The Night Oven is a small bakery in Saskatoon that hand-crafts rustic French-inspired baking with a commitment to sourcing organic ingredients where possible, while prioritizing local suppliers to showcase what Saskatchewan has to offer.
We stone-mill locally-grown organic grain in-house to create handmade sourdough bread that is baked in a wood-fired oven. We deeply respect the traditional craft of baking and are passionate about creating good food from scratch.
We are located at 216 Avenue D North in Saskatoon.

How we got here
I built my first brick oven in 2005 with some friends while living in Montreal, Quebec. We used bricks from a dumpster, convinced a cement company to donate the cement, and built it in a public park with support of the neighbours but perhaps less from the city.
The oven we use everyday at the bakery is a fair bit more complicated and a lot bigger than that first one I built or those others since. But essentially it works the same way. Fire makes bricks hot, bricks then bake bread.
That sort of simplicity is how we approach baking at The Night Oven. We start with organic, seasonal ingredients from local producers. Then craft our breads and pastries by hand and use care plus time to create what we believe to be exceptional products. Everyday.
