I am looking for breads in or close to Monsey, NY. I am bored of rye and whole wheat and recntly had some really great breads at a friend's house in Passaic. They have an ACME with a Pas Yisroel bakery! I was wondering if there's anywhere closer to Monsey that I can get breads like Focaccia, Jabeta, Baugettes and so on. Thank you.

    I now live near the 5 towns and work near Penn Station. Can anyone help me find great kosher artisanal bread near my home or work?

      Sometime in the next 12 months fairway is going to open in the Paramus area on Rt 17, only 20 min from Monsey with a full ,line of artisanal breads under kosher supervision. Funny how some people think that supermarket stuff from cheapo mixes is high quality bread just cos it doesn't come from a heimishe bakery.!

      You are not that far away from Bread Alone, bakers of some great whole wheat breads. www.breadalone.com

        Monsey is actually 2 hours at the least from the Albany area, where Bread Alone is located. 'Bread Alone' does sell their products at Union Square greenmarket though, which is far closer to Monsey...

        They do make pretty decent artisanal bread and they are certified by the Capital District Vaad Hakashruth [Albany]. I really like their San Francisco Sourdough.

          Bread Alone isn't in Albany; its headquarters are in Boiceville, and it has stores in Kingston, Woodstock and Rhinebeck, all of them closer to Rockland than Albany is. There website says kosher, but doesn't give the source of the hashgacha.

            You are right. It is closer to Monsey than I previously thought. I spoke to the guy at greenmarket a long time ago and asked about the hecsher and he told me its certified by the Capital District Vaad HaKashruth. I included a link to their website below...

          they have a minimum order of 6 loaves...how well do you think this would freeze? The bread looks great!

              Stop and shop breads near Manny's are pretty substandard. Kosher certified artisanal breads are quite difficult to get in New York, and I have seen none in the Monsey area.
