What wasn't a let down was the eats, breads from many local bakeries made the place smell even more heavenly for the hungry. Strange activities like a work-out to knead the dough by putting it in bottles while pumping in an exercise class were on the top floor, while in the basement more subtle workshops on baking were going on.
One of the vendors we caught sight of was selling a strange looking jam. Indie Jams booth was being run by Nick Zayas, the husband of chef/creator Meredith Lockwood, a singer/songwriter. Nick told me a bit about the jams that go up a little notch. "Each jam is inspired by a different genre of music. So right now our flavors are: Pop, Blues and Punk." He added, "For the Summer my wife is working on a rock jam which is an apricot jam and a folk jam that we'll be blackberries and lavender." Nick explained their operation is only about a year old as they were featured at Coachella where their jams were replacing the filling of pop tarts there. You can get the jams online or in a few stores around LA, just check the above link.
Indie Jams was one of the many vendors that made us wish we planned the day around a picnic or just making a nice lunch/dinner with friends. So much good food to eat and we already made plans for dinner. When the Bread Festival returns leave your schedule empty for meals and also demand they make bigger t-shirts.
