Bread & Circus Bakehouse in Medford Is Closing

A longtime local bakery business that supplies the markets that once held its name is shutting down.

According to a couple of sources, Bread & Circus Bakehouse is closing its doors for good, with its last day of operation apparently being July 17. We have been told that many workers at the Middlesex Avenue business will transition to jobs at Whole Foods locations--and Whole Foods indeed replaced a handful of Bread & Circus markets in the Greater Boston area in the early 1990s.

Bread & Circus Bakehouse makes a variety of different products for Whole Foods, including cakes, pies, pastries, breads, pizza dough, muffin batter, and more.

The address for Bread & Circus Bakehouse is 300 Middlesex Avenue, Medford, MA, 02155.

[July 30 update: A phone call placed to the Medford location of Whole Foods indicates that Bread & Circus Bakehouse is now closed.]
