2022 Bakery / Bread

Editors’ Choice

A&J King Artisan Bakers, Salem

If there was a BONS Hall of Fame, A&J King would top the list. It is hard to compete with the bakery’s care for community and insanely good bread (we love the seeded honey oat for sandwiches). Since 2006, Jackie and Andy King have dedicated themselves to making bread the old-fashioned way, by hand, using as many local ingredients as they can find. Taking it one step further, they are transitioning to milling all their own grain. And they never rest—some members of their team of bakers start at 2 a.m., and others work until midnight, carefully crafting loaves that are almost as lovely to look at as they are to eat. Can’t get to Salem? Find them at area farmers markets as well. 48 Central St., Salem, 978-744-4881,
