First of all they have got to keep the flies out of the glass case where the pastries are sitting uncovered, ugh. Some of the items are really, really good.

I love to stop by the Bakery at the Community Market. the breads are fresh, the pastries are light and always tasty. But, my favorite is the chocolate croissant.....it is heavenly! The mini quiche's and other breakfast pastries are worth the trip on Saturday mornings! Get there early - the line is sometimes out the door! :)

Every time we go to the market we stop to get a nice loaf of bread (and sometimes something sweet!) and we are never disappointed, we've tried many different varieties and they are all delicious.

Everything is baked fresh each day. Rustic breads and typical European style bread and pastries. Crepes are made to order. It's a family owed and run business, the only bakery of it's type in the area.

We purchased bread and pastries from this bakery twice in the last week and the quality and value is outstanding. If you purchase these items at the Saturday Farmers Market in Forest, Va. plan to wait on line more than 15 minutes. It is worth the wait!
