Baker’s Bounty

“In 1978, twenty years before terms like “sustainability” and “buy local” became commonplace, Jim LaPrete set out to find a way in which he could support his family without compromising his passions for being outdoors and experimenting in the kitchen.

Today, his daughter Kim—along with her husband, her brother, and soon her own children—bakes with her father’s passion, using his original recipes, which were considered old-fashioned when he introduced them. Baking nightly and with only a forty-five minute drive into New York City, we take pleasure in providing the freshest bread and baked goods possible to our customers. We at Baker’s Bounty are very proud to be one of the original Greenmarket vendors, and we consider ourselves privileged to be part of such an essential institution.”… Read the rest

Hot Bread Kitchen

“Hot Bread Kitchen is more than a bakery. It’s a non-profit 501c3 social enterprise that enhances the future for immigrant women and preserves baking traditions. For your munching pleasure, we offer fresh breads baked with traditional recipes from around the world. We make it a priority to use local and organic ingredients.

Hot Bread Kitchen also honors the culinary traditions of peoples from all over the world. Preservation of diverse techniques and ingredients is crucial in the face of corporate globalization that tends to homogenize diversity. (Did you know, for example, that Maseca, a processed corn flour is now used widely in both tortillas in Central American and West African starches like kenkey? Its too bad, but no one is grinding corn anymore.)”… Read the rest

Astor Wine & Spirits

“Astor Wines & Spirits has always embraced our Village heritage of unconventional thinking and independent behavior. We have always honed our selections to what was best, rather than what was most popular; we never used other people’s wine ratings, but rather have always relied on our fearless wine buyers, who taste thousands upon thousands of wines each year and make selections based on their palates. And of course, we have always been emboldened by clients who share our passion for discovery and autonomy.”… Read the rest

Pain D’Avignon

The Essex Street Market
120 Essex St.
New York, NY 10002
Hours: Monday-Saturday, 8 AM-7 PM

“Pain D’Avignon uses the highest-quality ingredients (e.g. organic sugar, wild flower honey, sea salt, Greek olive oil) in its breads, which are based on labor-intensive traditional European recipes. For instance, the dough is cut and shaped by hand, and most of the breads, including even individual rolls, are made en couche–in roughwoven pieces of natural linen that help maintain their shape and moisture while slowly fermenting (prolonged fermentation creates more complex flavors).”… Read the rest
