Family owned Raymond's Gourmet Breads started as a deli in 1978. They since have turned their focus to baking, and have built quite a following for their Sourdough. In addition, Raymond's also offers Italian, Dutch Crunch, French and Cinnamon Raisin breads along with Donuts and Apple Turnovers. Everything is baked daily and sold to markets as well as the public. And, Sourdough loaves are baked hourly.
With all those varieties, what's a bakery to do with the loaves that don't sell? Instead of breadcrumbs, Raymond's sells day-old selections at their Outlet, down the road from their bakery. Here, you can purchase two said loaves, for the price of one.
That almost makes the bread taste twice as good.
