We are a local artisan bakery and workers co-op. All our bread is slow-fermented and made by hand using organic flour, in our small Leeds-based bakery. We are passionate about making great tasting bread that is good for people, and is made using simple, high quality ingredients, organic and local where possible.

We bake a range of sourdough bread, from white sourdough, to German-style 100% rye bread, and also offer non-sourdough breads such as ciabatta loaves and our deli rye, a mild rye loaf combined with caraway seeds. We also make doughnuts, filled with either custard or jam. In all cases, the dough is fermented, hand-shaped and made using as many organic ingredients as possible.

As a values-led enterprise, we aim to provide an ethical and enjoyable livelihood for all our workers whilst reducing the environmental impact of the bread we produce.

We are based on the co-op values of democracy, self-help, self-responsibility, equality, equity and solidarity. We aim for a non-hierarchical workplace where empowerment of workers, care of the community and collective self-reliance are at the core of how we function.

Spotlight on The Organic Pantry

Welcome to the Organic Pantry.  Unlike many organic suppliers, we are proud to be a family run organic farm based at Newton Kyme near Tadcaster, North Yorkshire.

The Watson family have farmed the 300 acres at St Helens for over 100 years.  If you come and visit the farm you can find both Jonnie and Fanny working alongside their children to preserve the plant and wildlife for future generations.

Our organic produce has been fully certified since 1999 and is available through our Box Scheme, Farmer’s Markets and our own on-site farm shop. We also have a thriving wholesale business and can supply all our fruit and vegetables on a larger scale. We will deliver straight to your door throughout the North of England, Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Northumberland. We also offer an extensive organic shop online with Organic Boxes, Organic Vegetables, Organic Fruit, Organic Meat, Wholefoods and Organic Food.

We have an on-site farm shop which not only stocks our delicious home-grown produce but we can also supply most of your grocery needs from store-cupboard essentials to fresh dairy. Organic meat and locally produced organic bread are available to pre-order.

The shop is a place to support and promote local produce with a large range of Bracken Hill jams, preserves and chutneys, a range of rape seed oils from Wharfe Valley, a multitude of dried cereals and fruits from Tockwith based Country Products, and tasty Yorkshire crisps.

To coincide with the end of this year's Fairtrade fortnight this month the Community stall will be promoting the work of Fairtrade

News

As a result of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic we have put a number of measures in place for the October Market to ensure that all our customers, stallholders and volunteers remain safe. For the forseeable future, because of the current social distancing guidelines, we have moved to the grounds of St.Margaret's Church where it should prove easier to ensure a safe shopping experience for our customers, stallholders and volunteers.

You are asked not to attend if you have any of the COVID-19 symptoms, i.e. high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or change in taste or sense of smell.

Everyone attending the market will be asked to comply with social distancing guidelines and we will be operating a one-way system round the stalls, with managed queues to limit the number of customers in the market at any one time.

Household groups are welcome but we ask all households to remain together. We will provide hand sanitiser upon entry to and exit from the market and encourage all customers to use contactless methods of payment where possible. Customers are asked to only touch the stall items that they are definitely going to buy.

We plan to have a total of 21 stalls covering a wide range of products and look forward to welcoming you to our new site at the slightly later starting time of 09:30. Last entry to the market will be 12:30.
