Winter Schedule 2018


Hello dear Tinder Hearth supporters-

This is just a little note to catch you all up on our winter plans. This season we have decided to significantly change our schedule: we are decreasing our baking days and outlets in an attempt to make the off-season more sustainable for the business. It is a difficult decision to make for multiple reasons, but especially because it will make the bread and pastries less available for you. We are so grateful for all of your support through the years, and look forward to many more years of serving you!

-> We WILL be making Thanksgiving Special Breads, we will post the menu soon! <-

Bread: We will be doing a full bake of all our regular loaves on Saturdays only. We will deliver bread to locations in Deer Isle, Blue Hill, and Ellsworth (see below for details). Also, don’t miss out on the two winter farmers’ market we attend on Saturdays, in Blue Hill and Belfast. They are both extraordinary.

Are you the type of person who buys bread a few times a week? May we suggest you get double on Saturday, and throw some into the freezer for later in the week. Some folks rave about slicing it up before freezing, so they can easily take out just what they need. And, if your bread is older than a couple days, we always recommend sprinkling a little water on the crust before it hits the toaster. Hard bread = good bread, if you rehydrate!

Pastry: We will be baking pastries on Wednesdays and Saturdays. They will be available at the same locations as the bread.

Pizza: We’re sticking with tried-and-true Tuesday nights. Call us up and order a pie for take out or enjoy it in the family-style close-but-cozy bakery seating. 5-8PM. We’ll have drinks, winter salads, and dessert on the menu all season.
