August 19, 2015

Amy Scherber, who still runs her original 23-year-old bakery, Amy’s Bread, on Ninth Avenue, has converted half the double storefront into a shop. The other half remains a cafe. With her husband, Troy Rohne, she is selling foods and a few kitchen items made by artisans in the region. The vintage wood pharmacy shelves are stocked with cheeses, jams, condiments, pickles, charcuterie, smoked fish and peanut butters, from places like Brooklyn and Vermont. There are also some sweets from the bakery and chocolates. “We live in the neighborhood, and it’s hard to find this kind of food around here,” Ms. Scherber said: The Pantry by Amy’s Bread, 672 Ninth Avenue (46th Street), 212-977-2670, amysbread.com.
