We pride ourselves in baking with the highest quality ingredients.

No storefront, no problem

Welcome to our online bakery. Sorry you can't smell the screen, but we promise it smells really good. Having an online bakery not only reduces waste but it makes sure you always have your bread fresh. 

Order a day ahead

We believe in slow food, and we promise you it's worth the wait.


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.
