This Week’s Bakery Bulletin
Friday, April 24, 2009
Every week I’ll let you know about the bread flavors we’ll be baking, and remind you to order. Below, you’ll find a list of breads available for order this week.
We’ll take the first week of May off, so order enough this week for the next two weeks. As you probably already know, the bread freezes and thaws beautifully.
This is the last week for pickup at Tap Root! After April 29th, you’ll pick up your bread at Over the Rainbow Toys (12201 Industry Way, D5), right next to the Huffman Post Office. See below for more information.
THE BAKERY WEBSITE
Ordering through the website will be easy and fun! The first time you order bread, you’ll click on the “register now” link, pick a username and password, and enter your information (name, email, and phone numbers).
the bread ordering deadline
You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday, so we have time to plan our bake, feed our sourdough, and pre-ferment the dough! When you order the bread, you can choose to “pay when you pick up your bread,” or you can pay via PayPal. By all means, use PayPal if you prefer—but I’m even happier to get your checks or cash when you come pick up your bread.
bread pickup locations
Pick-up locations for Wednesday, April 29

NEW SOUTH-SIDE LOCATION, Starting in May
Tap Root Café will be changing locations soon—possibly moving downtown! We are very grateful to Tap Root for allowing us to deliver our bread there for these last two years—but we needed to find a new pickup location! Over the Rainbow Toys (12201 Industry Way, D5), right next to the Huffman Post Office, has graciously agreed to be our new pickup spot for bread (and Glacier Valley CSA produce boxes—more information below). May 13th will be the first date for the new pickup location at Over the Rainbow Toys, so I’ll keep you posted as we get closer to the transition.
GLACIER VALLEY FARM COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE (CSA)
It’s the only year-round program featuring local Alaskan produce! Would you like to pick up a box of beautiful and economical local vegetables when you need produce? Subscribers to our CSA program aren’t limited to our short farmers’ market season to get Alaskan produce; we’re loading boxes year-round! During the winter, local produce includes cabbages, carrots, potatoes, onions, beets, and turnips. To add variety to these nourishing and savory staples, we add all sorts of vegetables and fruits from certified organic farms Outside. Each box also contains a newsletter loaded with my delicious, healthy recipes tailored to the week’s vegetables. [$35/box]
You can sign up for a box once a week, twice a month, or more sporadically—you choose the dates! You pre-pay for your box, then pick it up at one of several locations in Anchorage, Eagle River, or the Valley. Please visit our website for more information!
