Atticus Bookstore Cafe, a New Haven mainstay since 1975, is making their way up to Hartford for their first Know Good Market. Atticus has been baking bread since the 1980’s, but in the past year they have reformed their recipe to include a wild yeast starter, in order to naturally leaven their breads, also known as the sourdough method. They’ve begun working with local farmers in hopes of creating a robust local grain economy, and have found varietals of wheat and rye from New England and New York that they mill fresh daily.

You can get their bread fresh from the ovens at 11:30am every morning at the cafe… and this week at the Know Good Market. They’ll be serving their square pie, assorted pastries, breads, and giant pretzels, all of which include Connecticut and New England grains and ingredients.

The Know Good Market is an open air street festival held from 5-8pm on the second Thursday of each month from April-November in the Parkville neighborhood of Hartford. It features local music, food and vendors and attracts a large crowd of locals and visitors alike. It is located at 30-50 Bartholomew Ave. Hartford, CT. There is a parking lot located across the street, bike parking and is just one block from the CT Fastrak Parkville stop.
