Vendors Over 60 vendors await you at the Artisan Bread Fair. Please see the list below, continually updated.

Delicious breads and pastries, handmade pizza baked in a wood-fired oven, the best books and equipment for baking at home, professional bakers to answer your questions, live music, antique baking tools, beautiful kitchen linens, scythes and other tools, tips from King Arthur Flour experts about the use of their various baking flours, demos, and  superb Maine made foods.

The Maine Artisan Bread Fair is likely to be one of a kind. It is a fair dedicated solely to Real Bread and everything associated with this most ancient and central staple It has been around for five years and has grown each year. We had a record crowd in 2014, the most vendors ever, and the widest variety of wares. Demonstrations range from scything to bread baking. You can even try your hand at milling flour by pedaling a bicycle. A children’s area was launched last year, and we’ve got plans in the works to make this space even more enticing. When you’re not checking out the booths enthralled by the wares, you can tantalize your taste buds as you sample foods ranging from pizzas cooked in wood-fired ovens to tacos in tortillas baked fresh on-site, and even sweet pastries.
