Earlier during the pandemic, people were baking bread in record numbers, resulting in flour flying off the shelves and yeast nowhere to be found. Unfortunately, many bakeries are still closed or running on limited hours, and many folks are still avoiding crowded grocery stores.
Luckily, there are plenty of online bakeries and specialty food stores that are shipping fresh bread nationwide. From stores that are making specialty artisanal loaves and New York bagels to ones selling good old Wonder Bread, here's a running list of where to order bread online. And if you want to pass off one of your delivery loaves as something you baked yourself, we won't judge.
Williams Sonoma: In addition to high-end kitchenware, Williams Sonoma also offers a large selection of specialty foods including several types of bread, pastries, bagels, and biscuits. Shipping is free on orders over $49.
Bread Basket: Curated weekly, each $49 order from Bread Basket contains a large assortment of bread, bagels, pastries, and sweet treats sourced from New York bakeries including Orwashers, BAKED, Amy's Bread, Pain d'Avignon, New Yorker Bagel, and Leaven & Co. You can buy a one-off basket for yourself or an NYC hospital, or subscribe for weekly deliveries at a slight discount. Orders must be placed by Tuesday for delivery that Friday. Shipping is an additional $15 to $25 based on your location.
Bread Village: Bread Village ships German rye sourdough loaves and rolls from Germany to the United States. Loaves are par-baked and frozen, so you'll finish baking the bread at home, ensuring fresh bread whenever you're ready for it. Shipping is $9.99 or free on orders over $54.
Green Mart: Green Mart is an online grocery store, focusing on farm-fresh ingredients. It has a selection of fresh bread including Jewish rye, French baguettes, and cottage loaves. Shipping is a flat $9.90.
Zingerman's: The Ann Arbor, MI-based Zingerman's Deli has an online shop where it sells its artisan bread, meats, cheeses, and other specialty foods. Bread ships with two-day shipping so ensure it arrives fresh, but as a result, shipping costs hover around $13 to $15.
Domaselo: This Miami-based bakery is shipping its organic sourdough loaves. Get a plain country loaf or baguette or choose from breads flavored with herbs, nuts, or fruits. If you live in the Miami area, delivery is free on orders over $20. For the rest of the country, shipping is free on orders over $35, excluding Alaska, Hawaii, California, and Arizona.
Harry & David: In addition to its classic fruit baskets, Harry & David sells bakery baskets that include a variety of sweet breads, cookies, and more. It even stocks cinnamon rolls from Cinnabon.
Panera Bread: Panera Bread is one of the many restaurant chains that has shifted to online grocery delivery during the pandemic. If you live within the delivery radius of a Panera, you'll be able to order bread, bagels, and other Panera staples for same-day delivery. There is a $5 order minimum and a $3 delivery fee.
Thrive Market: A monthly membership costs $9.94 and gets you access to tons of organic, fair-trade, and sustainably sourced groceries and produce, though much of the latter is in bulk. In terms of bread, it's a much more reasonable loaf of take-and-bake bread that you can "bake" yourself.
Boxed: Boxed sells bulk dry goods at discounted prices, but for fresh items like bread, it also offers an Express grocery delivery service where a shopper will pick up and deliver your items at a time you select. The delivery fee is $8.99 and you're also subject to a fluctuating On-Demand fee.
As I write this, the southeast United States is bracing for a winter storm, at least by our standards. You know what that means. Many people have rushed out to buy bread, milk and eggs. Some colleagues like popular TV meteorologist Brad Panovich even use a "Bread Meter" to convey the level of winter weather threats to viewers. The "bread, egg and milk" thing has always fascinated me because I know everyone doesn't suddenly get a craving for french toast at the mention of a snowstorm. I currently live in Georgia, but I also noticed this same tendency when I lived in the Washington D.C. area. Why do people buy bread when snow (or inclement weather) is in the forecast?
