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. We offer 3 sessions each year: Winter Shares for 20 weeks from January-May, Summer Shares for 20 weeks from June-October and Fall Shares for 9 weeks from late October-December.
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. We also offer several convenient pick-up locations: West Olympia, Downtown Olympia, East Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, Yelm and at the bakery near the Olympia Airport.
