Farm to Market
While working at a commercial bakery in the '80s, our founders Mark Friend and Fred Spompinato developed a shared love of bread. Mark became enamored with the sourdough fermentation process, while Fred was partial to a grainy wheat loaf. They recognized a need in Kansas City for fresh bread baked from quality ingredients. In 1993, Farm to Market Bread Co. was born from that idea. Our founders were committed to quality and authenticity, and we bring that same commitment to every loaf we bake, every day. In the early days, Farm to Market Bread Co. was run out of the back of a Westport restaurant. Mark and Fred traded bread for rent and delivered from the back of their cars. After a few years, they moved the bakery into a building in Waldo with room to grow and Mark became the sole owner of the company. Now in an even larger space in the Crossroads, Farm to Market Bread Co. is run by Mark and his son, John Friend. ​ Today, Farm to Market Bread Co. is the largest fresh bread bakery in the area. We employ 65 people that bake, pack and deliver fresh bread to 200 grocery stores and restaurants across the KC area every day. Given our history, you won't be surprised to learn that San Francisco Sourdough and Grains Galore are our most popular breads.
