Great harvest has some fantastic bread and great sandwiches. The selection is good, but not as large as many sub shops. What you sacrifice in terms of choices is more than made up in the quality you get. The bread is comparably priced to high end loaves in similar stores and probably a dollar or two more than a grocery... More

My husband bought a loaf of cinnamon bread from the Farmer's Market in National Business Park near where he works. My daughter works nearby their location in Columbia and loves them. The cinnamon bread smelled so yummy. It was not overly sweet and it had a nice dusting of cinnamon and sugar. The price was fair. I popped the slices... More

If you want quality food this it the place to go but, I warn you it's not a $5 foot long price. The customer service is good too.

We stop in here anytime we are in the area and anytime we are in the need for really good bread (we live 20 miles away), well worth the trip. The variety of bread is fantastic and they can make you a sandwich with any of it. They also have specialty holiday and seasonal breads and baked goods that are... More

I can't believe we have this wonderful treat in our neighborhood. I adore the variety and the friendliness. All ages work here. I love that. True community. The bread is wholesome and fresh. I've had sandwiches as well as variety of loaves. I often frequent when I need a teacher or coworker gift. Samples are just as likely to be... More

My wife and I have been here numerous times over the years and have enjoyed their baked goods immensely. A couple weeks ago we picked up some Parmesan Fennel Breadsticks from the Great Harvest stand at one of the local Farmers' Markets. They were so good that we found out they make them on Thursday mornings, so we called that... More

This place has the best fresh bread. We always get the cinnamon chip bread and make French toast out of it. They also have a wonderful garlic cheese bread. Come to think of it, all their bread is good.

A friend of mine loves this place, so we got sandwiches to go one workday lunchtime. Lots of options to choose from, and the bread is of course fresh. There were also fresh pies and cookies at the counter for purchase with samples for those that are trying to decide. The sandwich was perfect, and service was pleasant and quick.

Great place to get holiday bread or treats. The place is small and they get people through the line when there is one really fast. You can call ahead and see what they have during the holidays.
