We really enjoy the fresh sourdough and olive bread each time we come to the Union Market in Washington DC. We always get some fresh vegetables, an assortment of interesting cheeses, and a condiment or two (don't give us that look... mayo is a good thing!) and we're set for lunch all week!


Great bread and great prices! I've been buying their bread for years and have never been disappointed. I prefer to buy in Union Market because I believe it's fresher, but I have also purchased from Glen's Market in Shaw. Sometimes the selection is slim later in the day on weekends so get there early if you need something specific.


Last month, we welcomed a group of visitors from St Ann’s Center for Children, Youth and Families. You might recall that CNN featured a short piece on this marvellous organization earlier in the summer.

Sister Mary, along with some of the current residents, spent an hour touring the bakery, seeing exactly where their bread comes from: how it’s made from the start of the process, right through to it being packaged.

Perhaps we even planted a seed or grain in the minds of the young ladies as to a future career? We hope so!
