I just moved into the area and am looking for local artisan breads. Any suggestions of a place nearby?

        But it's not far from Armonk, which has no good bread places.

      There is a lot of great bread in Northern Westchester, which is what the OP requested. Specifically, I recommend that you try the farmers' markets in Briarcliff and Mt. Kisco, where you can find EXCELLENT bread from Bobolink (Briarcliff) and Bread Alone (both). Grab some cheese from Bobolink too and you will be in heaven. As far as bakeries in general go, I love La Tulipe (brioche, beignets, croissants, cookies etc.), although I honestly can't remember if they sell loaves of bread. Maybe someone else can chime in.

        La Tulipe has an excellent crusty baguette - it's best eaten straight with butter - it's not the best for sandwiches (in my opinion) as it's VERY crusty. But SO tasty..

        We also buy a fair amount from the A&P in Mount Kisco, particularly the baguette and the roasted garlic loaf. And there are some good loaves to be had at Mt. Kisco Seafood. I concur with the Bread Alone recommendation above - you can also get that at Mrs. Greens.

        Don't laugh but Turcos' in Yorktown has some great breads - crusty sour doughs and lots of others. Very fresh and yummy.

            Agree--Turco's breads are generally very good, and their baguettes are wonderful. I also love Bobolink.

                I believe that Turcos bakes their bread on premesis

            Try the Farmer's Markets, esp., Pleasantville, for Bread Alone and Meredith's Bread.

              In Armonk is a farmers market every Thurs. You will get the best bread there (3-7 pm) On Sat in Pleasantville, near the train station, also good bread.
