Having just recently moved from Michigan to the area I am desperate to find a real bakery. I don't want grocery chain breads, but ones that make everything from scratch.

Anyone know of such a place?

You could try these:

In Carytown - Montana Gold Bread Co.

In Midlothian - Prairie Grain Bread Co- Richmond Virginia’s premier bakery and deli for fresh, whole, stone-ground breads. (http://www.prairiegrain.com/index.htm - broken link)

YES! TRY WILLIAMS BAKERY! I really miss their Butter Loafs!! Not sure what area of Richmond your in but they have several locations. I use to frequent the one in the Hanover Commons Shopping Center but they are all good!! If you click their price list you will see what they have to offer.
Williams Bakery, Inc

There is this thing called google.

You can enter your address and then click maps.

Then you can search near your address with words such as "food, pizza or even bakery"

It shows you their location and the distance from your address.

Welcome to Virginia, sweet heart.

Wow that was a little cocky.. Sounds like she wanted a locals prespective on it because sometimes that information is more useful than what you get on google.

Thank you, Tee. That is exactly what I was looking for. When I Google, or try the phone book, all I seem to find are the bakeries in the supermarkets or the discount ones.

Thanks to all of you for the suggestions. I will be checking them out in the near future.

Well, bless your heart, thank you. But, that would be, "Welcome home, sweetheart." I hail from the Tidewater area.

Until someone from Google actually eats the products from these bakeries ,I think coming to this forum for personal advice is a better move. I will never understand why someone would come to a forum to do nothing more then attack someone seeking help. Don't these people have anything better else to do?
As for Bakeries ,i recommend the above mentioned Montana Gold Bread Company in Carytown and would also recommend a few blocks from them ,Jean-Jacques for pastries. This is a great place to go for dessert if you have a meal in the Carytown area and is next door to the most wonderful Chocolate store I have ever seen "For the Love of Chocolate".
Welcome back to Virginia.
