Former Boston Herald Writer Laura Raposa to Open The Foodsmith in Duxbury

It looks like a well-known local newspaper writer is going to be opening her very own food shop on the South Shore.

According to a Facebook post, former Boston Herald columnist Laura Raposa is planning to open The Foodsmith, a bakery and "take-away" lunch place that will be located in Duxbury's Halls Corner. The note says that Raposa is looking to open the shop this summer, and that she and her husband are currently working on getting the Standish Street space ready (including doing some painting over the past weekend).

[August 25 update: A new Facebook thread indicates that The Foodsmith opens its doors tomorrow (Wednesday. August 26) at 7:00 AM.]

Laura Raposa worked for The Boston Herald for more than 30 years, including more than 20 of those as a co-columnist (along with Gayle Fee) for the Inside Track. She said farewell to the paper in the spring of 2013 in order to focus on her cooking and some other ventures, according to an earlier Herald article . Raposa was once interviewed on our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants), with the topic being mainly on favorite dining spots in the Boston area and beyond; a link to the chat can be found here:
