Bonjour from the French Bakery!
The French Bakery started at the GreenMarket in 2014, and is now Delray Beach’s first French bakery located at 814 NE 6th Ave, Delray Beach. The bakery’s breads and pastries are handcrafted by French-trained artisans joined by highly qualified artisan bakers from America.
