He also has Chocolate Brioche, Cinnamon Rolls and fresh Pretzels!   Many of these breads are available during the week by special order.  At the shop, we make French Dinner every morning.

Le Petit Marché began as a bakery, and we’ve only improved on that trade with time. We begin baking fresh bread and pastries every morning, available by 9:30 in the morning for a leisurely breakfast. Every day sees a new round of specialty breads, starting with Monday’s crusty french dinner bread and baguettes, through to Saturday’s Greek Olive bread and Irish Barm Brack with raisins.

The same bread is used in our sandwiches, and the stuffed baguettes which have become a local luncheon legend.

Of course, for those with a sweet tooth, we also offer a wide variety of cookies, cakes and specialty desserts. Try our cinnamon rolls over a cup of organic Ancora coffee, or scones with a personal pot of sweetened tea.

We offer a large selection of baked goods including cookies, cakes, pies, pastries, bars and more! Perfect for any gathering!!

Specialty cakes and cupcakes are available by special order. Stop by or call to set up a personal consultation with our pastry chef, Susan!
