In 1996, we opened our second location in the innovative food venue known as Chelsea Market. From 1996 to August 2012, all of our bread was baked at this location. We moved our bread kitchen to Long Island City (Queens) in 2012. Chelsea Market is a city-block long building that was the former Nabisco Oreo factory. This huge brick building, filled with interesting architectural details is now a must-see for food lovers: a unique and fascinating mix of specialty food stores, house wares, a wine shop, a florist, cafes, and restaurants, as well as the Food Network offices.? ?
