Okay, we’re in the thick of it now, the grass is drying and the cicadas are loud. High summer for sure. We did take some time camping at Odlin this week and watched at the late Solstice dusk, huge beetles zoom straight up in the air until they disappeared, escaping the swallows and bats. The Solstice is when the sun stands still and it’s a good time to pause, so we did! We hope you did too! And now we’re back to it all again and more!
We hope to see your lovely self at any of these places to buy our goodies or just out and about!
We have two days of fresh breads and pastries coming out this week, Wednesday (6/26) at Midnight’s Farm (9-2) and Saturday (6/29) at the Lopez Village Farmer’s Market (10-2). You can find the list of offerings for each day below. Treat yourself and all your summer guests!
Wednesday at the bakery at Midnight’s Farm:
BAGELS! In five flavors: Sesame, Poppy, Everything, Plain, Salt- Our unique all sourdough, long fermented, hand rolled and boiled bagels baked in a wood fired oven. Come see what all the fuss is about
Country Bread – The Pleaser
Sourdough Croissants and their Chocolate variation – these really are pretty special 25 minutes out of the oven. Heritage grain, whole pastured butter, goodness. Hard to find, and here you are!
Strawberry Scones – This is the classic
Savory veggie hand pies – Potatoes and scapes, fennel, and greens, herbs, and cheese.
Puff Pastry Pizzas – Pesto of alliums and greens and baby zucchinis and red orach

Saturday at the Farmer’s Market
Wild Leavened Breads
Village Country Bread- The daily bread, and now you can get it almost that often!
Miche – bread worth gathering around.
Seedy Petites and Rosemary Petites- Two varieties of our smaller picnic sized loaf (I guess for those of you who don’t picnic Miche style…) both full of flavor and goodness. Tear into either or both!
Millet Apricot – rich apricot morsels, nutty millet porridge, organic flour all grown within 50 miles of our bakery, amazing!
Lopez Levain – This is our challenge, this is our passion, this is the risk, this is our chance, this is the culmination of work done by farmers and millers and bakers right here in our community to keep alive the ancient secrets of the grain. Like any life lived within the constraints of our natural world, sometimes this bread isn’t the easiest path, but it’s always the path that speaks to our hearts, that speaks of love.
Mountain Bread- A traditional Danish style Rye, made with Spelt and a hundred other things. Slice it thin, top it savory or sweet or not at all!
Tordu- The perfect bread when you don’t know what bread to get
Lopez Sandwich – A tender and functional send up to the classic white sandwich bread, made with whole grains grown here on island and Skagit grown flour.
Gluten Free Sliced– Whole grains, no gluten, wild leavened… people come from far and wide to hunt this down.
Wild Leavened Treats
Strawberry Fruit Scones- We are so grateful for James working on these beauties this summer!
Gluten Free Seasonal Fruit Scones – with oat flour and brown rice flour, totally delectable alternate to the above!
Maple Vanilla Cream Cheese Cinnamon Roll – We can always improve on a good thing…these are yummier than ever!
Croissants – whooeee! A lot of effort and magic and luck and goes into getting these right.
Chocolate Croissants – a classy pair for sure
Savory Pesto Twist – Loads of basil, spinach, scapes and parm!
Savory handpies– We head out to the garden and down to the farmstands and swing by the farmer’s booths at the farmer’s market each week, buying whatever looks good, smoosh it up, and voila, hand pies! Made with our signature heritage grain yogurt pastry dough and filled up with potatoes, fennel, spinach, arugula, leeks, caramelized onions, organic mozzarella cheese, and herbs.
Savory Tarts: Pesto of alliums and greens and baby zucchinis and red orach
Flatbreads – all savory goodness with Goosefoot Spinach and Sunnyfield Feta!
