The Bread Garden Bakery & Café originally opened in 1995 as an affiliate of Fresh Food Concepts, which also currently owns and operates Mondo's ReUnion Brewery, and Joseph's Steakhouse. The Bread Garden Bakery & Café thrived on the street corners of Clinton and Burlington, celebrating a calm and close atmosphere endeared by students, faculty, artists and residents alike. With its simple efficiency and modest layout, people lined up for an unrivaled quality of homemade cuisine. Following the success of the restaurant, owner Jim Mondanaro saw an avenue to other possibilities, and the result was a change in location in 2008. As the tweak in the name suggests, Bread Garden Market was something distinctively new, without straying too far from the themes of its predecessor.


There’s a reason Bread Garden Market has become the place where food lovers shop. As foodies ourselves, it’s important to us to offer high quality products that elevate and transform your traditional grocery experience.  We love the artisanal chocolate bars, heirloom beans, and boutique wines you can find throughout the store and we want to share them with you. In addition to the shelf-stable groceries lining our shelves, we take pride in the high quality of our housemade products ranging from our famous hearth bread (where do you think our name came from?) to our signature soups and sandwiches, our cold-pressed juice to our gourmet gelato.


At the Market, you’ll find a large variety of organic, conventional, and gourmet groceries. We offer everything from value priced cereal to truffle oil and everything in between.

Our full-service deli features the highest quality meats and cheeses from Boar’s Head and the selection ranges from classic smoked turkey to Italian specialties like mortadella and sopressata. You’ll find that our preference for variety carries over into just about everything we do. Our produce department is bursting with a wide variety of organic, conventional and local produce,  our meat department features fresh seafood and unique cuts of meat, and our from-scratch bakery makes bagels, fresh pasta, gourmet tortes and more!


With over 35 years of food service and restaurant experience under our belts, you can rest assured we know what we’re doing around here, and we don’t take it lightly. Our kitchens have been staffed by fine chefs from all over the country who have helped to perfect our signature recipes and aim to deliver a high-quality gourmet experience to our customers. Whether it’s a catered wedding or a weeknight dinner at home, our kitchen delivers restaurant-quality food time and time again.
