You may have had a hard time getting tickets to go see “Hamilton” here in San Francisco, but on the bright side, it’ll soon be a lot easier to get the amazingly heavenly sublime bread produced by Tartine Bakery, right here in Bernal Heights.
Neighbor Holly from the Epicurean Trader tells Bernalwood:
We’ve partnered with San Francisco’s Tartine Bakery to sell their loaves. We will be the first and only store outside of their own bakery that they will allow to sell it.
If you’re not familiar with Tartine, they’re considered one of the best bakeries in the country (known especially for their bread) and have won many industry awards, including the highly coveted James Beard Award.
To start out, Tartine will deliver the loaves fresh (literally straight from their ovens) at 11am each Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. There will be limited supply, so people will need to come early, however, we will accept pre-orders in-store if someone wants to be guaranteed a loaf.
We’d like get to seven days a week for these deliveries, so if demand is strong (which I hope it will be!), we’ll quickly ramp to a daily offering.
We plan to launch with the following loaves: Country Loaf, Whole Wheat Sesame, Oat Porridge and the Sprouted Rye. These loaves are HUGE! Excellent value really for the size, quality of the grains and craftsmanship.
Also, for those that are worried about missing out each week (let’s be honest, it’s going to happen…), we’re setting up a weekly subscription option whereby you are guaranteed a loaf (or loaves) each week with pick up available on your choice of Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Weekly subscribers will be invoiced monthly (vs. each pick-up) to keep everything moving quickly.
