Started in 2017 as a pastry pop-up in a North Portland park, Wildflower Baking has since grown into an ever-evolving business changing with the ebbs and flows of uncertain times. Currently, we are operating as a virtual bakery with pick ups on Saturdays and deliveries on Sundays. You can see our menu and order here.
Wildflower Baking is an unconventional bakery dedicated to changing the way people approach food. Locally sourced and mindfully crafted food builds strong communities and healthy people. By nourishing and educating our customers, we hope to make food transparency the norm.
Our ingredients are the backbone of every menu item and pastry that we make. We focus on using whole grains that have been fermented with sourdough to make them easily digestible. Most of our flour is sourced from Camas Country Mill. They freshly mill their flour using grains grown in the Pacific Northwest. Read more about the benefits of sourdough and freshly milled grains here.
The vegetables and fruits that we use are sourced from farms in Oregon. We have long standing relationships with many farmers and are proud to support sustainable agriculture practices. Read more about our ingredients.
not a brick & mortar
Wildflower Baking has explored many opportunities for growth and have found that a storefront is not right for us. While we want to have our pastries and sandwiches widely available, we have found that the overhead cost and emotional toll of running a brick and mortar bakery would force us to make compromises personally, financially and professionally. Our commissary kitchen is in downtown Portland, Oregon. We'd love to have you stop by to pick up some pastries! You can see our menu here.
Our business model is different than the classic neighborhood bakery yet our goal remains similar: feed the people by connecting them to the land they live on.
