Most restaurants and cafes carry yummy treats and Northampton proper has a couple of excellent bakeries which I highly recommend.


Bakery Normand Fresh bread, croissants, scones, cookies and cakes are available here along with coffee, tea and a cute little gift shop. Tuesday to Saturday 7:30 to 5:30

192 Main Street  413-584-0717


Hungry Ghost Bread  Organic artisan sourdough breads created with organically grown grains and baked in a wood fired oven. Everything here is unbelievably fresh. Look for the “Yes” flag flying, which means the bread is out of the oven and ready.  They also have a variety of cookies, noodles, crackers, pastries, and pizza. The smell inside alone is reason to stop by and watch the bakers in action.
