Reporter Food: Sunflour Bakehaus in Downtown Farmington

Reporter Food: Sunflour Bakehaus in Downtown Farmington

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Oct. 15, 2020)

Farmington, MI- When reporter Lara Mossa wrote about the mural on the side of Sunflour Bakehaus in Downtown Farmington, and the artist MaryLou Stropoli, it got me hungry to check out the baked goods inside.  It was a visit that did not disappoint.

While I came too early for the day’s fresh breads – which don’t get brought out until after 10 am –  I was able to snag a loaf of perfectly made white bread from the previous day, and a few other treats.  The molasses cookies were especially tasty, and I also enjoyed the carrot raisin walnut bread.

Different days have different breads. On Thursdays, for example, there is Persian Bread, Focaccia, and Old World Bread. On Saturdays there are the most choices, including Whole Wheat, Whole Grain Onion Dill, Whole Grain Seedy Flax, and Parmesan Garlic Breadsticks. They also carry an assortment of pastries like scones, cinnamon buns, and scones.

Sunflour Bakehaus also had items for sale from local artists, as well as a basket of locally-made face masks from the nearby KickSTART Gallery sewn by made by local Farmington Hills artist Molly McNeece.

Their website tells a bit about the history, stating “More than 70 years ago, Farmington Bakery opened for business in the small town of Farmington, Michigan. Over the years, as time has passed and the bakery has switched hands from one owner to the next, the varieties of breads and pastries have evolved to meet the changing tastes of our local community. In the more than 10 years that we have owned the bakery, we have seen, and welcomed, the shift toward adding more whole grains, healthy fruits and nuts and honey into our collective diets. With that in mind, as Sunflour Bakehaus, we have created a line of healthier breads and baked goods using these ingredients while continuing to bake many of the treats people had come to know and love from the old Farmington Bakery.”

Sunflour Bakehaus is located at 33250 Grand River Avenue. Find out more at Read more about the mural in our previous story.
