A&J King Artisan Bakers, Salem  

Standout Qualities: Local ingredients throughout, like whole grains from Maine Grains, milk and cream from Richardson’s Dairy, and produce from Cider Hill Farm.

Philosophy: Honor the past. Owners Jackie and Andy King credit the traditions they are guided by, which have been around for centuries, for their acclaimed breads. 

Insider tip: Check the website for their weekly rotation—Wednesday’s cranberry walnut loaf is a favorite.

In the Works: Later this summer, the bakers plan to move production to a new facility with a small retail space, while the original location will remain, offering more seating as well as more lunch items.

48 Central St., Salem, 978-744-4881,
