¡Hola!

We are Tamar and Elena, passionate bakers (and longtime friends) from Mexico City. Together we created Masa Madre, an artisanal bakery that blends our Mexican and Jewish heritage through flavors that are reminiscent of our youth and our grandmothers’ kitchens.

As recent immigrants, we arrived with high hopes of finding a community to welcome and guide us, however, we later realized it was us who had to build that community, and bread was the key.

Not only are our products always handmade fresh, but we are determined to implement the most ethical and sustainable practices into our business. Choosing the best quality ingredients, as well as the most eco-friendly materials for our packaging, is always a top priority.

We hope that you find a little piece of yourself in our products and enjoy them as much as we love sharing them.
