More Blue Oven in Blue Ash!

2348311_Blue Ash Farmers Market.jpg

As May progresses we’re moving to more and more outdoor markets, and this week we’ll return to one of our summer locations, and it’s one of our favorites! We’ll be back in Summit Park for the Blue Ash Farmers’ Market starting at 3:30 on Wednesday! It’s a great spot for a farmers’ market and to spend some time in the sun, so come see us every week this summer!

We’re also adding a bread delivery to a great fruit and vegetable market in the Blue Ash area every Saturday! Some of you may have noticed, but we’ve been there the past few weeks, but we’re looking forward to continuing to add to your Blue Oven options throughout the week!

Don’t forget to visit our Findlay Market location during the week! We’re open Tuesday through Sunday! Tuesday through Friday we have limited bread options, English Muffins and our Toast Bar menu with new items hitting throughout the fresh season, and then we continue our standard Saturday and Sundays at Findlay Market with all of your favorites.

Moving Outside, Anderson Farmers' Market, Reminder Findlay Market Hours Expanded

39267465_2085588581453188_6530067847341670400_n.jpg

The warm spring weather has finally arrived, and we’re starting our transition into outdoor markets this week. We kicked off the outdoor season at the Loveland Farmers’ Market on Tuesday, and we’ll continue our moves outdoor today with the Northside Farmers’ Market hitting Jacob Hoffner Park for the first time in 2019! To continue our moves, we’ll be starting a brand new Saturday market for Blue Oven with our first week at the Anderson Farmers’ Market at St. Timothy’s Church on Beechmont Avenue!

Don’t forget, we’re now at Findlay Market on all regular business days, limited bread throughout the week with English Muffins and our Toast Bar menu, and our full slate on Saturday and Sunday! Head on out to see us!

Some Kind Words from Findlay Market!

59219951_10156163625396016_8428595717483790336_o.jpg

Husband and wife duo, Mark and Sara Frommeyer, are farmers by trade and artisan breadmakers by design. “Thirteen years ago my wife and I felt that there was a need for better bread—bread that is fresh, organic and locally sourced,” says Mark. Since their epiphany, the two have been cultivating and revolutionizing the bread-making scene in Cincinnati. 

Before Blue Oven Bakery “was a thing,” the pair solely owned and operated their family farm located about thirty minutes outside of the city off of Ohio State Route 32 in Williamsburg where they organically grew (and continue to grow) crops like wheat and tomatoes. In order to focus their attention on breadmaking, the couple took an entire summer off from farming and dedicated months to refining their bread. Mark built a wood-fired oven on the farm—adorned with, you guessed it, blue tiles Mark found at a garage sale while passing through Cleveland—and the rest is history. 

“We are at fourteen farmers markets around Cincinnati, including Findlay Market. A large portion of our ingredients are sourced straight from our farm, like our organic grain, but since we have expanded, it’s been challenging trying to source everything locally. We do our best to buy local, in-season produce from other farmers at the farmers markets.” Some of their best sellers include English muffins, their Bad Boy Sourdough and sweet and savory croissants.

In recent months, Mark and Sara have taken on several new, expansive projects simultaneously. The first big project is happening directly on their farm. “We bought a second farm that is going to be open to the public. We want to create an ‘agriculture tourism’ experience for folks. They’ll be able to pick veggies and take in-depth tours of our milling and baking processes.”

The second big project is, as you may have noticed, is taking place right here at the Market. They are building in an oven so they can make and bake their bread in-house.

“We’re really excited about this. We wanted to expand both our rural and urban locations.”

Mark and Sara are wholly devoted to their craft and staying true to their roots. “We want people to know we are committed to being the urban producer of hand-crafted, organic, locally-made bread for Cincinnati. We’ve turned down many opportunities to expand because we always want to be accessible to the public and provide a quality product.” 

Blue Oven Bakery is a wonderful marriage of farming and food. Mark and Sara’s dedication to revolutionizing the baking game is unparalleled. Find their products all over Cincinnati at various markets and restaurants and be sure to check out their new farm when it opens!

