This Week’s Bakery Bulletin

Issue #68


We have finished our summer at the South Anchorage Farmers Market, and we’ve switched to our wintertime routine. You can order the bread here on our website and we will bake your loaves for pickup on one or two Wednesdays a month. Please sign up for our email bulletins (see the sidebar on the left)! The bulletins remind you when we are baking, when you can order, and let you know what flavors of bread we’ll be baking .

After you order bread, you can pick up your loaves on Wednesday evenings (4-6pm) at Sweet Adeline’s toy shop (just two doors down from the former Summit Spice and Tea shop at 1120 Huffman Rd, Suite 4), on Huffman Road OR on Wednesday mornings (8-10am) downtown at Side Street Espresso (412 G Street). PLEASE NOTE: We are now delivering to Sweet Adeline’s instead of Summit Spice and Tea.

Before we start baking for our wintertime schedule, we are taking a few weeks off to visit family. Then we’ll be back to bake bread for Wednesday, November 7. If you sign up for the email newsletter (see the sidebar at left), I’ll send a reminder to you on Thursday, November 1. 

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! In case you can’t make the website work, you can always email me at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or call me at 677-3712.

If you’ve ordered bread before, but you are having trouble remembering your login name or password, you can email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or call me at 677-3712.

We’ll be baking once or twice a month, and I’ll be sure to let you know a week ahead of time by email, if you sign up for the bulletin (see the sidebar to the left).

the bread ordering deadline

You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday (starting on November 1), 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 Wednesdays:
1.  Side Street Espresso, 412 G Street, downtown: 8-10am
2.  Sweet Adeline’s, at 1120 Huffman Rd, Suite 4 (in the mall at Huffman and Old Seward): 4-6pm

If you need to call me during a pick-up time, you can reach me on my cell phone at 748-3712. At other times, it’s usually best to call me at home/the bakery: 677-3712.

Would you like to see a video of us baking your bread? Our bakery is a small commercial kitchen attached to our house on the lower Anchorage Hillside.