My colleagues at Accuweather argued that New Englanders may be the origin of the bread-milk craze. They point to the Blizzard of 1978 that trapped people in their homes for weeks as being partially credited with this practice. A recent CNN post highlights Virginia Montanez's fascinating 2014 article in Pittsburgh Magazine suggesting Pittsburgh residents were crippled by a 1950 snowstorm in the region that left many citizens without bread and milk. These two examples suggest that the practice is related to the old saying, "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me." A University of Georgia study by Professor Alan Stewart has also explored the role that past experiences play. I also suspect that a certain "group think" or herd mentality probably also sets in. University of Georgia psychology professor Dr. Janet Frick wins analysis of the year with this perspective,
there's a growing psychology literature on decision-making which shows that we are often not rational or logical in how we weigh the risks of various events. So apparently where weather is concerned, we are not terribly worried about getting struck by lightning, but we are terrified of the idea of having to make a meal from items in our pantry that doesn't include bread and milk!
However, in both of those cases, large, crippling storms happened. Today, it is quite common to see the "bread or milk" purge for storms that are predicted to produce small amounts (dusting to a few inches), particularly in the South. My colleague Dr. David Stooksbury, a professor of engineering and atmospheric sciences at the University of Georgia, has often called these "French Toast Warnings."
Yes, stocking up on bread and milk for a 1-inch snow is perhaps a bit overboard but, in a more sustained weather event, what types of things should people run to the store and buy? The American Red Cross preparedness website recommends things like:
Small batch artisan baking methods, extended natural fermentation for up to 72 hours, minimal ingredients and lots of love is how we make bread. NO artificial preservatives, additives or sugar. Click "Shop" button in the site menu to find a loaf for any occasion. Every Sandwich will turn into a Gourmet Experience. Happy Yumm!
I had big doubts that bread with no preservatives could travel and still be fresh. WAS I WRONG!!!!!! YOUR BREAD IS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!! I want to thank you for your patience with me. I was very suspicious all along. I'm sorry. You now have a new customer.
We discovered Chia Cracked Rye at EarthFare, and when those stores closed, we thought our access to this delicious bread was forever lost. So happy to learn that Izzio ships, and we are on our 4th case. It arrives in great condition, and we just throw it in the freezer, taking out one loaf at a time. Life is too short for subpar bread!

The relationship between humans and food is seldom uncomplicated, and it doesn't always follow common sense -- especially when there's a storm on the horizon. Stopping by the grocery store to stock up on food is Storm Survival 101 for many people, and most of us have seen evidence of it: Shelves bare of staples like bread and milk. Although a shortage of these items, in general, is a rare occurrence in the U.S., it can happen when a superstorm is in the forecast and local authorities advise constituents to buy extra supplies before the storm hits. Of course, on many levels this makes sense. If you're homebound because of the weather, you'll need something to eat when you don't have access to restaurant meals or local markets.
And that's not the only conundrum people encounter when stocking up on milk, bread and other perishable items before a storm hits: They simply buy too much of a good thing. The universal truth about perishable items is that they have an expiration date. And if you buy them in abundance, you may not be able to consume them all before they expire. Most perishables, like milk and bread, will only last about a week. The same is true for some fresh fruits and vegetables. So if you're expecting to be homebound because of a storm for only a few days, why buy so much food that's sure to go bad?
Rain, sleet or snow, there's milk in the refrigerator and bread in the basket. This may sound a bit like the delivery mantra of the U.S. mail service, but it's actually the tactic most Americans employ during severe weather. And this behavior offers clues as to the motivations driving them.
"People always clear the shelves of milk, eggs and bread," Paul Shipman, a spokesman for the American Red Cross's Connecticut chapter told the Hartford Courant in 2012. "Well, the milk doesn't do well without refrigeration, eggs are useless if you can't cook them and the bread is not going to provide much nutrition on its own. You need non-perishable food, water and other necessities to be safe." 041b061a72
