At Mamadou’s Artisan Bakery tent, Catherine Palmer has just finished stating that some customers say the bakery’s bread is better than bread they’ve had in Paris.
“This is the best bread in the world, and I’ve been all over the world,” Charlotte Keys, who has lived in Arlington for 11 years, affirms after just purchasing a loaf of whole wheat.
Mamadou Mbaye, a native of Senegal, bakes the bread in Winchester and has been selling at the for three years. The bread includes varieties such as the most popular French baguettes, along with cranberry pecan and cinnamon raisin. Mbaye trained in Paris and handcrafts each loaf of bread, according to Palmer.
“We most definitely have a following,” Palmer said.
Some price examples are as follows: multi-grain, $6; cranberry pecan, $6; and baguettes, $3.
The Arlington Farmers Market takes place , 2-6 p.m., at the Russell Common Parking Lot in Arlington Center.
