These are all the links to sites and news related to community ovens that I have been able to find.

If you know of any that are not in this list, please let me know about them.

If you run a community oven, and you are willing to share information about it, I would be very happy to have a picture and a description of your oven, its location, and its schedule, which I would then add to the main community oven page.

One important distinction to keep in mind is that a community oven is not necessarily a public oven. Each organization that runs a community oven is allowed to determine the policies for it, including who gets to use it.

Some community ovens might also be park ovens, which is to say that the oven is in a public park. There still may be rules about who can use the oven, but it is possible that the range of potential users might be wider than for community ovens.

“Community” does not equal “public.”


I have created a map of community ovens in the US.

Community Ovens

These are ovens shared by some community currently. Frequency of use can be as low as annually and as high as weekly. The community may be small or large. Some ovens in gardens might also function as community ovens, so looking at garden ovens under cob and brick ovens might be worthwhile.

The Tender » ‘Fresh from the Oven’ at the TL National Forest
I’m sure that by now you’ve already noticed that we’re huge fans of the Tenderloin National Forest, as we think it’s one of the best things that has happened to this neighborhood. There are many reasons to love them madly, but today I discovered a new one: they have a pizza oven! And they use it every so often when they have an art opening, community gathering, concert or party.
The Tender » Our Daily Bread
For the past year or two, dancer and choreographer Amara Tabor-Smith has been hosting peculiar food parties of sorts in various places, including the Tenderloin National Forest. Back in September, I had the pleasure of meeting her there in one of them, which she dubbed “Fresh from the oven” because of the outdoor pizza oven which is a community oven for the neighborhood’s enjoyment.

Carbondale Community Oven - Home
In the short few weeks since the Carbondale Community Oven got off the ground, we're making progress. We've found a magnificent, centrally-located site, at the new Third Street Center, located in the former elementary school, an easy walk from the center of town with bike path and highway access as well. Sitting at the foot of Mount Sopris, the oven will be located in the common area, with plenty of room for landscaping, picnic tables, and even a playground for the kids. At least one of the resident nonprofit organizations in the center has expressed an interest in working with us to create a wood-fired baking project for kids.

Experimental Station, Hyde Park/Woodlawn, Chicago | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Submitted by Annie L. When I took this picture, I had stumbled upon the end of a "Bread Bake," and there were a couple of guys playing soccer in the driveway while the others cleaned up from an afternoon of baking goodies in Experimental Station's brick oven. You never know what sort of event will happen next at Experimental Station; the farmer's market brings crowds that fill the streets on Saturdays, Backstory Cafe attracts lingerers over coffee or weekend brunch, and Blackstone Bikes is always overflowing with the energy of kids playing and machines springing to life. I made a point to visit the first day I moved to Chicago, and I sat for hours under the trees in the garden, chatting with the chickens and neighbors who had also come to pass a beautiful afternoon outside. Almost a year later, it's still where I go to get my hands greasy in the bike shop, to see unusual events, to find a welcoming environment, and to spend time with friends, young and old, from all walks of life. Bridging Woodlawn and Hyde Park neighborhoods at E 61st St and Blackstone Ave, Experimental Station is accessible via plenty of buses and the Metra South Shore trains, and the space hosts numerous plays, concerts, lectures, and other public events year-round.

Community Oven - Hampedia
The Community Oven was built in the Spring of 2009 by Evan Thaler-Null and Felix Lufkin. It is a wood-fired baking oven that is open to the public to use at any time. The oven was constructed out of natural and scavenged materials including: clay dug from the Connecticut River, sawdust from the mill on Route 9, crushed stone from the quarry on Mount Norwottuck, manure from Bay Road, and lots of found parts, pieces, and buried treasures from the nooks and crannies of Hampshire campus. The oven dome is made out of a natural building material called Cob.

Ray Werner Bricks for Bread (The Pittsburgh Community Brick Oven Project) (2009) bricks, bread, firewood This installation will let you feel of the embrace of a brick oven and imagine what it can do for your neighborhood, your community. Our gesture will give you a chance to help build the next community brick oven in Pittsburgh by your contribution of a brick in exchange for a loaf of bread (on opening night and the following Saturday mornings). You will see the oven at its beginning and get a sense of what it looks like, how it goes together, how it works, what it can accomplish. This installation is in memory of the late Antonio Branduzzi, baker, teacher, friend and master of the brick oven. Ray spent most of his career in advertising, was elected to the Ad Federation Hall of Fame, and still works as a writer and creative consultant. His business card reads, “Writer, Baker, Music Maker,” and he preaches “The Pursuit,” to anyone who will listen. One of those pursuits is the Community Brick Bread Oven and how it brings folks together. Folks like you.

The driving force behind the community oven that opened last summer in Braddock, he's now hoping to collect enough bricks, from all over the region, for the next of what he hopes will be a series of ovens.

He's "built" the beginnings of an oven as his part of "Gestures: An Exhibition of Small, Site-Specific Works," which opens tomorrow at the North Side's Mattress Factory.

When Canadian Shauna Kearns came to Pittsburgh last fall for Chatham University’s two-year masters program in food studies, she assumed all cities had a web of community ovens where people lined up to bake bread — just like Toronto, her hometown. “Or maybe I didn’t realize how important it was for me to cook in an outdoor wood oven,” she says. “I grew up in a family that treasured the outdoors,” says the 25-year-old, who played goalie on McGill University’s field-hockey team while earning an undergraduate degree in business. She twists her honey-blonde hair in a work-friendly braid and wears shades that, when doffed, reveal a raccoon-style tan and ready-to-laugh aquamarine eyes. “The first time I baked bread, I just fell in love with the process.” She had to cross a river to find herself

Community Ovens - posted in Explore Crete: Does anyone know of any "community ovens" in any village in Crete where women bring their bread to one central, outdoor location to be baked? I would appreciate details on the location, if the women bring the bread to a baker, or if they bake the bread themselves. Thanking you in advance. Aurelia
