Where to buy sourdough online

Apr 9, 2021

What’s better than freshly baked sourdough?

How about ordering it online from your sofa and having it delivered to your door?

If you’re reading this, I don’t need to tell you about the wonders of sourdough. What you want to know is how to get more of its deliciousness in your life (without becoming a baker, although you can speak to us about that too).

Sure, it’s romantic to imagine baking your own bread, but let’s get real. When you can order artisan-quality sourdough online, why wouldn’t you?

So if that starter’s getting you down, or it never even started, don’t fret. We’ve got your sourdough cravings (read: needs) covered.

We’ve done the research to ensure your weekend breakfasts are forever-filled with the heavenly aromas and crunch that separate you from the softest sourdough in town.

You’re welcome.

CTT: Weekends without sourdough are like birthdays without cake #sourdoughsaveslives

Sourdough, stat

The weekend’s finally arrived. You roll out of bed late, do some yoga and go to rustle up some brekkie. Far from breakfasting bliss, all you can find is a frozen piece of Mighty White at the bottom of the freezer under a split tub of ice cream.

Don’t let your weekend turn down this unfortunate path – be prepared.

Your options:

  1. Make friends with your local baker (which you should do anyway)
  2. Take sourdough lessons (online or in-person)
  3. Order a sourdough starter and bake at home
  4. Borrow someone else’s starter
  5. Start from scratch and ferment your own
  6. Order your freshly baked sourdough online in advance.

Don’t get caught out. Make sure you’ve always got fresh sourdough in your bread bin.

Click away

Get your fresh sourdough to order, without lifting a finger (well OK, maybe just one).

Order online for click and collect or home delivery with these Bread & Butter Project artisan sourdough suppliers:

  1. Your nearest Woolworths Metro (good on ya’, Woollies)
  2. Harris Farm
  3. Box Fresh: 1300 735 418,
  4. Doorstep Organics: 02 8399 1666,
  5. Ooooby: 1800 774 706,

This means you can order your fresh sourdough with your regular online shop – how bloomin’ marvellous.

While you’re at it, why not check in with your local bakery or grocers too? Who knows, with enough interest, maybe they might even start up a local sourdough delivery service.

Sourdough school

Making bread is the new black. Never be out of things to talk about at that next dinner party and learn how to ‘bake it yourself’ with these awesome online classes:

Plus, watch this space for when the Bourke Street Bakery starts their legendary live sourdough classes again in 2021. They’re run by Paul Allam and his wife Jessica Grynberg, founders of the Bread & Butter Project.


Be a sourdough pioneer and order your sourdough starter online from one of these suppliers:

Cultural exchange

Make friends with someone and steal their starter culture, or ask your local baker or sourdough-toting mate if they might share some fermented love. Ain’t no harm in asking, after all.

When COVID-19 first hit, Sydney-born, New York-based Chef Xinyi Lim @megafaunafood began mailing her dried starter around the country to more-than-grateful sourdough fans in isolation.

From scratch

Order a book online, hunt one down at your local library or search through the gazillion online lessons that teach you to bring your very own starter to life.

Don’t fancy trawling through Google?

Here’s a good recipe to get you started from The Clever Carrot.

There’s no stopping you now.
