Arivaca Sourdough Bakery

Yesterday, my uncle and I stopped by the bakery. This small building is well worth visiting if you are ever in the Gadsen Purchase area. Their lemon bars, brownies and sourdough bread are all really good. The bread is especially good toasted and served with butter and prickly pear jelly.

Like most things in Arivaca it has its own unique character. In this case the numerous handicrafts from countries as far away as Indonesia for sale in front of the shop. Normally one does not expect to see a significant selection of wood carvings from South East Asia in rural bakeries in South East Arizona. But, then again Arivaca is home to an eclectic bunch of people. Many of them with specialized interests and knowledge extending far beyond the boundries of the US.
