About the Bakery
D'argent Bakery is a woman-led and home-based French micro-bakery, located in the Longfellow neighborhood in South Minneapolis, MN. We offer small-batch bread and pastry subscriptions in order to provide our community with delicious and nutritious baked goods.
At the bakery, we use natural leaven* along with slow fermentation to make our breads, as well as organic ancient grains and flours for their health attributes and exceptional flavor. We mill all of our grains in-house using a stone-ground mill, only hours before the bread is made. All of our country breads are made with a minimum of 30% whole grain.
Our viennoiseries, or French pastries, are hand-laminated and made from scratch using organic ingredients, natural leaven, and a small amount of commercial yeast.
The bakery has a cottage food license and is registered with the Department of Agriculture. All of our breads and other baked goods are handmade with love in a home kitchen, so these products are not subject to state inspection.
*by natural leaven, we mean sourdough, which is 100% natural.
