[DFW] Best Bakery for Bread [DFW]

  • 1

I am looking for a bakery that has awesome bread. On a recent trip to Tulsa I found Farrell Family Organic Bread and loved all of their products. Does anyone know of a goof organic bakery in Dallas besides Good Harvest which is a franchise/chain. Also I would prefer not to go to Central Market (I have to make it challenging somehow).

  1. there's a lady that does bread at the Farmer's Market in Balch Springs (at least I think she's still there) that I seem to remember being organic. I can't say I loved the bread though, it was too dense and not quite delicious I guess, not that it was bad. But not as good as say what I can get at Voila. Can't think of anywhere else that sells local organic bread though.

      I feel the same way as you about her breads being heavy. I am looking for something that is organic, hearty but without being a brick, and very flavorful (i.e. lots of different grains, herbs, cheese or fruit inbedded)
