There’s still time to enjoy local specials for your Easter table.



Barb Talevich, owner of the West Side Bakery, 2303 W. Market St., is offering her family’s special recipe sweet bread, which is made with egg dough and studded with golden raisins and a touch of orange and lemon zest.



Great Harvest Bread, 3900 Medina Road, Copley Township, also is offering specialty breads for the holiday, including its whole wheat Honey Bunnies, loaves shaped into adorable bunnies.



Speaking of Great Harvest Bread, owners Kim Hannon and John Smith are interested in selling their business and have put the word out that they are looking for potential buyers.



Today also marks the start of the annual Easter bake sale at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, 129 S. Union St., Akron.



Members of the church will be offering traditional Greek pastries and Easter bread for sale from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and Thursday. Phone 330-434-0000 to place an order or stop by the church.



Between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Thursday, the church also is having its weekly lunch where you can dine on gyros, soup, salads and other Greek favorites.
