Columbia City Bakery CSB

Columbia City Bakery's CSB is accepting subscriptions for the upcoming months.

Based on the model of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), our Community Supported Bakery (CSB) aims to create a more direct relationship between our artisan bakers and customers. A subscription to our CSB provides you with a weekly delivery of breads and sweets, dropped off at a convenient location in your neighborhood. You can personally select the items you want, or you can let our bakers make the decisions for you with our Baker's Choice (our most popular option).

To sign up for artisan bread and sweet delivery visit ColumbiaCityBakery.com

Community Arts Create moves in to Columbia City

May 19th, 2011, CAC presents the first Columbia City Art Walk, called Artisan Alley. In keeping with the notable diversity and distinct traditions and backgrounds Columbia City is known for, Artisan Alley allows for an art experience different than any other in Seattle. Beyond traditional visual arts, the Columbia City art walk will also offer participants the opportunity to enjoy and experience the sounds, feelings, scents and tastes of artistic creation as it is expressed through music, performance, spoken word, dance, and food.

Please visit our website at communityartscreate.org and see what we're all about.
