Bakery Shares

8arms share example

8 Arms Community Bakery offers you a chance to participate in a bakery share program. Using a “community supported” model, the bakery lover can buy into a share session for 20 weeks, or occasionally 8 weeks (depending on the current share session). Each week you get a box of baked goods to enjoy. This model allows you to build a relationship with the producer of your goods. Your money is paid up front (or in a payment plan) which allows me to buy ingredients in bulk and avoid over-production. This keeps prices affordable and the money you spend goes directly into the local economy. Each week’s selections change, which allows you to try a variety of baked goods. Bakery shares come in three sizes: full, half and mini. They are available in traditional, vegan and gluten-free.

Bakery shares are available after 4:00 on Wednesdays. They can be picked up at a drop location in West Olympia, East Olympia, Downtown Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater or Shelton.
