Wegmans has installed a flour mill inside its Pittsford, New York, store; it will produce flour to be used in the store’s bakery. It is likely the first mill inside a supermarket in the nation, according to the Rochester-based grocer.

The mill is 10 x 4 x 7 feet and is visible in the store. For now, the mill will be used to make flour only for Einkorn Rye bread and, after Wegmans’ bakers grow familiar with producing that loaf, the mill will be used to make other stone-ground, local, organic flours for other varieties of breads.

Nick Greco, Wegmans’ bread artisan, oversees the operation.
