This Week’s Bakery Bulletin
Thursday, May 20, 2010
Next week is our VERY LAST WEEK for picking up your bread at Side Street Espresso or Over the Rainbow Toys, before we go to the Saturday South Anchorage Farmers Market on June 12th!! The farmers market is at the corner of O’Malley and Old Seward Highway, in the parking lot of the Subway/Cellular One Sports Centre, from 9am to 2pm, or whenever we sell out of bread. We’ll be there on Saturdays except for the first Saturday of each month. Check out our long-term bread schedule for the breads of the week, or sign up for the weekly farmers market newsletter on the front page of the website.
But!! Let’s not get ahead of ourselves! First, I need to tell you what we’re baking for May 26th, so you can pre-order and pick them up at your usual spot, before we make the switch! We’ll be baking our old standbys for the pan loaves: our signature LEVAIN (100% whole wheat sourdough), and the ever-popular SPENT GRAIN (also 100% whole grain), chock full of moist barley grains from Midnight Sun Brewery’s beer-making process.
Hearth loaves this week will be KALAMATA OLIVE, great for any savory lunch or dinner application, and the CHEESE & ROASTED GARLIC loaves, which, when slightly toasted, become a hybrid of a grilled cheese sandwich and garlic bread. Our sweet bread this week is the DARK CHOCOLATE & CHERRY, great for snacks, desserts, and even breakfast for the brave-hearted and caffeine-habituated among you!
If you’re feeling sad because you won’t often get to the Saturday South Anchorage Farmers Market (and for those of you who pick up your bread downtown, I know it’s a stretch), keep in mind that the bread freezes VERY well, and you can stock up this week, or anytime in the summer, and keep the bread in the freezer until you’re ready for it. If you’d like to sign up for a weekly newsletter about what’s at the farmers’ market, visit the website and sign up for farmers market newsletter!!
If you’ve never ordered bread through the website, you’ll click on the “register now” link, pick a username and password, and enter your information (name, email, and phone numbers). Then you can place your order!
If you’d like a weekly email reminder to order bread, and to know about the bread flavors we’ll be baking, sign up for my weekly bakery bulletin (see the sidebar on the left). Below, you’ll find a list of breads available for order this week, for pickup next Wednesday.
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.
