Bakeries are an essential part of our communities, especially across New York State. Which bakeries have been around the longest? Which bakeries are the oldest?

Here's a delicious history lesson that should be taught in schools more- Baked goods have been around for thousands of years. Baking was developed early during the Roman Empire.

It was a highly famous art as Roman citizens loved baked goods and demanded them frequently for important occasions such as feasts and weddings. Because of the fame of the art of baking, around 300 BC, baking was introduced as an occupation and respectable profession for Romans.

Baked goods were sold in streets of Rome, Germany, London, and more throughout history. When people immigrated to the United States in the 1800s and early 1900s, especially those from Italy, Holland and Germany, they opened small independent bakeries. A lot of these were in New York City, but a lot did expand to Upstate New York.

Here's a crazy thought- Some of those New York bakeries are still operating today. More than 100 years after they first opened, they are still here today.
