  1. not in queens, but on arthur ave bronx, madonnia brothers bakery does it. across the street from domminick's restaurant ciao

    1. I've purchased proscuitto bread on Queens at the bakery on Ditmars Blvd. and 45th Street. I don't remember the name of the bakery, I'm not sure I ever knew it.

      They also make olive bread.

      1. In Whitestone there's a good fruit & vegie place with an Italian deli and grocery. They usually carry prosciutto bread, but I have no idea where it's actually baked. Still fresh though.

        Strawberry Farms @ 150 St & 24 Ave/Willets Point Blvd.

          while i haven't been there all that often since moving out of astoria a few years back, Island Bakery, on Broadway around 43rd street, did a really good lard bread on Saturdays only. I'd usually tear into the loaf seconds after leaving the place, to get the most out of the warm gooiness....

          1. In addition to the aforementioned Island Bakery, try D&F Deli on Broadway tween 35th and 36th Sts. They make a delish lard bread.
