Barn Owl at the Grange! First Market of the year – Saturday 1/12 10am til 2pm

We are so excited to join with you and the lovely year round food vendors of Lopez at the cozy Grange Market this Saturday from 10am to 2pm…
Here is more information on the when’s and where’ and who’s
The grange holds such a special agrarian and community function and spirit and we are so pleased for the efforts of the folks that are making it happen. Late winter and early Spring are the trickiest months for many of us trying to build a livelihood from a Lopez based business and this little indoor market is a huge support in our sustainability.  
 
We look forward to sharing the space with such quality products and yummy food and to see you all as we step out in this dim light of deep winter, as balmy as it has been. Here’ what you can find on Saturday.
 
Wild Leavened Breads
 
Village Country Bread-  Slab off a thick slice, fry it on the griddle with unheard of quantities of fresh organic pastured butter, sprinkle with San Juan sea salt… snack-time at the Barn Owl house!
 
Miche – These sell out fast, give us an email if you want us to hold one for you.
 
Seedy Petite- A smaller loaf but big on flavor, toasted seeds and a sprinkling of dried allium bring this one to the top of the favorite list. 
 
Barley Raisin– Coming back this market with some tweaks, gonna perfect this one!
 
Heritage Hearth –   A carefully selected blend of Lopez and Skagit grown all organic heritage grains chock full of heady flavor and real nutrition.
 
Tordu-  Like the gnarled grapevines along Fisherman Bay rd, these rustic baguettes draw up deep flavor from the ancient soils of baking tradition and organic grains, the scalding heat of a fresh oven, and the special twist that gives them their name and character.
 
Lopez Sandwich –  A tender and functional send up to the classic white sandwich bread, made with whole grains grown by Ron Norman and milled by Island Grist right here on island and Skagit grown flour.
 
Gluten Free Sliced– Whole grains, no gluten, wild leavened… joy fills those who take it home.
 
Mountain Bread – The classic dense Danish style rye bread, loaded up with seeds, whole grains, plump raisins, beer, and a pinch of honey. A sweet/savory decadent way to begin a day. 
 
Wild Leavened Treats
 
Blueberry Buns- You may have tried these over at Isabel’s Coffeehouse where they have been a great delight and compliment to the beverages there. There is some debate in the bakery as to the style of these: more sparse dried blueberry crumble scattered across the dough (called “sprinkles” by those who make it…) or the saucy jammy mess spread over the whole thing before being rolled up…but lucky for you we can’t decide so it’s currently both. Blueberries two ways! In a cosmic, contemplative, spiral archetype. 
 
Puff Pastry Pizzas – We debuted these at the last market and they seemed to be a big hit. We’re always brainstorming ways of using more Lopez grown produce, and these seem to fit the bill. A layer of our signature wild leavened laminated croissant dough, topped with a nest of peak seasonal veggies. This week it’s Delicata, fennel, leek, Parmesan, black cumin, smoked sea salt, and kelp powder. 
 
Lopez Apple & Dried Cherry Scones
The heritage fruit trees on our little island are truly a treasure. Having the good fortune to bake with the apples that come from our ancient old deep rooted windswept half rotted too-tall trees is a real treat. Twigg Farm and Birkemeier apples here, with Chickadee Farm pears.
 
Gluten Free Apple Dried Cherry Scones – Rich oat goodness, loaded up with Midnight Farm’s apples and fresh grated ginger. 
 
Maple Vanilla Cream Cheese Cinnamon Roll – All whole grain, all island grown heritage grains, all organic, all pastured dairy, a heart warming treat perfect with a hot beverage on a grey day. 
Chocolate Croissants:  naturally leavened to bring the tang with the sweet…
 
Savory Handpies–  A perfect snack for when breakfast seems so long ago and lunch just seems like it’ll never get here, or buy 5, make a green salad, and serve them for dinner. 
 
Lopez Heritage Plum Custard Galette – We jealously squirreled away a stockpile of these Italian plums from the warm days of summer and are happy to see them again wedded to a rich vanilla custard of Stonecrest Farm egg yolks and whole pastured milk. 
 
Sprouted Lopez Wheat Shortbread-  A simple and rich traditional treat. Made Lopez style with local whole grain and intrepid hearty rosemary. 
 
Our very best to you!
Barn Owlies…🌾
