Dave’s Killer Bread

I shop local and eat local whenever I can. Today’s local adventure was a visit to Dave’s Killer Bread outlet just a couple of miles from home. Although I have bought the bread for years I had never been to the place where they make it. Dave started out selling his bread at local farmer’s markets and has now expanded to include Costco, Fred Meyers, Safeway and many health food stores. Sold in Oregon, Washington and Idaho and I saw one store on their website as far away as Arkansas.

Dave has an interesting story and the video below is worth watching. Dave was a drug user, drug dealer, had felony convictions for armed robbery and multiple trips to prison. Dave turned his life around and is now producing “Killer” bread.

My favorite bread is the Rockin’ Rye. The bread a lone is almost a meal. It is so hearty and full of good chewy ingredients.

Rockin’ Rye. Yummmy!

  1. Rockin’ Rye is my favorite as well, and Sin Dawg, well, it’s simply fabulous. The first time I tried it was at the Beaverton Farmers’ Market roughly … I don’t know, four years ago? Dave was there selling it, and I spoke with him at length about his story. Very cool guy. It’s on the expensive side of bread, but I’m a big fan of supporting people who find their good.

    • I’ve never had the Sin Dawg. My massage therapist just told me about it Friday evening and I said I would go buy one Saturday.
      I agree with supporting people who have turned their lives around like Dave did. Way to go!

  2. We bought the bread while in Oregon a year ago, and it was so good. We ate like 4 different kinds in the week we were in Florence. We got it again this year while on vacation. We are looking for it in Las Vegas, so does anyone know where we can find it. It was at Fred Meyers in Oregon that we found it.
