About Us


Follow the smell of fresh bread down Seavey Street to our location next to the Seavey Street Laundry in North Conway’s village neighborhood – just across from the park and train station. It matters where you buy your bread, so buy local! Made fresh daily by the folks in the back – sold with a smile by the folks in the front!

We’ve been baking bread for our friends and neighbors since 2002. Our neighborhood has grown with customers coming from just down the road, the surrounding towns, and visitors “from away”. They return each season for “pie like Grama’s*” and “the best croissants west of Paris!*”

Old Village Bakery offers pies and cakes to order, breakfast and snack pastries, bagels and cookies. Lunch specials include spanakopita, quiche, focaccia and ham and cheese croissants. Fresh baked, local and organic ingredients top the menu and customers say our organic fair trade coffee from Equal Exchange is the “best in the village.*”

“Mom and Pop” doesn’t begin to describe us. Mark Ross-Parent is the owner and head baker at OVB. Always ready to pursue a dream, Mark trained as a meteorologist and worked in Antarctica and the summit of Mount Washington only to turn his penchant for baking bread in the wood stove into a career and passion for creating a neighborhood bakery. Along with his wife Susan and sons Marco and Jackson pitching in to help, our stellar crew of talented and dedicated bakers and counter staff are ready to talk to about the bread, the pastry, the art of scratch baking, the best loaf for your meal, the local ingredients we use, the weather, and best hiking trails in the area.
