Post COVID-19, sourdough has exploded as a popular and healthier alternative to breads made with commercial yeast. During quarantine, many people enjoyed baking the bread themselves, but the process can be a bit time consuming.

So if you’re looking for some spots to quickly grab delicious sourdough, here are our top four recommendations.
