For our customers who follow a gluten-free diet, or for those simply going easy on the carbs, we’re able to serve their meal in a box rather than in a wrap or ciabatta. Also, twice-cooked, gluten-free, sweet potato chips with rosemary and sea salt crystals.”

A cracker of a South Indian Style Lemon Pickle – fresh, spicy, and warming. A Tomato Relish that is a great addition to anything with cheese, bacon sandwiches, chips, veggies. The perfect condiment 🙂 I’ll rustle up some cheese and crackers for you to taste it with.
PLUS… a nice selection of the old favourites as well. See you Saturday!’
Raw milk, butter & other dairy – Hook & Son Organic raw milk and dairy, from farmer Steve’s closed herd on the Pevensey Levels. They’ve just been featured on Channel 4, “A Year on the Farm” – check it out here. NEW on the stall is organic Labneh – middle eastern inspired yoghurt – find it alongside their divine ghee, raw cream and butter.
Cakes – Brett & Bailey They’re back! Joe says “The dark days of January are here again, and you’ll need cake to cope. Don’t worry – we’re here for you. First things first, this Saturday sees the return of a seriously Scandinavian treat – semlor. These sweet cardamom buns are filled with almond paste and topped with a generous swirl of whipped organic cream. Served during Lent in bakeries the length and breadth of Sweden, you’ll find them on our stall all the way up until Easter.
On the cake parade we’ll have a chocolate noisette cake (because you polished off all the Ferrero Rocher on Boxing Day and are still in mourning), apple and salted caramel cake (as lots of you were asking for it in its absence), chocolate Guinness cake, double carrot, squares of crumble cake with the first of Yorkshire’s finest forced rhubarb, a sticky treacle tart with rye and a crumbly shortbread base, and a fragrant baked cheesecake with raspberry and lemongrass.
We’ll also have plenty of our usual favourites including sticky buns, cardamom knots, salted chocolate brownies, peanut butter cookies, and lots of lovely homemade preserves awaiting your Sunday morning toast.
It’s so good to be back. Remember that you can order whole cakes, including Top Banana, Rhubarbra Streisand, Red Velvet and more at the Brett & Bailey online shop. Looking forward to feeding you. B&Bx”
