Where to Buy Yeast From Austin Restaurants

For those at-home bakers and bread makers

Nadia Chaudhury is the editor of Eater Austin covering food and pop culture, as well as a photographer, writer, and frequent panel moderator and podcast guest.

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.

The Brewtorium: The brewpub has pounds of instant yeast and four-pound bags of all-purpose flour for sale through its web store for pickups. (6015 Dillard Circle, Highland)

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)
