Fresh with a capital F

Where else can you go where the moment you walk in the door people are offering you free food? The samples are amazing, the folks are friendly and the price is right. Everyone loves Great Harvest!

Our family loves the products from Great Harvest. We usually gat a regular life of white bread each week and another "sweeter" bread. Recently, the cherry harvest bars have been to die for. Definitely a "go to" place for breads in the community.

i have gone to Great Harvest for 20 years, and it is always top notch! Upon entering you are greeting and offered a fresh slice of your choice. There is a wide variety of whole grain, sweet, savory, loaves in different sizes, and ready made dinner (mozzarella wraps), desserts (brownies, cookies, harvest bars). there are also many gift items of...

A hearty "Hello" greats nearly every customer as they enter this bakery and the warmth doesn't stop there. Fresh samples (and by samples I really mean generous servings) of several of the days offerings are available with butter and jam on the side. Comfort food in the form of carbs are the specialty. The menu has some regular elements and... More

Walk in the door and you get a free sample. Makes you want to buy even more. But arrive early in the day for the best selection - favorite flavors sell out early.

The bread is awesome here! Even their plain white bread is great! You really can't go wrong with anything here, the people are nice and they use all natural ingredients!

It's such a happy place to go in to. You are offered a free slice of bread the second you walk through the door. The bread is delicious and fresh. The employees obviously love their job. The cinnamon bread is good....I recently used the potato chive to make a muffalotta and it was a hit.

Oh my gosh this is totally addicting. I also love the cheese garlic bread and the whole grain bread with all kinds of seeds. If you go they will give you huge slices to try with fresh room temperature butter, as many as you want to try. They have a rewards program where you can earn a loaf of bread... More
