L.A.’s Grand Central Market will be host to the Los Angeles Bread Festival for the third year in a row. The free, two-day event is a celebration of Southern California's artisanal bread renaissance and an invitation to the public to experience the many expressions of L.A. bread at its best.
The main focus of the festival will be a pop-up marketplace, where local bread bakers will showcase their products. Additionally, there will be live demonstrations and workshops. Some of the local bakers appearing at the marketplace will be Antigua Artisan Bread, Bub & Grandma’s, Friends & Family, Challah Hub, Ensaymada Project, Los Angeles Bread Bakers, Red Bread, The SpeakEasy Bakery, and The Underground Bakery.
Jam providers including IndieJams, M. Greenwood Jams, and Spread the Love will be there as well to help visitors pair their breads with delicious jams and nut butters.
One of the more popular events at the festival is the “Feel the Churn Butter Aerobics,” which promises to get the crowd’s hearts racing with a butter-churning workshop. Additional workshops led by guest bakers will cover artisan bread making at home, beginning bread making, pita, biscuits and challah plus community bread baking hosted by MOMO Wood-fired Bread Oven.
The Los Angeles Bread Festival is free to attend and begins Saturday, June 3 at 9:00 a.m. PST.
