The Traveling Baker

*Update* We are currently building our second wood-fired oven in a storefront in Vic West. Located across the street from the original Fry's Bakery, we will be opening our doors at 416 Craigflower rd in the middle of September, 2012.

Fry's Red Wheat Bread, a Victoria-based, upstart micro-bakery built around a mobile brick oven and the idea of a single baker working to create a community around great bread.

Traveling baker Byron Fry taught himself to bake 3 years ago before apprenticing at the Italian Bakery in Victoria BC. During the summer of 2010 he rode his motorcycle 16 000km around North America, visiting bakeries in Montreal, New York, North Carolina and Portland. In NC he met the baker Richard Miscovich who inspired him to come home to BC, build an oven, and bake bread. The historical name and logo of Fry's Red Wheat Bread was passed down from his great-grandfather who owned and operated a bakery in Victoria at the turn of the century.

This is our second year running the farm-based bakery operation in Metchosin. You can find Byron and his bread at the Moss St. Market Saturdays 10-2 and the Oak Bay Night Market, third Wednesdays of the month from 4-8.
