Summer Loaf, Jr. and Sr.

mczlaw | Aug 6, 200502:20 AM     1

If you made it to the first ever Thursday version of the Summer Loaf bread festival--Summer Loaf Jr.--you had the chance to enjoy all the usual goodies at the Thursday Pearl Dist. Portland Farmers Mkt, but lots of extras besides. Too bad about the heat. I brilliantly agreed to do intros and commmentary for the first couple of baking demonstrations. Nothing quite like standing in front of a 600 degreee oven on a 95 degree day.

Word to the wise if you are planning on visiting the main event tomorrow (Saturday) morning. Get there early. Probably going to be about 130 or so vendors (best guess) and 20,000 visitors. Look for even more special vendors, including the Dagoba chocolate folks with some of their newer stuff and many bakeries with the kinds of pastries that would have been oozing messes on Thursday.
