UPDATE 26/03/20:

We are continuing to bake and monitoring the situation as it develops.

The current crisis is building demand for healthy, affordable food and for creative social connection. Small producers are a big part of that. Just now we must be grateful to the power of the supermarkets to keep us fed, but in the (not so) long run we cannot rely on invisible sources for our food.

We'll continue to meet demand as it develops, and be part of the effort Granton Community Gardeners and others are making to support people locally. Please support us if you can!

All our regular bread is now sold on a 'pay what you can afford' basis. If you're short of cash, there's still delicious healthy fresh bread available no questions asked. Those who can pay a little more, we encourage you to do so.

What makes us different?

Granton Garden Bakery aims to provide an affordable and accessible source of healthy bread to EH5.

We aren't set up for profit; any proceeds will go to support the work of Granton Community Gardeners, the charity of which the Bakery is a part.

All our bread is made with three priorities in mind: health, flavour and affordability. It has just 3 ingredients: water, salt, and flour grown locally and organically and stoneground by Scotland the Bread and Gilchesters, as well as very occasionally our own Granton-grown wheat. We also use ingredients grown in our own gardens for special breads, changing weekly through the growing season. We ferment our bread slowly, making it more tasty and more digestible.

Thank you for your support...

This is our first step into commercial production. We want to make high quality, freshly baked bread for our community, more regularly and on a bigger scale, than we could before. Our priorities are: to make food that best nourishes our bodies, takes good care of the soil on which it is grown, and values the work of everyone that goes into producing it. Bread like this takes time and skill.

This means we are different from a system where the main priorities are to make food as cheap as possible, and to make as much profit for very rich people as possible. We don't want food that was only made to try to make money from our community, without caring if it makes us unhealthy, or if soil and people are exploited in the process, or if lots of resources (like fuel to transport things thousands of miles) are used and pollution produced.

We also have an aim to make sure that everyone in Granton has access to good food. So we want to make our bread affordable and available to everyone who'd like to eat it, while being careful not to undervalue the work that goes into it. This is a balance we're trying to find as we go...

We hope you will support us in whatever way you can.
