Fry’s Bakery is a small family-run wood-fired sourdough bakery in the Vic West neighbourhood of Victoria, B.C. We use organic freshly stone-milled flours and only the best locally-sourced ingredients to make our long-fermentation sourdough breads, pastries, and pizzas. We are a community supported business, supplying handcrafted foods to our lovely neighbours and a select few shops and restaurants around the city. You can find us in our shop at 416 Craigflower Rd, Wednesday to Sunday, at the Moss St Market on Saturdays, April-October from 10-2, and at the Esquimalt Farmer’s Market on Thursdays, May-September from 4:30-7:30.
Fry’s Bakery was started in Moosejaw SK in 1897 by Byron’s great-great-grandfather, Charles Fry. In the 1920s, the Frys relocated to Vic West, where they opened the bakery at 403 Craigflower Rd, across the street from our current location. The shop was a community staple in Victoria until its closure during the second world war.
In 2010, unaware of this family history, Byron built a wood-fired oven on a trailer and began baking bread for farmer’s markets. While looking for a business name, the original Fry’s logo and family photos were discovered. The historic connection came full circle in 2012, when Fry’s leased the storefront at 416 Craigflower Rd and opened the shop kitty corner to its historic location.
