Vendor Spotlight: A Bread Affair


One of the most simple and delicious pleasures in life is homemade bread. A Bread Affair takes it to the next level with their love of baking as well as their natural and organic ingredients. We had a chance to chat with them and find out a little more about this bread affair.

Q. Is there honestly any better smell than that of freshly baked bread?
Nothing unless I also have a cup of coffee in my hands.

Q.  What do you love the most about bringing ‘A Bread Affair’ to farmers markets?
My wonderful customers that I get to see every week.

Q. What are your most popular breads?
Our Love At First Bite, Threes Company and Apple of My Eye

Q. What makes ‘A Bread Affair’ different than the rest?
We are Certified Organic which means we are 100% GMO Free and our breads take two days to make because we use natural cultures in all of our breads. In fact, most of our breads are vegan-friendly. Every single loaf of bread we bring to the farmers market is baked just a few hours before. And they are all made with love.

We are also the only bakery that purchases local ingredients for a large part of the bread that we make. For example, the Love at First Bite is made using Pitt Meadow blueberries, Hazelnuts from Bradner and sprouted wheat from Agassiz.

Q. What is your favorite bread?
The Wild Thing, which I eat toasted in the morning with peanut butter.

Farmers Market Goodies

We loved when The Write Balance shared her first Farmers Market Haul. So when she did another, we knew you’d want to peak at what was inside her reusable shopping bag this time!

Farmers Market Haul #2

The Port Moody Farmers Market is becoming part of of our weekly routine. I love that we can pick up fresh local produce, prepared foods and other items while at the same time, getting pesticide-free produce and supporting local farmers and businesses. It’s also a good opportunity to talk to the kids about why we come to the farmers market each week besides the delicious kettle corn and sweet carrots.

I had a really positive response to my first Farmers Market Haul post, so I thought another one was in order to share all the great things I brought home recently.

1. Organic Carrots
I can honestly say that these were the sweetest and most delicious carrots we have ever eaten! When we stopped by the Forstbauer Family Natural Food Farm stand at the market, she gave my kids a carrot just to taste test. The kids loved them and we bought a bunch to take home. I’m not even exaggerating when I say they were all gone within 36 hours. And when my kids asked me for more, you should have seen how disappointed they were when I told them we’d have to wait for the Sunday to pick up more.

2. Free-Range Eggs
Since watching the documentary Food Inc, it’s changed my perspective on food and what I eat, including eggs. I will go out of my way and pay a little extra to get free-range eggs. At first it was at the grocery store, but now when I make my weekly Sunday trip to the famers market, I will pick up a dozen free range eggs. #shoplocal and #support local whenever I can

3. Coconut Cream Treats
First I tried 7 Kids Foods delicious marinara sauce. This time, they had a great new treat, Coconut Creams. They are made with organic ingredients and come in three flavours and the kids love them. Also, they come with these cute handmade covers so your kids fingers don’t get cold.

4. Gourmet Marshmallows
We also had to try some of the delicate marshmallow treats from Whipped Baked Goods which actually melted in our mouth. They are made with cane sugar, no corn syrup in site. I loved the green tea ones, but the kids insisted on buying the Neapolitan flavour which was great too.

5. Organice Potatoes
And finally, we picked up some organic potatoes. Since reading that they are part of the dirty dozen, I figure it’s worth it, don’t you ?
