7 Irish Soda Bread Loaves to Try in the Hudson Valley


With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, check out these Hudson Valley locations for fresh-baked Irish soda bread.

Good Irish soda bread is like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. While it’s delightful all on its own, it also pairs perfectly with a St. Patrick’s Day dinner of corned beef and cabbage. Bring the luck o’ the Irish into your home by picking up one (or more) of these Irish soda breads from Hudson Valley locations.

Deising’s Bakery


Authentic Irish soda bread can be purchased in a one- or two-pound loaf. The bakery also offers other options for St. Patrick’s Day, like leprechaun cookies, shamrock cookies, Irish hat cupcakes, and rye bread. In addition to scrumptious baked goods, Deising’s has an expansive breakfast and lunch menu. If you’re looking for something to fuel your morning, grab a bagel with cream cheese and lox. Otherwise, if you need a lunchtime pick-me-up, the hefty Reuben sandwich (with pastrami, corned beef, or turkey) is a perfect choice.

Jones Farm 


Available late winter into early spring, Jones Farm offers fresh Irish soda bread from Grandma Phoebe’s Kitchen (named after Great, Great Grandma Phoebe). The bread comes in a size that the whole family can share and features butter, buttermilk, and raisins. It is recommended to pre-order as the bread often sells out fast. The farm also offers other seasonal favorites, pies, baked goods, and meal options. Stop by for breakfast to indulge on bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches, buttermilk pancakes, and French toast. Lunch features tasty options like the ham and Swiss sandwich, buttermilk fried chicken sandwich, and mac and cheese.
