If you’ve been to any of our local farmers’ markets then the name Night Work Bread Co. isn’t foreign to you. If you haven’t, then you’re missing out on some delicious bread for dinner.
/edit Jan. 28 – Night Work Bread has announced that they will be having their soft opening along with the Ballston Spa Chocolate Fest on Feb. 3. After this event, they’ll announce their hours and when the bakery will be officially opened.
Night Work Bread Co. has been at the Schenectady Greenmarket this season and I recently had a chance to try their focaccia (tomato onion and artichoke onion) but they offer a bunch of delicious carby options. Husband and wife duo Leigh Rathner and Cindy Rosenberg are now taking the next step and opening a storefront in Ballston Spa.
The duo started the company in May 2021 after moving to the Capital Region from the West Coast. According to News10, when COVID-19 hit, they were forced to stop their regular jobs and started baking so they moved to Saratoga Springs in February 2021. The owners have been baking out of the kitchen at 9 Miles East in Saratoga Springs but find it difficult to keep that going through the winter. “Night Work Bread Co. uses all organic ingredients including whole-grain flour, eggs, and butter, said Rosenberg. There’s no dairy in their products except butter. Their products include sourdough breads, bagels, babka, cookies, cinnamon rolls, scones, and some seasonal additions.”
Once they open the storefront, they hope to expand to offer sit-down meals and offer sourdough classes. They still need to raise some money to get the equipment they need and are asking for help via Kickstarter (link here).
