Fresh-Baked Breads at Media Farmers Market!

Big Sky Bread!

With whole grains and minimal ingredients, North Wilmington’s Big Sky Bread Co. creates European-style loaves that owner Patrick O’Neill loved from his childhood in Queens. They’ve become the centerpiece of his business, flanked by other handmade loaves like alpine whole wheat sunflower, honey wheat, baguettes, and sourdough, to name just a few! Big Sky products are shortcut-free, with no chemicals or hydrogenated oil. A Culinary Institute of America grad, O’Neill worked at Kennedy Center, Winterthur, and Longwood Gardens before opening Big Sky Bread Co. several years ago. O’Neill says one of the best parts of his business is working with his hands: “You can feel something and know it’s right.” And you’ll know it’s right, too, just by looking at the selection of breads, pastries, cookies and granola Big Sky brings to the Market every week. When you stop by for your favorite bread for dinner, why not pick up a second something you haven’t tried yet, and discover a new favorite!
