Iggy’s Bread of the World

What does “Bread of the World” mean? For Iggy’s, it translates into old-fashioned, naturally leavened, hearth-baked breads made from ingredients that have not been chemically treated in any way (“as close to the tree as possible”) and available at a price “for all people.” For the yeast-addicted, it means the yummiest bread in Boston, from country sourdough to brioche to the decadent orange chocolate cherry. If you can’t make it to the retail store in Watertown, Iggy’s breads can be found at various stores in Boston (Bread &Circus, Savenour’s, select Star Markets) or ordered by mail.
