The Upper Crust Baking Co. is a family-owned and -operated artisan bakery that primarily sells its baked goods at Northern California farmers markets, including the Davis Farmers Market (on Wednesdays and Saturdays), the Sutter Davis Farmers Market (on Thursdays), and many others from the Bay Area to the Tahoe region. The Upper Crust Baking Co. was founded by Mo and Trudy Kalisky in 1986 and you can still catch one or both of them at the farmers market.
All loaves are hand-mixed, hand-cut, and hand-formed. Several of the flours used are milled Woodland from Sacramento Valley wheat, and the bakery uses other local ingredients and supports local agriculture whenever possible including Mariani nuts from Winters, local honey, and Ghirardelli chocolate. The sourdough starter is based on a pure strain of Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis sourced from the UC Davis Food Science & Technology department.
Breads include the popular Rosemary Salt loaf, Birdseed (winner of the California Award from the California Raisin Growers Association), Sunberry (sourdough with sunflower seeds and cranberries), Deli Rye, and Challah, as well as several whole grain whole wheat varieties.
Other seasonal and special products include hamentashen, hot cross buns, peasant breads, apple pies, cherry pies, pumpkin pies, pecan pies, Pig Pops (for Pig Day), pumpernickel, and almond biscotti.
