BREAD SCHEDULE UNCHANGED: As a food supplier, we are considered an essential service and will remain in operation as much as possible during the pandemic and the shelter-at-home orders of the State of California. For as long as we are able, we plan to continue baking bread and selling it at our bakery on Friday afternoons and at the Saturday morning Santa Barbara Farmers’ Market, according to the schedule below.

If you are ill: If you order bread but cannot come to market, please let us know as soon as possible so we can restock your order and give you a credit for future purchase. If you need alternative delivery because you are sequestered at home for illness or safety, please contact us for accommodation. We will try to honor as many requests from the homebound as we can. 

We feel lucky to have so many loyal and regular customers. Thank you.

We are very concerned for health care workers, first responders, other essential workers, the immunosuppressed, the elderly, the laid off, the homeless and otherwise vulnerable members of our community. Please stay safe at home as much as possible, practice physical distancing, wear your mask in public, wash your hands, and donate to your local food banks and blood banks if you can. 



This is handcrafted bread.

In Lompoc, Melissa Sorongon uses her stone mill to grind into flour the heritage grains that we cultivate ourselves here in California. She uses a natural levain (sourdough starter) to ferment the dough, shapes it by hand, then bakes the loaves in her 2012 Turtlerock wood-fired oven. Melissa and her daughter, Juliet, bring each week’s bread to Santa Barbara’s Saturday farmer’s market.

Made in very small quantities, Piedrasassi bread is available for purchase most Saturdays at Santa Barbara’s Saturday Farmers’ Market, from 8:30 AM to 1PM. We tend to sell out very quickly. Pre-ordering ensures your loaf will be reserved for your pickup during market hours.

Pre-ordering deadline: Friday noon before the corresponding market date.


5/9, 5/16, 5/23, 5/30, 6/6, 6/20, 6/27

Some loaves may not be available all market dates. See the product drop-down menus for available pick-up dates.
