Street in Jerusalem known as “baker's street” where most, if not all, the bakeries of the city were located. It was common in ancient cities for trades and crafts to locate near others of the same kind. In all likelihood, the baker's residence was part of the bakery. Zedekiah promised Jeremiah, whom he had imprisoned, that he would have food for as long as bread was available on baker's street (Jeremiah 37:21 ).
