We are a community of 300 dreamers, builders, and changemakers. Sacramento’s largest coworking community is made up of more than 300 entrepreneurs, designers, coders, creatives, and changemakers who make our world better with the companies they build, the people they help, and the products they create.
The Mill at Broadway is an urban community inspired by the idea of living connected, untethered, and free, regardless of what walk of life you are on. Our vision is to bring a unique community to Downtown Sacramento that will literally redefine what it means to be a homeowner
Coffee is meant to be enjoyed, so you should drink it however the heck you want. We’re here to be your best route to coffee the way you love it, however that may be.
Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op is here to provide the benefits of natural foods and products, economic cooperation, and sustainable practices to as many people as possible in the communities that we serve. We also want to be a trusted source of natural foods and products, a reliable resource for consumer information, and provide excellent customer service and a friendly and welcoming environment to all.
GOOD BREAD. BAKED WITH CARE.
Bread is shaped by the environment it’s baked in.
As the yeast ferments, as the bread leavens, it’s cast and flavored by the air and the environment. You can bake two loaves of bread in two different cities, using the same flour and the same recipe, and the bread will have different tastes, different qualities. And it’s shaped, too, by how it’s handled; by the craftsmanship and the care in the baker’s hands.
In this way and in so many others, Faria bread is shaped by Sacramento.
I moved to Sacramento when my wife was placed here for medical school residency, and I immediately fell in love with this city and its people. We walked along the river and sat beneath the city’s trees, and we fell in love with the closeness and charm of our new community. I wanted to give back to the city the best way I knew how - by baking. I set up a small cottage bakery, joined farmers markets, and sourced as many local ingredients as I could find.
I see bread and pastry as more than a vehicle for other foods; it’s a way to build community, try new flavors, and way to bring more whole grain, healthy foods to the community.
I hope you enjoy sharing in my passion for baking.
From me to you, CHRIS B. HEAD BAKER

Muse is a fickle thing that has been lauded as a mystical source of inspiration for artists; however, Amy has found her own muse in different & often unexpected places. Despite dabbling in creative practices her whole life, Amy never considered herself a true creative and was waiting for a “magic sign” to pursue her passions — the magic came in the form of a middle school journal & a truly embarrassing story, but it started her on a path to discovering creativity she didn’t know she had. Amy will share her take on pain, joy, and permission as it relates to inspiration, creativity, and muse.
