Metropolitan Bakery’s Online Shop Ships Around the Country

Metropolitan Bakery is one of Philadelphia’s artisanal treasures. For nearly twenty years, they’ve been baking an array of gorgeous, handmade breads, cakes, tarts and treats every day. Recently, they launched an extensive online store, which allows those of us in the know to send their products to friends and family from coast-to-coast.

Next time you find yourself in need of a new baby gift for a friend in California or a get-well present for your aunt in Michigan, choose bread (or granola!) in place of the traditional sourced-from-who-knows-where fruit basket and support a local business in the process.
