One of the many charms of being in a small town is a sense of community. I find it easier to get to know the people around me, local businesses, local government. People tend to be more welcoming. Thus I found myself invited to do a photo shoot at the local downtown Juneau bakery Wild Oven Bakehouse.
The bakehouse is a small operation, located in the basement of another Juneau institution, the Observatory Bookstore. It’s a perfect location with roots in artisan bread-making. That small house was the site of the popular french bakery Le Petit Paris in the 1980’s.
Founded and operated by Daniel Martin, Wild Oven sells its bread throughout Juneau. A large selection of Danie’s breads can be found at the nearby Rainbow Foods. Try them, you won’t resist coming for another loaf!
