Where to buy challah

Intro to Judaism student, Amy S., writes:

I was looking for a list of all the places that were recommended to get good challah bread. Do you recall any of the places that were mentioned? (referring to Rabbi Rachel Joseph’s class on 2/6/20, “Shabbat: A Cathedral in Time”)


Hi, Amy,

Rabbi Joseph mentioned “Baker and Spice” in Hillsdale. They strongly encourage you to pre-order your challah, as it sells out quickly. Place your order with a credit card over the phone at (503) 244-7573. For Friday pickup, place your order BEFORE 6pm on Thursday.

Other places to get challah include the bakeries at Safeway on SW Barbur Blvd and Albertsons on SW Beavtn-Hilsdl Hwy (at Shattuck Rd). Also, at Grand Central Bakery on SW Multnomah Blvd and the Cedar Mill location.

Fred Meyer carries challah at these locations: Burlingame, Stadium (downtown), Hawthorne, and Hollywood.

Others have suggested Market of Choice, New Cascadia Traditional (GF), New Seasons and The Challahman.

I hope this helps!
