  1. MJ Bread is my favorite these days, but their distribution is very limited. The only retail outlets I know of that carry their products are their shop on Roosevelt and the La Grande Orange grocery store on 40th St (@Campbell).

    1. I like the Simply Bread line. AJ's carries them and a few others. Their cheese breads are very good, as is their basic ciabatta.

      1. With Simply Bread gone, Arizona Bread Company is now our favorite. The only place I know of to get their product is at their store at Scottsdale and Shea,

        1. re: avandelay

          In the past, Arizona Bread Company also sold its products at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market on Saturday mornings. I don't look for them when I shop there, so for all I know they could still be participating. Or not. Maybe someone else here knows?

            I can't speak to the Downtown market, but I did purchase a few loaves from Arizona Bread Company this Wednesday at the Town & Country Farmers Market. I'm not usually at that market, so I can't say if they are usually there.

              They were at a farmers market on 40th and Cactus in the little park this saturday.
              Got jalapeno/cheddar and rosemary. Very good and very fresh.

                This past Saturday, Arizona Bread Company was also at the Old Town Farmer's Market in Scottsdale.

            2. I have a great interest in this thread... I think this is a huge hole in the Phoenix area... I can never find good bakery items, especially in the East Valley where I live...

              1. I really appreciate Karsh's - NEC of 7th Street and Missouri in the corner of Basha's strip mall. Great fresh breads, bagels and they even have a discount (day old) shelf.
