Grand Central Bakery Wrangles Urban Rodeo Street Fest

Or, an exercise in how many rodeo/urban farming puns one blogger can rope into a post (whee!). This Saturday, the N Fremont branch of Seattle-based breadmakers Grand Central Bakery throws its first annual Bakery Fair, "an urban farming expo and bicycle rodeo" that brings old-school country fair activities (like baking and preserving contests, farming seminars, and produce judging) to the cafe's Boise parking lot. The Grand Central staff will cook up a special BBQ menu in addition to hosting baking and cheese-making demos and seminars, while a talk by urban farming expert Novella Carpenter and a bicycling rodeo (complete with a costume contest for your wheels) round out the day. All proceeds will benefit Zenger Farm and the Community Cycling Center.
