Rye bread in West Hartford, CT?

I'm looking for really good rye bread in West Hartford. Any recommendations are appreciated!

  1. Crown Market offers up a pretty good rye bread. Not amazing but consistently good...

    1. Hartford Baking Company, on New Park, where the boat dealership used to be. Maybe 1/4 mile towards BJ's from Corner Pug, on the left. They only have the rye on Saturdays, but it's worth waiting for. The olive bread (Wednesdays, IIRC) is awesome too.

        Yeah there is a serious shortage of good rye bread in the Hartford area. It is probably my only gripe about living in this area except maybe no good deli either. I did ask a new bakery in Glastonbury if they were going to do rye but they said no, they were doing signature breads. Too bad. Fortunately I am able to get rye when I go visit family in Fairfield. My dear elderly aunt makes it a point to get two loaves (one seeded, one not) so we get it often enough. Jay

          Where in Fairfield does your aunt get the rye bread? I work in Bridgeport, so it would be easy for me to pick it up. My parents moved from the DC area to here a few years back, and my father still laments the dearth of good rye here, so I'd love to get him some.

            There's a new bakery in Glastonbury?

        2. Between Hartford and Fairfield, Brooklyn Bakery in Waterbury has great rye bread.
