Great Harvest Bakery is Committed to Freshness & Community

There is nothing like a loaf of freshly baked bread and handmade baked goodies! And because store-bought and frozen bakery items never truly satisfy we turn to Great Harvest Bakery Meridian. A cherished institution, serving the community with freshly baked bread and helping hands for over two decades.

The story of this local bakery traces its roots back to the 1970s when the first Freedom franchise was founded in Dillon, Montana. But Great Harvest is no newbie to the Treasure Valley! They have had a presence in the Boise area for over 40 years! Just 3 years ago, in 2021 Tyler and Mandy Fortunati had a dream to turn their love of baking into more than a hobby, and that’s when they purchased Great Harvest Bakery in Meridian.

With a commitment to freshness and community, Great Harvest Meridian works hard to supply the Treasure Valley with quality products and unwavering service.

All About That Freshness

At Great Harvest Bakery Meridian, they've got a mantra: "Fresh and natural is the name of the game." No weird preservatives here! They're all about using natural ingredients and grinding their own wheat in-house every day. That's right, they've got their own wheat mill to make sure every delicious treat they whip up is top-notch.

What started as a simple bread bakery in the '70s has transformed into a bakery-café model today. They're not just baking bread; they're making awesome café treats like sandwiches, salads, sweets, and cakes. Stop in for breakfast or lunch and make sure you grab some bread to take home!

Convenient Catering and Delivery

For those times when you're in the mood for their signature flavors but can't make it to the bakery in person, their delivery service ensures your craving is satisfied and brought right to your doorstep. It's a convenient way to savor their offerings in the comfort of your own home or office.
