Bread & Fishes Altrincham Market – Lovingly Artisan

Lovingly Artisan, the successful artisan bakery based at Plumgarth’s, Kendal, opened their brand spanking new micro-bakery at New Market Square, Altrincham Market, over the May Day Bank Holiday and to celebrate they are having a bit of a do.

The new Lovingly Artisan micro-bakery called Bread & Fishes, is set to be unveiled on the morning of Saturday 19th May with a ribbon cutting celebration.

The Lake District bakery previously established a retail unit at the prestigious market site in April 2017, which has grown from strength to strength, cementing its position as the North West’s premier artisan bakery, supplying the local community and many of the region’s top restaurants and cafes.

Bread & Fishes serves up hand crafted freshly baked Rye and Einkorn sourdough breads, but that’s not all though, customers can also be savour a selection of simple and tasty street food fish dishes, to take away or eat in, all washed down with a glass of something chilled.

The ‘Catch of the Day Menu’ includes tasty treats like Mackerel served with Kalamata olives and salted anchovies, Hake with sweet chillies, garlic and parsley butter, or simple oven roasted prawns all served with scrumptious Lovingly Artisan Sourdough. For vegetarians there’s the totally tasty option of oven roasted sweet tomatoes and garlic bruschetta.

Aidan Monks owner of Lovingly Artisan explains: “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.’’

Freshly baked bread from the micro-bakery will be available for customers to buy from Lovingly Artisan’s stall and Bread & Fishes will dishing up oven baked seafood and shell fish dishes on the following market days; Tuesday Club, Fresh Friday, Trad-Mod Saturday and Design, Food & Vintage Sunday.