Going Outside! Madeira Farmers' Market!

Madeira.jpg

Great news Blue Oveners! This week marks the first outdoor market for the Madeira Farmers’ Market in 2019! We can’t wait to get back to our spot in downtown Madeira! Don’t miss out Cincinnati! Other markets are moving outside in the coming weeks, but coming the first full week of May we’ll be outside in Loveland and at the Northside Farmers’ Market!

A reminder with our outdoor markets: we ARE rain or shine! No matter the weather we will do our best to make it work to bring you all your bread needs all year long!

Also a reminder, we’re now at Findlay Market every day but Monday during regular Findlay Market hours! Support our expanded hours! Head on out this week!

FINDLAY MARKET EXPANSION! NEW HOURS START APRIL 23!

IMG-1589 (1).jpeg

As many of our Findlay Market customers may have seen or heard rumors of, there are changes happening down at our stall in OTR. We can finally announce one of the first changes to our downtown location, and that’s with changes to our schedule. On April 23 we will begin a full week schedule, from Tuesday to Sunday we will be open during regular Findlay Market hours. From Tuesday through Friday you can expect English Muffins, and a limited bread menu as well as our Toast Bar offerings, and then you’ll get all your Blue Oven favorites throughout the weekend as usual. On top of the changes to the schedule, we have more improvements coming soon, and construction will be ongoing for exciting new Blue Oven opportunities at Findlay Market beginning tentatively in June 2019. We’re excited to bring even more availability to our OTR location, and we can’t wait to share even more about what’s next!

In Case You Missed It! Blue Oven and Puig

IMG-9489.JPG

As the years have gone on, we’re always astounded by the opportunities Blue Oven Bakery has been presented. We’re incredibly grateful that people continue to recommend us for events that are going to help those in and around the city of Cincinnati! Last week was no different when we had they opportunity to work with one of Cincinnati’s newest heroes! Yasiel Puig’s Foundation invited us and several other local food creators to provide refreshments for a special meet and greet with the Cincinnati Reds slugger, and we loved being able to lend a hand, and also enjoy a great event! Blue Oven All-Star Jack Frommeyer got to meet and compete with Yasiel, and he had a blast! We look forward to working with Puig in the future as well as the new event opportunities that will present themselves to us down the road!

Cincinnati Magazine Great Bakeries!

Cincinnati Mag.jpg

Though we fully recommend tracking down the physical copy of the Great Bakeries issue of Cincinnati Magazine we also wanted to share their mention of Blue Oven alongside some of the best bakeries in the city. Take a look at the article online here! A lot of great bakeries doing a lot of great work in the city of Cincinnati, and we’re proud to be mentioned as one of your favorites!

Know Your Bread: Miche

51103702_2331104806901563_374702627759325184_o.jpg

It’s been awhile since we’ve given you a deeper look at one of our signature sourdough loaves, so this time we thought it best to introduce you to one of the most important breads on our list. Most of our sourdough as is the case with many bakeries is a mixture of flours, but there’s one bread on our list that truly stands apart—our Miche. The Miche is our whole-wheat sourdough, and it’s that simple. Whole-wheat flour, salt, water, and sourdough mixed together into dough, shaped in large boules and baked in our wood-fired ovens. You can find the whole-wheat sourdough at most of our weekly markets, and it’s a good thing too because it pairs well with any meal! Go grab one this week, you won’t regret it!

This Valentine's Day: Get Some Sweet Croissants for Your Sweet

Bread and holidays go hand-in-hand, and at Blue Oven we LOVE that. The Holiday spirit is high once again for our upcoming celebration of those we love the most, and the people we love the most are our customers. We’re putting together some holiday themed-croissants so you can give some sweets for your sweet this Valentine’s Day! We’ve got a full schedule at Blue Oven this week, so take a peak and find us before Thursday! Or better late than never, hit one of the weekend markets!
