon started shipping across the United States.

As soon as she felt it safe to do so, she had the fresh baked scones trailer custom built and wrapped in The Scone Goddess logo. Parking at her friend Liz’s Bayside Store in Northport, Stubbs “realized that there was enough scone love to support a brick and mortar.”

A year later, the flagship store is thriving and The Scone Goddess is branching out with brand licensees starting their own businesses.

“It is still so surreal,” says Stubbs. “I love what I do everyday, and there is nothing more fulfilling than the smiling faces that leave my shop. I am so thrilled that Kate, and others to follow, will get to experience that.”
