Cascade Baking Company is located in one of Salem's oldest buildings in the downtown community. Originally built in 1869, the structure is an ideal location to house an old-world style brick oven and bakery. Once you are inside the delightful smells of our baked goods and breads fill the air. All our products are made fresh daily using only natural and local ingredients with no artificial preservatives.
The bakery opens at 7:00 a.m. weekdays and 9:00 Saturdays so you can enjoy our fresh brewed organic shade-grown, fair trade coffee along with our extensive collection of danish, scones, coffeecakes, and other delicious baked goods. Throughout the morning all sorts of piping hot breads come out of the hand-built brick oven. Midday deli lunches are available which includes gourmet sandwiches, veggie topped focaccias, soups, and a variety of salads all made in-house by our staff. We remain open to 6:00 p.m. weekdays and 3:00 Saturdays so folks may pick up breads fresh for dinner or evening parties.
Cascade Baking Company is committed to fostering vitality in the local economy through local purchasing. We purchase our raw ingredients from local sources thus stimulating local economies. For example, we use only seasonally fresh fruit from local farmers and honey from the Willamette Valley. We are especially pleased to use flours certified through the Food Alliance. Shepherds Grain flour is produced by a group of family grain farmers located in Washington and Idaho. This group known as Columbia Plateau Producers has developed a high gluten flour perfect for bread baking. We also purchase organic, shade-grown, fair-trade coffee from local coffee roasters, Royal Blue Organics in Eugene, Oregon, who in turn purchases the coffee beans directly from a farmer's cooperative in Chiapas Mexico.
