Maine Artisan Bread Fair

MP would travel anywhere in Maine for good bread. This Saturday, the Maine Grain Alliance is hosting its annual bread fair with over 60 food vendors from across New England. Even though Skowhegan is an hour-plus drive, the promise of skilled bakers offering wood-fired pizza, decadent pastries, and crusty baguettes is enough for MP to get the family in the car and go.



If delicious breads and pastries aren’t enough to pique your interest, the fun events are certainly enticing. The talented folks at King Arthur Flour will be on hand to discuss their best baking tips. You’ll also find a children’s area, live music, and all the supplies home bakers love.








PS: Check out two of our favorite bakeries: here and here, plus this delicious, thin crust pizza recipe from Maine Grain Alliance presenter and Cook’s Illustrated associate editor, Andrew Janjigian.

  1. Believe it or not, the hubs and I were just discussing last week that we HAD to start making our own bread, and we want to go to skowhegan to get the flour from Maine Grains! So sad that we’ll miss the festival on Saturday; trip to Bar Harbor planned. As far as where we go for great bread, hoping that it will shortly be a walk to our own kitchen! 🙂

      We have a really simple, artisan bread recipe we make at home. MP will have to post the recipe some time soon! Keep us posted on how you’re on bread making goes.

  2. Bagel Central in Bangor! Not only do they have delicious bagels but they also have moist and chewy breads as well.
