I have heard from three different local frugal sources that the Apple Market on Nolensville Road was a great place to buy bread. I finally made it there today. The interior resembles an HG Hill store. When I first walked in, I went to the bread section where much of their bread appeared to me to be overpriced. I was very disappointed. So I wondered around the store, picked up a few coupons - a really good one, $1 off of beef when you purchase A1, and finally purchased some celery because I needed it for a recipe. My few minutes of free time before first child pick up were dwindling. On the way out I asked the greeter what the deal was on the bread, not expecting anything. She said, "Oh yes, its the racks of Pepperidge Farm bread in the freezer section." Yeah, that's where I would expect fresh bread to be.
Anyway, there they were on the bread racks in the middle of the freezer section. They were perfect, with sell by dates still a few days away. The greeter had thought they were .79 each but when I checked out with my nine loaves, they turned out to be .50 each. What a deal! Each was over $3 originally. So I spent $4.50 plus tax to restock my freezer with great bread. I bought a variety, from wheat to sourdough to plain. I asked the checkout girl what the story was on the bread, but she did not know, other than "A man just brings them in."
My frugal sources say that the market restocks at various times which is when you should go, but I do not know when that is. It appeared to be well stocked today with two or three racks of bread. If you are interested, here is the address:
