Favorite bread in the neighborhood
« on: January 10, 2019, 11:11:35 PM »
Besides the fresh bread I've bought at Cannelle and the greenmarket, I've just discovered a new favorite loaf. It's a seed and grain bread from the health food market. The label shows it comes from New Warsaw Bakery in Middle Village.



Anyone have other favorites?

Check out littlewildbranchbakery.com. Kim sells bread at The Queensboro, I've had a couple of sourdoughs and a chocolate babka. All have been absolutely great.

Appetito, which is closing as soon as the owner (the blonde lady who's always there) can sell it, has some good ryes and coarse breads. Variety, up on Northern and 81st (80th?) has a decent Italian loaf, but I'd love a warm, out of the oven, hero some days.

Lemon Farm carries (though somewhat irregularly these days) French and Italian style breads that I like.

Thanks for mentioning Little Wildbranch -- is it only available through the CSA or can I just one loaf ad hoc?

Nope, she sells loaves at the Queensboro on the days listed on the website. You can reserve one or just show up and see if there's anything that hasn't been spoken for.

Thanks for posting about Little Wildbranch. I started following her on instagram and this is what was posted today.

Perchance is wildbranchbakery posting here two years ago as JA?

would anybody be interested in buying homemade loaves? I used to bake several loaves a week but most of it went to waste. Typically I do french baguettes, pretzel rolls, or seeded rye. I also have a sourdough starter that I tap into for special occasions, though my loaves from that are not as consistent.

I ask because I dearly miss an olive bread--soft, moist, an olive in every bite--that I used to purchase at Downtown Natural. (The line also had a pretzel roll.) It's been many months now that I can no longer find it or anything similar, anywhere.

Thank you, Shelby2, for starting this thread.

I don't think it's the same person. Why not try sending JA a personal message and see if he/she responds.
