Granton Garden Bakery


Friday 12-2pm @ Pilton Community Health Project

Saturday 10am-2pm @ Granton:hub

Thank you for all the support in 2019. We've had an amazing response to the bread and our aims.

We want to do more to make the bread accessible for everyone so in 2020, all 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 over the odds, we encourage you to do so.

We are no longer taking orders or offering subscriptions - there will always be plenty of bread but aim to come earlier to avoid disappointment.

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.
