Our Sonoma home town has limited Acme bread available so we always stop by for a load to take home. Rustic baguette and epi are favorites along with currant rolls. Pop them all in freezer for several weeks of enjoyment.

The Bay Area is blessed with incredible bakers, and this is one of the first artisan bakers that showed up years back. The ferry building inside booth offers tons of great options and they are ALL good! Their sourdough baguette is my favorite! Yum!
