All Good Bakers, a well loved and celebrated Abany bakery/cafe known for local, fresh, and affordable meals and baked goods, has officially closed its doors.
It is indeed a sad loss not only for the owners but for the niche local following who loved the cafe, which boasted farm to table goods, starting out as just a farmer's market stand before also securing a storefront on Quail Street and then onto Delaware Ave.
Like most small businesses, the fate of All Good Bakers rested solely in the hands of the owners and the community, and this beloved cafe was dealing with issues on both fronts.

Earlier this summer, a world record was set in France for the largest gathering of people wearing fake mustaches. Well, this Saturday at the ValleyCats game, that's all about to change.
In honor of ValleyCats manager Ed Romero, the Tri-City ValleyCats will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people wearing false mustaches this Saturday, August 24 at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium in Troy, NY.
The best part is, the mustaches will be handed out free to the first 3,000 fans through the gate so you won't have to go hunting down your own 'stache. At some point during the game, The ValleyCats will ask for all who received the mustaches to put them on. The current French record stands at 1,654 fake mustaches. We can do better than that!
