East Bay Express, a regional paper, recently profiled the Arizmendi Bakeries in a piece on the real sharing economy. What have we got in comparison to AirBNB and Uber? Dignified work for working people that includes benefits and a democratic voice in the workplace!
Did you hear a radio broadcast featuring Arizmendi Bakery on Labor Day? The original radio segment, made in 2012, was re-broadcasted in celebration of Labor Day on September 1st. The interview features several of our current bakers at the bakery as well as several of the folks who were involved in starting Arizmendi in San Rafael. Give it a listen and learn more about your local co-op!

Check out this amazing independent documentary on the worker-cooperatives through the US and the Basque Country in Spain. Arizmendi San Rafael is promptly featured (you'll recognize the kitchen!).
This documentary is airing nationwide on public television channels, cooperative conferences, and film festivals - stop by the bakery if you'd like to borrow a copy from one of our bakers.
This short film is about Father Arizmendietta - a Basque priest often called the "Father of Cooperatives". Arizmendi's Secret explores the ways in which the cooperative model offer solutions to businesses and communities regarding income inequality in the US and elsewhere. Phil Murphy, a San Anselmo, California, resident and consultant to nonprofit organizations wrote, produced and directed Arizmendi’s Secret.
Check it out! Arizmendi Bakeries got a shout out in this piece written on the viability of the worker-cooperative business model in the New York Times Magazine!
