Prairie Boy Bread, previously only available at the Bloor-Borden Farmer’s Market and select specialty stores, now has its own retail outlet on College Street. After two years of operating a wholesale bakery out of I Deal Coffee on Sorauren, the operation outgrew its small square footage. “We’d sell 150 loaves and still not make it through the four-hour market,” says co-owner Grant MacPherson. At their new space, MacPherson and his wife Lainie Knox bake organic sourdough made from Ontario-grown wheat harvested by a Mennonite family using horse-drawn equipment. In addition to hearty boules packed with grains and seeds (rye, flax, kamut, bulgur, steel-cut oats), they sell more indulgent loaves like the cinnamon-raisin weekend special. Sandwiches are also on offer, along with scones, madeleines and spreads, like the house-made vegan Nutella, for the bread.

Loaves of bread are $6.25 each. ($7.25 for specials like cinnamon raisin.)
