Acme Edible Schoolyard loaf

This is the best whole-wheat bread I've had since Chad Robertson stopped making his, which is at least ten years ago since that was before they moved to Mill Valley. Weird shape. Great toasted.

    1. where have you seen it for sale?

      1. It's a fairly dense loaf, but yeah, it's pretty good. They sell it at the San Pablo Ave. shop in Berkeley, at least - haven't been to the SF Ferry Building store lately, so no idea if they're selling it there as well.

          Yes, Acme at the Ferry Building has it everyday. When it was first available, it was going to be a limited-time special, but it looks like it will be a permanent item.

          I like it second, to Della Fatoria's pan integrale, because the wood-burning oven adds something.

          Also, Acme in the Ferry Bldg. is now selling the seasonal pumpkin bread with walnuts and raisins.

            Every time I've been to the San Pablo store they've been out. I tried 4-5 times. I gave up.

          2. must agree that this is pretty good bread and might take my top spot amongst Acmes loaves. bought a loaf a few days ago - on the dense side, not airy. flavorful - really deep grain taste. i know for sure they sell it at the Berkeley bakery and have seen it once at the Ferry Plaza store. Dont think you can find them at farmers markets or regular markets.
