Yeast has become a hot commodity right now, as people are turning to baking while staying at home. For those who can’t find that essential baking ingredient at supermarkets and grocery stores, Eater put together a quick list of restaurants selling the product through their marketplaces, as well as places selling sourdough starters.
As with most businesses right now, products might be sold out or restaurants might close, since things are constantly changing.
Crema Bakery & Cafe: The restaurant’s marketplace features yeast — both eight-ounces of active dry and one-pound of instant — plus flour for curbside pickups placed online and Favor deliveries. There are limits of one yeast and two flour purchases per day. (9001 Brodie Lane, South Austin)
Dai Due: The butcher shop is selling four-ounce dry active yeast as well as flour (wheat and all-purpose) through its web store for in-person pickups through its walk-up window. (2406 Manor Road, Cherrywood)
Great Harvest Bread Company: The Austin location of the bakery chain is selling instant yeast by the pound, as well as all-purpose and whole wheat flour for pickups and deliveries. (1110 Old Walsh Tarlton, West Lake Hills)
Jester King Brewery: The Hill Country brewery’s got 100-gram sourdough starters, pounds of bread yeast, and convenient sourdough bead-making kits available for pickups. (13005 Fitzhugh Road, Hill Country)
