    I haven't tried Fox and Obel's bread yet but it looks awesome. My vote would have to be Cuisine de France's Gallego Bread and their Parisian Loaf. I am not a fan of whole foods or trader joes' baguettes because to me they lack in flavour. Bread should have flavour of it's own and thats where I find most bread in this country absolutely boring. Cuisine de France is carried in grocery stores around the chicagoland area but I usually get mine from Treasure Island. The Gallego bread is sublime with good olive oil:

    I just got a loaf today for dinner tonight :)

    There has been some talk of Trader Joe's on here, and I don't care one way or another but I thought I'd say that Trader Joe's bread is La Briola bread, delivered daily.

    Let's revisit this topic. I had a tasty baguette at the Lincoln Square farmers market a few Sundays ago, real depth of flavor, slightly sourdough but more peasanty crust rather than a shatter of the truly sublime baguettes. Any recent revelations?

    La Fournette and Floriole, but Cook's Illustrated gives you a great loaf at home if you are so inclined.

    Lincoln Square does not have a Sunday farmers market.

    But Logan Square does. Maybe a brain fart?

    There is a French baker who has a spot in the Winnetka train station. She is only opened in the mornings Monday through Friday. Our girls' French teacher thinks she has the best. My daughters love the baguetts and the chocolate croissants.

    That is the same place. I did not know it was opened on the weekends.

    The baguette - a mix of wheat flour, water, yeast, salt and a pinch of savoir-faire and as much a symbol of France as the Eiffel Tower - may soon join UNESCO's listing of cultural treasures.
