- Sunny Black & Brown is back.
Farm to Market Bread Co. is bringing one of its action stars out of retirement. Sunny Black & Brown - the round loaf made with sunflower seeds, black beans and brown rice - will be back on shelves Friday after an eight-year hiatus. The local breadmaker, who moved to the Crossroads last year (you can read about it here
), is releasing the specialty bread in honor of its 20th anniversary. They dropped off a loaf at The Pitch,
and I can tell you that if ever FTM made a sandwich bread, this is it. It's a dense cousin to pumpernickel with the sunflower seeds providing a bit of sweetness that begs for some compound herb butter.
Sunny Black & Brown will be available from Friday, September 13, through Sunday, September 22, at the Brookside Market, Hen House (select locations), Marsh's Sun Fresh, Price Chopper (select locations), the Merc (Lawrence), Overland Park Farmers Market and Whole Foods.
