Such is the tale of Sadie Scheffer, who took courting one step further with her biz Bread Srsly. After tinkering with farmers market ingredients (from her day job repping Serendipity Farms’s booth), she landed a killer loaf that won her boo’s heart.
Scheffer now delivers fresh-baked, gluten-, egg-, soy-, nut-, and dairy-free loaves (orange cardamom, sourdough pumpernickel) and muffins (apple cinnamon, not-too-sweet pluot) by bike to city dwellers (Tuesdays) and East Bayers (Thursdays).
Wednesday marks the launch of sandwiches, when Scheffer posts up at Yerba Buena Gardens with The Truck Stop (brisket, cilantro salsa, candied kumquat marmalade, sourdough) and The Candyman (pepper pickled apples, black bean cake, organic Foggy Morning cheese, corn bread). But she’s gone once she sells out.
Available by email order (firstname.lastname@example.org), $3-$8. To see the menu, go to breadsrsly.com. Subscriptions and loaves are available online at etsy.com, $32-$60. Scheffer’s sandwiches are available Wednesday, starting at 11:30 a.m., at Yerba Buena Gardens, Mission Street, between 3rd and 4th Streets, on the grass, $10.
