A light at the end of the tunnel


We are trudging right along this winter. Lent starts on Wednesday (paper day) this week so that means six weeks till Easter and hopefully warmer, drier weather. We are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel I think. Can’t wait for that!

We are now approved to accept EBT SNAP payments. Transportation is a barrier for some in the neighborhood. We have fresh veggies and fruits along with some staple foods. Our grocery section is small but folks can get cold salads and cold sandwiches and take pizza home to bake for themselves. Fresh bread and bakery items can be purchased also. Thanks for all your support and for shopping locally. We appreciate your business. If you have a special hard to find favorite you can order it from us. Call (971) 867-4337.

Watch the Black Sheep Facebook page for new offerings and products. We have new Black Sheep t-shirts and aprons for sale. The slogan on the back of the shirt says “Wood fired hearth and soul”. T-shirts are $20 for S-2LX and $22 for 3XL. Two pocket aprons are $18.

Friday Nite Supper Club: Featured musicians play two 45-minute sets starting at 7:00 and ending at 9 p.m. and play a variety of genres. Aspiring musicians and veteran musicians are always welcome to show up and perform. There is a 30-minute break between sets and open mic players are always welcome to fill that time frame. It’s fun to play or listen. There is no cover charge so it’s a laidback easy crowd to play for. Come join us in supporting local live music by local singer/picker/songwriters while dining on good Black Sheep Brick Oven Bakery foods. We have some really great acts lined up through the end of the year. Dancing and singing along is encouraged.

We decided to place our unsold bread outside in coolers on Sundays for folks to take. It will be left on the outside stage until a more suitable arrangement can be made to dispense it. This preservative-free bread is delicious. We hope folks come and take it on Sunday. It will keep almost a week at room temperature. It will feed the belly and feed the soul. If you are hungry show up early so you can get a loaf. We want you to have first pick.
