Tandem Bagel Company

At People’s Market, the co-managers get asked a lot of questions about our bagels.  Where do we buy our bagels from? What’s our favorite bagel? What’s our favorite spread? We’d like to do a market spotlight on Tandem Bagel Company in Easthampton, Massachusetts where we buy our bagels! The bagels are baked fresh every morning for People’s Market!

People’s Market carries a variety of bagels:

Plain, Everything, Onion, Salt, Parmesan, Pretzel,  Whole Wheat, Whole Wheat Everything, Jalapeno, Cinnamon Raisin, Blueberry, French Toast, Snickerdoodle

The Market also carries deluxe bagels with a slice of cheese baked on top:

Asiago, Wild Cheddar, Cheesy Garlic, Hot & Spicy

Tandem Bagel Company supplies our cream cheese as well:

Chive, Garden Vegetable, Vanilla, Jalapeno, Honey Walnut, Plain

The bagels also pair well with:

Earth Balance butter, Go Veggie vegan cream cheese, hummus, Chao vegan cheese (tomato cayenne, coconut herb, & original), Field Roast vegetarian deli slices (lentil sage & roasted tomato), or fresh greens.

Some of our customers’ favorite bagel pairings are Wild Cheddar with Chive cream cheese, Plain with Chao original and hummus, Blueberry with Vanilla cream cheese, and Hot & Spicy with Jalapeno. The sk is the limit with your combinations!

Customers also put cream cheese on Tandem’s tea breads. The Morning Glory, a spice loaf with carrots and pineapple, pairs nicely with a smear of honey walnut or vanilla cream cheese. The Orange Cranberry and a cup of herbal tea is a great afternoon snack. A toasted slice of Blueberry tea bread is heavenly!
