Real Sourdough?

Hi all, I'm looking for real properly leavened sourdough in Austin. This used to be a favorite of mine, but unfortunately it seems most breads here are not properly made! Rye gets you bonus points, too.

  1. Village Baking Company as at the Barton Creek Farmer's Market every Saturday. Clint Cooper worked at Acme Bakery in SF and his sourdough is among the best I've ever had. His stand at the BCFM does not have a sign, so look for it carefully. He also makes a multi-grain boule that my friends think is equally great, but I haven't tried it yet. His croissants and cinnamon rolls are good, but not in the same league with the sourdough.

      Mmmm, thank you, that sounds heavenly. I originally planned to head to the downtown farmer's market, but I can definitely take a side trip.
