Nabolom Collective Bakery has been a worker-owned collective since our founding in 1976. We use only the finest ingredients in our handcrafted goods. We compost ninety percent of our waste and are one of the greenest food service businesses in the Bay Area (certified by Thimmakka).
The bakery’s name is borrowed from Gertrude de Blom’s organization “Na Bolom” in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. Nabolom means “House of the Jaguar” in Tzotzil, a Mayan language of Southern Mexico. The jaguar is associated in some indigenous mythologies with the origin of fire—and cooking.
