Farm to Market inaugurates its new Crossroads HQ (slideshow)

Farm to Market cuts the ribbon at its new bakery in the Crossroads.

The mayor makes a cut.

Mayor Sly James' diet took a hit this afternoon. As you can see, he was on hand for Farm to Market's "bread cutting" ceremony, capping the bakery's move to the Crossroads. The company's new HQ — at 100 East 20th Street — is now operational, following a $500,000 renovation over the summer.

A fascinated James snapped a few cell-phone pictures of his own during a tour of the facility. As John Friend (son of Farm to Market founder Mark Friend) led a dozen or so of the bread-curious back to the building's front room, the mayor made his farewells. Then he spotted something he'd missed while making his entrance an hour earlier. "Oh, there's cheese," he said, then walked toward an hors d'œuvre table.

There was also plenty of bread. (Full disclosure: We didn't say no when John Friend filled a couple of bags for The Pitch.) Click the crust below to see the mayor's tour through Farm to Market.
