Azikiwee Anderson, Rize Up Bakery

Saturday, June 1, 2024, 11:00 am - 11:45 am

Stop by the Foodwise Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, as part of a day of celebration at Juneteenth on the Waterfront on June 1, 2024.

Rize Up Bakery is a fast-growing San Francisco based Black-owned bakery focused on reinventing and rethinking the traditional sourdough. Founder by Azikiwee Anderson, Rize Up was born as a way to channel energy into something healing during the social unrest caused by the murder of George Floyd. Rize Up’s story began as a home-based quarantine sourdough project that quickly turned into a micro bakery in the Spring of 2020. Within a year, Rize Up outgrew Azikiwee’s backyard ovens and its trajectory has no end in sight. Azikiwee was overcome with a need to make a difference and hopefully inspire young Black bakers to think outside the traditional box. Rize Up wants change the world one beautiful loaf of bread at a time by sharing their love of delicious, thoughtfully baked breads made with naturally leavened, organic and sustainable high quality ingredients. Find Rize Up Bakery at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturdays and Tuesdays.

All demos take place in the Foodwise Classroom (under the tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
