Conveniently located near Kickass Cupcakes is a brand new store, When Pigs Fly, which sells a wide variety of all-natural, artisan breads. You might be familiar with their breads as they are available in some local stores.
Their bakery is located in York, Maine, and they have stores in Kittery, Freeport, Portsmouth and now Somerville. Their breads are made in small batches and it takes about 36 hours to bake a loaf of bread, from start to finish. They also use some seasonal ingredients so certain flavored breads may change depending on the season.
The Somerville store appears to sell all of their various breads. At most local stores, you only find about 4-5 varieties available. But now you can get flavors such as Whole Wheat, Low Carb Whole Wheat, Seeded Whole Grain, Tuscan Wheat, New York Rye, Cinnamon Raisin, Oat & Honey, Six Grain & Pumpkin Seed, Sourdough, Pumpernickel, Harvest Bread, Chocolate, Multi-Grain Anadama, Hog Heaven, Kalamata Olive & Roasted Red Pepper, Banana & Pecan & Maple and Brown Sugar, Orange & Roasted Pistachio and Cranberry, Sicilian Green Olive with Hot and Sweet Cherry Peppers and more. They also sell a couple types of rolls and a French baguette.
Most of the loaves cost $6. They are good-sized loaves and I think it is a reasonable price for what you get. They will allow you to sample any of their breads. I tried several of their breads and they were quite delicious. I really enjoyed the Banana & Pecan & Maple and Brown Sugar. I have had their breads before and enjoyed them. It was even better to get them fresher.
This is definitely a place to check out, especially if you love bread as much as I do.
