NOTE: If this is your first Breadness Buzz, or if you've been part of our tribe but missed earlier posts, visit the Breadness Buzz Archive here and catch up on this content written especially for you (by me!). It's a great way to meet like-minded artisan sourdough aficionados and be part of this journey I started back in 2016. And now for this week's Buzz...
We continue Sourdough September with a stroll through our Photo Gallery...

At Random Acts of Breadness, Free Bread happens in myriad ways...
ROSELLE COMPLETED ANOTHER FREQUENT FLOUR REWARDS CARD AND COLLECTED HER FREE COUNTRY LOAF!
(Did you know... When you purchase 2 bags of Breadness Crisps, you get 1 punch on your Frequent Flour Rewards Card!)
ANOTHER FREQUENT FLOUR REWARDS CARD COMPLETED!
THE HAYDENS COMPLETE YET ANOTHER FREQUENT FLOUR REWARDS CARD AND HAVE A BOX OF BREADNESS FOR THE WEEK!
THIS CUSTOMER IS HAPPY BECAUSE SHE COMPLETED HER FREQUENT FLOUR REWARDS CARD AND NABBED HER FREE LOAF!
AS A FREQUENT FLOUR REWARDS CARD MEMBER, YOU ALSO GET A FREE PETITE LOAF AND BLING ON YOUR BIRTHDAY!
GERARD IS A LONG-TIME CUSTOMER WHO BUYS BREADNESS FOR HIMSELF AND TO GIVE TO HIS CLIENTS.
But on this day, Gerard did a true random act of Breadness when he paid for a loaf for a new customer who just happened to be there when Gerard came to pick up his Breadness order!
And, I don't have a photo for this story but I was telling a new customer how Random Acts of Breadness came to be by me giving bread away for several years. She was so inspired by that story that she told the next customer in line that she was paying for her loaf!
Random gifting can happen at any time at Random Acts of Breadness! And when it does, we are all touched by the moment.
And, of course, we have all the other goodies that go with Breadness, like Raw Farm Butter (or Nutiva vegan butter), Laura Ann's Jams, Clif Family Honey Spreads and Beyond the Olive Tapenades!
Many of our customers buy more than one loaf of bread so they can freeze some for later use (or give it as a gift in the middle of the week). If you plan on freezing your bread, let us know so we can give you bread that's already frozen and double bagged. Many of the frozen loaves are already sliced, making it easy for you to take only the slices you want from the frozen loaf and letting them thaw in another sealed bag on your counter for about 30 minutes. We have fresh and frozen Country Loaves and the Cinnamon Raisin Maple Pecan Loaves described above. (Just the thing if you want your Breadness for Labor Day festivities on Monday!)
