Hey, Asheville, got bread?

The fifth annual Asheville Artisan Bread Festival is March 28, this coming Saturday, at Greenlife Grocery near downtown. We’re not talking Wonder bread here. Organizers say artisan bread is made by craftspeople who use baking methods that were used before manufactured yeast was available. That means the kind of bread our grandmothers made.

Asheville has a number of artisan bakeries that make breads, including whole-grain and organic. And they produce some interesting varieties: black bean bread, potato, multigrain, spinach feta, sunflower.

Asheville has some great bakeries, artisan or not. City Bakery has two locations near downtown, and Filo is a Greek bakery with a nice ambiance east of downtown. The West End Bakery and Café is in West Asheville west of downtown.

See our Web site at www.loversloopretreat.com for more information about the bread festival. We hope you’ll enjoy some local bread while you’re staying at our vacation rental, Lovers’ Loop Retreat.
