Indie Ogden review: Harvest bread

Every time I am downtown I just can not resist  stopping into Great Harvest bread for a slice and a cookie. If I have time and my daughter is being especially good we order my favorite – a chicken salad sandwich and eat it outside in the sun. There are a ton of reasons why I love Great harvest  but to name just a few- they are local, they are incredibly nice and the bread is the best I have ever had.

Founded in the 1970’s by Pete and Laura Wakeman in Montana, Slowly and organically, Great Harvest began to grow into the nation’s first family of independently owned and operated whole grain bread bakeries. Here in Ogden the downtown Great Harvest bread is owned by locals  Chris and Susie Zenger and run by their awesome crew of bread lovers.

Slices of bread with fresh made butter and honey are only 50 cents and they have daily specials and seasonal breads to taste. My favorite sandwich is the chicken salad loaded with chicken, grapes, cashews and veggies inside fluffy bread. they have all kinds of fun sandwich options from veggie to meat overload.  For your sweet tooth they also carry cookies, scones and sweet breads, be sure to let your kid color one of these color pages  so you er- I mean your kid can get a free cookie.

The best part of vising harvest bread is that there is always someone there to greet you with a smile, ask you how your day is going, open  the door for you and  let you sample thier delicious breads.
