Organic + sustainable bakery


There is something beautiful in the way community forms around coffee, and good food inspires good conversation. We opened our bakery in Essex, MA with the intention of offering our neighbors a place to get a simple but beautifully made cup of coffee, a delicious treat to nibble on, and a space to come together. We believe in purposeful consumption, and hope to provide our customers a product and business approach they can feel good about supporting. We are female-owned, source local and organic, and a Surfrider Foundation Ocean Friendly Restaurant.


This is a part-time position. Due to the seasonal and event based nature of our business, hours might fluctuate. An ideal candidate will be able to offer some flexibility in their work day. The morning baker may occasionally be asked to work a longer shift due to staffing needs or an event deadline. Additional hours will be compensated, and Mayflour will make every effort to reduce hours elsewhere in the same pay period.

The morning baker will work closely with business owner on daily production. This position has the opportunity to become a growth position with training, leadership and business development responsibilities if a candidate is interested.
