We’ve been making bacon non-stop since we opened as we really enjoy the process, love making a truly local pork product, and have had different iterations on a bacon sandwich for our entire life here at Breadbaron. We’ve had success with holiday bacon pre-orders around Christmas-time – we decided then, why not open up pre-orders for bacon for anytime? This way we can reduce or eliminate the times when customers show up and we don’t have enough bacon to spare for retail. Order form below, try it out!
We had a great little end-of-summer break, but all things must come to an end. We’re back in action, gearing up our local deliveries and working on an upcoming menu change in October. Our newest jam is that we’ve signed on to just-eat.ca to enable smaller, more modular orders from the community – check it out! We’re still operating our order form from this website for larger corporate orders, in addition to building our standing orders with local businesses.
In other news, it’s harvest time and we’re working hard on pickling and canning whenever we get some spare time around here. We’re also bringing in a vendor friend on Saturdays to supplement our menu with some sweets. A warm welcome to Birgit from bittersweettart.co who will be bringing in a line of locally baked goods and selling them here for kids and adults alike.
As we move into another fall, a couple of things are on our plate in addition to our normal operations. We’re working hard on harvest pickling – it has been a fun couple of weeks so far of purchasing, processing and canning. We’re refining our recipes and getting a little more inventive this year with our pickles and preserves. We’re working on building a pantry shelf in our stand to help house all of the new jars. On the garden front, it’s a bit of an inverse time of year for that kind of thing, but we’re talking about garlic! This project should bear some wonderful fruit next year – we’re working on growing a large patch of garlic that we’re going to sell at market and use in our prep. Thanks a million to Bill Hatten for donating copious land, labour, and love!
Did you know that the wrappers from our sandwiches come with a $1 off coupon you can tear off? Think of it as card-less loyalty card that pays more frequently!
We want to thank all of our wonderful repeat customers who have collectively brought back over 1,000 coupons torn from our wrappers. One one hand, we’ve lost a bit of profit, but on the other, we’re happy to bring you guys back and offer an incentive (beyond getting a tasty sandwich made from great ingredients) on frequenting our shop.
We’re baking cakes and donating half of the proceeds to House of Friendship Kitchener, our neighbours on Charles Street. We’re taking pre-orders at our stand, or by e-mail. You choose your type of cake – spiced apple, carrot raisin, or chocolate chip - and your pick-up date, and we’ll bake cakes for you at $8 tax incl. each, $4 of which goes to HOF. We’re thinking of it as sort of a pre-ordered holiday bake sale. We’l be selling cakes this way into February so that we can donate then, so think of this option into the new year as well if you’re interested!
Don’t you crave a t-shirt with a logo nobody’s heard of? Yes you do, because the rarer logos are, the hipper they are. Well now’s the time folks! Hurry, before everybody already knows what you’re talking about!
But seriously. We would love if bought a t-shirt or tote from us to show us your support and help spread the word about us.
