After Kogler and Good Earth owner Susan Ryan struck up a friendship at the markets, they decided it would be beneficial to both businesses to have the bread available on a more year-round basis farther downstate than its existing Rehoboth-Lewes-area venues.

“He was my neighbor all summer at three farmers’ markets, and people would be whining, ‘What are we going to do?’” said Ryan of the end of the markets on the last weekend of August. “So, on the last day of the Bethany farmers’ market, we announced that the breads will be available down here on Fridays and Saturdays.”

Kogler’s Old World Breads offers rolls and cinnamon shorties, a sourdough loaf, a classic French baguette, an Italian loaf and a wheat loaf. Besides Good Earth’s Friday and Saturday offerings, Kogler’s Old World Breads are also available at Fifer’s Orchards in Dewey Beach, at Tomato Sunshine, at Hickman’s Meat Market, at Lewes Fish House, at Maggie’s Deli and at Café Azafran.
