Bakery Pop Up At Les Amis Du Fromage’s East Van Location April 28, 2018

11 Apr

LoavesOfBreadIn case you hadn’t heard the news, les amis du fromage’s East Van location at 843 East Hastings Street is hosting bakery pop up shops.  We hear their first one was a great success and sold out in no time. No surprise to us. Amazing bread and les amis du fromage’s selection of cheeses make for a winning combination.  Your next opportunity to check out their Bakery Pop Up is Saturday, April 28th. This one features guest bakers Two Bald Bakers who will be selling handmade loaves of bread made with ancient grains from Noon to 5:00 pm. Noam Dagan and Mendi Yuda have created a seed to loaf bakery that uses only 100% traceable grains that they mill. Note, all their breads are vegan a swell.  Stop by Saturday, April 28th to support these local bakers.

Now if you are a baker yourself and have people salivating over your baked goods, you may be interested in hosting a pop up shop yourself at les amis du fromage.  If so, contact les amis du formage directly. They’d love to hear from you.
