Grand Central Market is getting deep into the grain game next month with a massive two-day party dedicated to all things bread. Think of it as a harvest festival for the 21st Century.

Running on June 6 and 7, the free festival is tackling the Southern California resurgence of artisan bread-making head on. Pop-ups from well-known purveyors, hands-on workshops and panel discussions will be peppered throughout the very busy food weekend (for festival lovers, June 6 is also Tacolandia, and June 7 is Taste of the Nation in Culver City).

As expected, du jour breadmaster Clark Street Bread will be on hand baking off loaves, while even those vendors not known for their breads will be joining in. Horse Thief will be making extra cornbread, Chiles Secos will be handling handmade tortilla duty, and so on. Other local names like Grist & Toll will also be popping up inside for the two day party.

No need to RSVP or grab tickets to the free event — just show up hungry for carbs.
