The 8th Annual Summer Loaf Bread and Artisan Food Festival is coming right 
up on Saturday, August 7 from 8:30 a.m. through 2 p.m.  Operated in 
connection with the Portland Farmers Market and co-produced by the Market 
and Bread Bakers Guild of America, this year's event is a "can't miss" for 
serious home bread bakers and professionals alike.  Summer Loaf remains the 
largest event of its kind in the United States.  And if you thought it 
always rains in Portland, this is our chance to prove you wrong.

Highlights of the festival include The Guild's 'The Baker is IN' booth, 
dozens of bakery and specialty artisan foods vendors, wood oven baking 
demos by Guild members throughout the day, and back by popular demand, the 
Amateur Baking Contest sponsored by Bob's Red Mill. There will also be a 
Master Class, taught by expert bakers Craig Ponsford and Mike Moran, right 
after (and just a few blocks away from) the event at the brand new location 
of the Western Culinary Institute.  Class space is strictly limited, so 
contact the Gina at the Guild (info@bbga.org) to sign up.

The Guild has kindly made special arrangements with The Heathman Hotel 
(just a short walk from the Market) for rooms at a rate of $130 per 
night.  The rooms at this rate are available on a first come, first served 
basis, so book now.

We look forward to seeing our friends from the Bread Bakers list at Summer
