Bread for May 11, 2017

Many of you have been asking me whether I will continue to sell on Thursday nights once the Farmer's Market opens. Yes! I will be selling the same varieties of bread and cookies, and occasional other items, every Thursday, to subscribers and general customers alike, just as I do now.

On Saturdays at the Farmer's Market I will likely have a small number of Country French loaves, but probably not too much else in the way of sourdough. I will, however, have baguettes, probably croissants, and both sweet and savory pastries.

This week I will have Country French, caraway rye, golden-raisin and oat, and cherry-fennel rye. The cherry-fennel will be expensive -- $7.00 per loaf. I do not like charging this much for bread, but I pay $7.50/lb for dried cherries, and there is about a quarter pound of cherries in each loaf. I cannot sell it for less and still make a profit. I don't offer this variety often (mostly because of the cost) so hopefully they will sell. (I would make them smaller but I don't have smaller proofing baskets!)

I may also have a semolina-sesame sourdough loaf. There should be pasta and knackebrod, and I will have chocolate chip, chocolate, and oatmeal raisin cookies. If I get to them, also some ginger snaps.

See you Thursday from 5-7 PM on Main Street!
