Community Supported Bakery
Get your favorite Bakeshop goodies delivered to your neighborhood by joining our Community Supported Bakery (CSB) program. The idea comes from farm Community Supported Agriculture programs which offer"membership" to their farm and members receive a "share" of their harvests delivered to neighborhood pick up sites at homes, businesses or churches. CSAs and CSBs help producers plan out production and develop a direct relationship with folks.
By joining the Bakeshop CSB you subscribe to getting a "share" of baked goods delivered to your nearest neighborhood drop site. Once you are a member you will be able to build a custom box in our member store with your favorite products and flavors. We offer bagels and bread each week with a rotating menu of scones, cookies, pastries and savory snacks. Becoming a member is wonderful way to get the freshest baked goods delivered each week and know that they've been made with lots of care.
To start getting deliveries simply visit the Join section of our website to sign up. Once you select your drop site, pick up frequency, provide contact and enter payment information you will be able to customize your first delivery! If you join 8pm on Sunday night you can start deliveries the following Wednesday. If we receive your sign up after Sunday at 8pm you will start deliveries the following week.
Pick up sites are at local homes, businesses and churches that have offered to act as hosts. Many host multiple community supported businesses like Frog Hollow Farm, Riverdog Farm and Real Good Fish so you can get some great food, straight from the source. We currently deliver to Lafayette, Orinda, Walnut Creek (coming soon!) and Martinez. If you don't live near one of those sites please consider hosting a pick up at your home or business! Site hosts get to try new products first as part of our R & D team and enjoy a discount on their share.
What We Make
You can check out our Share Sizes to see your options but each size is designed to offer a variety of useful baked goods. We announce add-ons each week via email and plan on rolling out more each month.
- Sourdough Bagels - We ferment our bagel dough for over 24 hours so it makes for great flavor, chewy texture and, from our experience, is easier to digest than most. Customers swear by slicing and freezing them to toast as needed. Pro tip: they make awesome pizza bagels! Pick your favorite bagel flavors including our very popular Rosemary Sea Salt Bagel,
- Bread - Sandwich bread is a staple in many homes and we like to think of Sandwich Loaf as the swiss army knife of bread. Wonderful with eggs or jam in the morning and perfect for sandwiches and delicious as croutons in your favorite salad! We look offer more bread soon!
- Cream Scones - Our seasonal scones flavors change to feature the best produce of the season. We rotate pastries, cookies and savory surprises each week so you always have something fun to look forward to. Regulars include Brownies, Conchas, Kolache, Bavarian Pretzels and Cookies.
Why a CSB?
In a typical retail setting there is a fair amount of guess work involved in deciding how much product to make each day. This results in a lot of food waste at the end of the day which in turn means higher prices to cover all the food that wasn't sold. By becoming a member you help us plan our production needs in advance and help us grow in a sustainable way. You are helping us reduce food waste and in turn we can deliver a high quality product at a lower cost, right to your neighborhood. We have lived in 4 states in the last decade and have enjoyed CSAs in every one. We hope that by using seasonal produce from awesome local farms we will be able to support the farms we love and provide you with dynamic goodies to share with your friends and families.
