About the Bakery

Handmade slowly-fermented hearth-baked artisan bread
Community Supported Bakery

DeRego's Bread was established in 2013 when Troy DeRego began baking artisan bread and pastries for sale at the Starkville Community Market. In May of 2015, with a great deal of local support from a community eager for real bread, the bakery on Main Street opened.

My love of bread began with trips to the Portuguese bakeries during visits to my grandparents in New Bedford, Massachusetts. I baked my first loaf at sea on a research schooner! I have studied at the San Francisco Baking Institute, and as a proud member of the Bread Bakers Guild of America I have attended workshops with many of my bread making heroes.

I am grateful for the opportunity to share my craft with this community and I hope to become your local bakery!

  • Bread

    For us, it is all about the bread. There is a movement happening, bringing together old methods with new knowledge, creating better tasting, more nutritious, and more interesting bread. Bread has been nourishing people for thousands of years and we are excited to continue that tradition right here in your neighborhood.

  • Pastries

    We bring the same interest in whole grains, complex flavors, and good nutrition that guides our bread making to our pastries. We believe in more flavor and less sugar. We believe in whole grains because they taste great. Try one of our honey biscuits and you will believe, too!

  • Sandwiches

    What better way to sample our bread than as a delicious sandwich? We keep it simple with choices such as the Jambon Buerre, featuring our baguette, and grilled cheese on toasted Starkville Sourdough. We hope you will take a loaf home and try it yourself!
