Wildwood Flour Bread Ready To Unveil New Bakery In San Diego's Pacific Beach

June 26, 2022

Opening later this week in San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood is Wildwood Flour, a scratch-made bakery offering fresh-baked breads and pastries cooked with mill-ground flour.

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year, San Diego natives and and UC Berkeley alumni Noah Orloff and Lauren Silver are ready to bring their passion for home baking into their first bakery brick and mortar business. Orloff previously ran a bakery in Valley Center and worked at a bakery in Santa Cruz before moving back to San Diego. During the pandemic, the duo operated a cottage baking business and supplied bread to area eateries like La Jolla's Pannikin and El Pescador. In early 2022, they took over the 2,000 square-foot space that last housed ASIS Physical Therapy in Pacific Beach for the opening of Wildwood Flour Bakery & Grocery.

Set to open on Saturday, July 2, Wildwood Flour will offer a revolving variety of baked goods, naturally leavened sourdough bread, bagels, pastries, and more using ingredients from local farmers, including fresh wheat berries ground daily to make flour for baked goods. The space will also offer a line of grocery items, like handmade cheese, seasonal produce, dairy, eggs, canned goods, tinned fish, cured meats, fermented items, fresh jams, granola, spreads, pickled products, and even the company's fresh-ground flour for those looking to bake at home. The bakery will also eventually add a weekly-changing menu with sandwiches and toasts, as well as coffee and tea beverages.

Wildwood Flour Bakery & Grocery is located at 1976 Garnet Avenue in San Diego's Pacific Beach. For more information, visit wildwoodflour.com.
