Press coverage
"Get ready for the smell of fresh bread, Peekskill."
People of Peekskill
Peekskill Exurbanist - December 17, 2019
"An integral component of bread baking involves rising, which is accomplished by the addition of yeast. In the case of baker Michael Sellers, the yeast that contributed to the rising of his Journeyman Bakery business from ashes was Element 46, a Westchester County business incubator program that Sellers credits with “changing everything” for him."

"Take note of the bread: It’s warm-from-the-oven sourdough made by Journeyman Bakery served with salted, freshly whipped butter. Definitely worth it, even if you’re watching your carbs."

"Supermarket white bread has been ruined for us every since we tasted one of Michael Sellers perfect Pullman loaves with a tender-yet-structured crumb and just the tiniest hint of sweetness. It’s only available online or at area farmers’ markets, but totally worth it."

"Breads were great can't wait to try the next one. Cranberry Walnut so far is my favorite. The service is spectacular and it's so nice to have freshly baked bread. I look forward to being a long time customer."

"I am a huge fan of both English muffins and crumpets, and this toasting bread is a wonderful alternative to both. It is airy, filled with wonderful nooks and crannies to nestle both butter and your favorite jam or preserves. And it manages to be both crunchy and soft at the same time after it’s toasted, and that in itself is pure magic. I cannot say enough good things about this bread or this company. Keep up the great work. I am a fan."
