The Coronavirus pandemic has made bakers of all of us, partly out of boredom, partly out of the inevitable carb cravings that come with stress. While run-of-the-mill flour brands are rarely available at grocery stores nowadays, this might be the perfect time to try the healthier local flours from artisan makers.

Located in the Food Building in Northeast Minneapolis, Bakers Field is small batch bakery that produces its own milled-to-order flour on granite stone mills from Midwest-farmed single-origin whole grains. A minimum purchase of two bags can be shipped for $7 per bag. Local customers can pick up orders at Kieran’s Kitchen in Food Building). Four-pound bags of flour are also stocked at Kieran’s Kitchen but sell out quickly.
