    Zomick's is available at many locations, most notably Fairway. I think Kosher Marketplace has another brand as well.

      Zomicks seems to be a mixture with a high percentage of white flour to whole wheat. Eagles' in Brooklyn and Yossi's have really, really good whole wheat. Weiss' bakery on 13th Avenue has a dense whhole wheat that might be the real thing. Fairway bakes them only for Rosh Hashana

      Not sure if it's kosher, but it is pareve - Healthy Delites whole-wheat challah is sold in some groceries, such as Garden of Eden.

        The Whole Wheat Challah at Silver Moon Bakery- Broadway and 106 (ish) is TO DIE FOR. I'm pretty sure its Dairy, though.

          I don't think Silver Moon has WW Challah on a regular basis. However, I'm fairly sure it's pareve.

            Schreiber's on Avenue M makes 100% whole wheat challah, but honestly, it's not that tasty.

              I will say this - Meir's Bakery on Avenue J and E 14th St has excellent multigrain challah. It includes oats, bran, rye, but no wheat. Very tasty.
