Bakery, Bread

Andy and Jackie King opened A & J King Artisan Bakers based on their mutual love for bread baking. Today, handcrafted, hot-from-the-oven breads are still the Salem bakery’s specialty. The Kings pride themselves on using local ingredients, and thanks to their fresh fruit from Brooksby Farm, milk from Richardson Farms, and coffee beans from Maine, you can taste the best of New England right in their store.
