World Class Bakers at Hearth Wood Fired Bread

Bread. It’s the starter of many meals. Its symbolism connects entire populations and civilizations – breaking bread together signifies peace between peoples…if only during dinner.

Well, this October 7 on the Greenway in Boston, you’ll get to break some bread with the fine folks at Hearth Wood Fired Bread. They’re one of the many vendors and food craftspeople taking part in the Boston Local Food Festival (BLFF) that day.

While the BLFF itself provides opportunities for local food-related businesses, initiatives and nonprofits to share their products, services and programs. The food on hand lets you taste creativity, passion and the flavors of the world.

Getting back to bread, Hearth Wood Fired Bread is just two years old but has experienced a bit of fame in that time. According to company founder Nicole Nyberg (who started the company in 2010 with husband Peter), Hearth is “passionate about being the very best…our company is about excellence—we have high standards for our products, the service we provide and the people we employ. We want to become known not only for the wonderful bread that we produce, but also for being a workplace that trains and develops world-class bakers.”

To that end, Nicole gave me a list of locations where their bread is already sold and it reads like a who’s who of quality shops and restaurants. They also show up at farmers markets – underscoring some of the BLFF’s tenets of being local and being involved in the community.

Here’s the list…

  • Russo’s – Watertown
  • Foodie’s Urban Market – Boston
  • Foodie’s – Duxbury
  • Montilio’s – Braintree, Quincy
  • The Market at the Pinehills – Plymouth
  • Perry’s Market – Plymouth
  • Doorknock Dinner – Braintree, Quincy
  • Fruit Center Marketplace – Milton, Hingham
  • Formaggio Kitchen – Cambridge
  • Golden Goose Market – Boston
  • Norwood Farmers Market
  • Braintree Farmers Market
  • Waltham Farmers Market
  • Marshfield Farmers Market

On site at the BLFF, Hearth plans to provide samples of the many different types of artisan bread and dipping sauces. A few include the company’s French Country loaf and their cranberry-orange-candied ginger loaf.

Nicole also shared that founder/owner Peter is an adjunct professor at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island in the College of Culinary Arts International Baking and Pastry Institute.

You can find their products and some nice photos of tasty bread at the Hearth Wood Fired Bread site or visit their Facebook page at
