An artisan bakery in Kendal has opened a brand new micro-bakery in Altrincham.

Lovingly Artisan, which is based in Plumgarth’s, Kendal, opened its brand new micro-bakery at New Market Square at Altrincham Market.

The new micro-bakery is called Bread & Fishes, is officially opening this weekend.

The Lake District bakery previously ran a retail unit at the market site, which has grown from strength to strength.

The stall supplies many of the region’s top restaurants and cafes.

Bread & Fishes serves hand crafted freshly baked rye and Einkorn sourdough breads, along with street food fish dishes.

Aidan Monks owner of Lovingly Artisan said: “Having grown a successful retail and wholesale bakery business from Plumgarth’s we’ve been looking at options for a micro-bakery site to service our burgeoning Altrincham foodie tribe.

“When we set up the Lovingly Artisan unit at Altrincham Market back in 2017, we began to explore how a micro-bakery could work within the market with the mission to support our artisan bread store.

“We’ve created two additional jobs, which means that we can increase our production and bring more of our hand-crafted artisan breads to our customers across the region.’’

He added: ‘’Not only that our street food menu makes use of fresh fish and seafood provided by local fishmonger Eddie, from Altrincham’s Catch of The Day, which when served alongside our range of hand crafted freshly baked breads, firmly complements the increasingly artisan producer led foodie offer Altrincham is becoming renowned for.’’
