There are a few foods I simply couldn’t live without. Chocolate is probably number one, but coming in at a close second is bread. Luckily for me, my fast metabolism allows me to eat as much bread as I want and not worry about it. So you can imagine how excited I was when my boyfriend took me to visit a popular bakery near his house.
Not only does Rockland Bakery offer a large variety of bread and rolls, they also have a huge room full of Italian desserts and pastries, a deli and sandwich section and the best part- a walk-through of the bakery itself. With our plastic gloves and paper bag in hand, we got to see the factory where the bread is made and choose the type we wanted. Here are some photos of our trip.
Planning a Trip to Rockland Bakery
Rockland Bakery is located in Nanuet, New York (just outside of New York City in Rockland County, NY). They are one of the largest bakeries in the the Northeast, with over 100 trucks on the road and four distribution centers throughout the Northeast US. They’re open every day of the week, usually from 6:00 AM – 10:30 PM.
There are many things you can do at the bakery — stop by to purchase a pre-baked product, roam through the facility itself on a self-guided “tour” to see bread being made, or visit the deli for a sandwich made from the bread on premise. Like most large bakeries, it’s often crowded and not everything is labeled, so do yourself a favor and check out their offerings on their website or social media channels beforehand so you’re a little bit prepared.
yummy, i can smell it from here
I’m totally with you. I could eat bread all day, every day.
Ha ha, chocolate and bread are definitely at the top of my “can’t live without” list! That bakery must have had the most amazing smell!!
Oh it did. I’m going to be making a trip back there next time I’m in the area!
