The Season of Summer


by George Kelley

Downtown Grand Forks comes alive in the summer. The cafe tables are on the sidewalk for you to enjoy a morning brunch. The bike rack is just outside our door, so you can peddle to the bakery on your jaunt through the Greenway.

The Grand Cities Art Fest is on Saturday, June 11th and Sunday, June 12th in Town Square Park and across the river in the Cabella’s parking lot. Be sure to stop by our store to cool off, have lunch, or get a refreshing beverage!

The Town Square Farmers Market starts the following Saturday, June 18th from about 9am to 2pm. We have a booth there selling our breads, cookies, and pastries. You can enjoy a snack while shopping for fresh produce and krafts. Be sure to stop by and say hello to our crew! We will be set up every Saturday through the end of September. Read More…

The Dakota Harvest vision asked the question, “What would happen if we took took these amazing local products and turned them into the best breads, cookies, cakes, scones, and other baked goods possible?”

We set the goal of sourcing 80% of our ingredients within 200 miles of the bakery. This would serve the double function of both featuring the very best of the region’s agricultural products as well as cutting down the energy impact of transporting our ingredients from long distances. And so, the hunt for local suppliers was on!blogEntryTopper Read More…
