Issue #76


You can begin ordering NOW for bread pickup on Wednesday, May 15.

This will be our last bake before we start selling bread at the South Anchorage Farmers Market on June 22. Our loaves freeze and thaw quite well, so you can stock up if you like.

Sign up for our email list (on the left margin) if you’d like be reminded when you can order in the future.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Southside delivery location will now be SWEET ADELINE’S TOY SHOP instead of Summit Spice and Tea, since they have moved to Midtown. Sweet Adeline’s is just two doors down from Summit’s former location in the mall at 1120 Huffman Road.

For pickup on Wednesday, May 15 (please order by Sunday, May 12):

We’re baking our SIGNATURE LEVAIN pan loaves, the 100% whole wheat sourdough with a complex and delicious flavor. And as always, we’ll be baking the 100% whole grain SPENT GRAIN pan loaves, liberally studded with cooked barley groats left over from the Midnight Sun Brewery’s beer-making process.

Our savory hearth loaves will be the FRESH ROSEMARY and the ONION RYE bread. Both of these loaves make delicious dinner bread, and you can’t beat them for sandwiches.

The sweet loaf for May will be the FRUITED ALMOND hearth loaf, loaded with apricots, dried cranberries, golden raisins, and toasted almonds. Slices of this hearty loaf are great for snacks and treats any time of the day, and they make a great treat for your friends at the office, or at a pot luck.

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!  You will pay for the bread when you come to pick it up—either by cash or check. Please note: We are no longer using PayPal as a payment option on our website, because we were having so many troubles with keeping it functional.

1.  Side Street Espresso, 412 G Street, downtown: 8-10am
