Mockingbird Bakery in Greenwood, MS, Closes

"It was really hard to make sourdough in a small town like this… And then it came around, and now it’s my most-selling bread." – Donald Bender

We're sad to learn of the closing of Mockingbird Bakery in Greenwood, MS. Today is the last day for friend, oral history subject, and baker extraordinaire Donald Bender to pull a warm loaf of sourdough out of the ovens on Howard Street.

Donald, we wish you well and hope to enjoy your bread again real soon.
