Rye bread near Santa Rosa?
I'll try asking one more time--
I'm in Santa Rosa-- there is loads of corned beef and sauerkraut on sale, and there is NO RYE BREAD! Other than Orowheat or something. I think I could find a German sort of rye, but I WANT CARAWAY SEEDS!
Excuse me for yelling. I'm just going to go cry now.

You are in luck. This Chow Digest article was totally about rye bread...
...and listed phone numbers of the many bakeries that make rye. Read the raves in the Chow article, then call the bakeries raved about.
But...one important bakery is left out, and it's right in your backyard (well, Sonoma). It's Artisan Bakers, and they're pretty smart bread bakers over there.
Call them and ask them which stores get deliveries of their rye bread
(and do that with the other bakeries as well). But I'd start with Artisan and Acme.
Here's Artisan Baker's description of their Sour Rye:
"A classic European style rye complete with caraway seeds.
Gold Medal Winner – Sonoma County Harvest Fair
Unbleached hi-protein flour, water, whole wheat rye flour, caraway seed, salt."
Stores in Santa Rosa that carry Artisan breads:
G&G Market (1211 College Ave.
)Larkfield Market (522 Larkfield Center)
Oliver's Market (560 Montecito Ctr.)
Pacific Market (1465 Town & Country Dr.)
Pearson & Company (2759 4th St.)
Raley’s #313 (1407 A Fulton Rd.)
Safeway #1576 (2300 Mendocino Ave.)
Safeway #1713 (100 Calistoga Rd.)
Whole Foods (1181 Yulupa Ave.)
Source it out, tell us where you found it and what you thought. Good luck.
My report for today:
Bennet VAlley: no answer
Artisan: their rye is a sourdough with some rye flour, they said, not the deli kind.
Village Bakery: they bake a New York caraway rye on Thursdays only.
I need to make sandwiches now, so I went to Trader Joes, carefuly looking through the sell-by dates on their corn rye and hoping I'd hit a fresh one.
So wish me luck that I got the right sell-by date, and next time I'll have to time cooking corned beef around Thursdays, and see how that goes.
Bennet Valley Bakery just called back and said they make New York Rye on Thursdays. Two shots at a deli rye, and they're both on Thursdays.
The Trader Joe's was good-- I did get a fresh one, and it was definitely preferable to eating corned beef on sourdough or something Italian.
