Red Bread closes in Culver City, says it will reopen in new location

Red Bread will close in Culver City but plans to reopen at a larger space later this year

Red Bread, the bakery known for its wild yeasted sourdough breads, is closing its pint-sized shop in Culver City. Red Bread announced the news on Monday via its social media channels on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. 

According to its posts, Red Bread is closing Monday. 

The bakery says it plans on opening at a new, larger location at the end of the year. No word where that will be. We've reached out to Red Bread and will let you know when we hear back. 

The Culver City location is just a few shelves of bread lining one of the shop's walls and two small tables that provide seating for a handful of people at a time. 

Just last year, Times' deputy food editor Betty Hallock named Red Bread as having the best rye bread in the city. Founder Rose Lawrence uses her own sourdough starter.

Red Bread started in 2012 as an online bakery service with sustainability in mind. It delivered products using two delivery bikes in Venice Beach. The company opened its storefront in Culver City in July 2013.
