The Santa Fe New Mexican welcomes Wild Leaven Bakery


The full Wild Leaven Bakery experience is now available in Santa Fe. 

The mom-and-pop bakery, which has operated out of Taos since 2012, opened a shop Dec. 8 at 130 N. Guadalupe St. and is open 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.

Wild Leaven Bakery owners Andre and Jessica Kempton produce 12 varieties of sourdough breads along with a challah bread, and in Taos they also serve pastries and soups. 

Wild Leaven breads have been available in Santa Fe stores since nearly the beginning, and now are sold at La Montañita Co-op Food Market, Whole Foods, Natural Grocers, Kaune’s Neighborhood Market, Dolina Cafe & Bakery and Iconik Coffee Roasters. The pastries and soups are not sold in the stores. 

“We want to give a taste of the full table we have in Taos,” Andre Kempton said.
