If someone says “Beverley” to you, what do you think of? The county town of the East Riding, one of the best towns in England to live in, according to some newspaper polls, the fabulous area known as The Westwood, with its free-range herd of cattle, the fantastically vibrant Wednesday and Saturday Markets?
If it’s the markets that spring to mind, then let me introduce myself. I’m Eileen and on Saturdays, I run our Beverley Market stall, which sells a wonderful variety of speciality breads, rolls, tea-cakes and scones. During the week, I manage our Beverley shop, where we have an even greater range of bakery products to choose from.
I’m here on the Market, rain, hail, snow and shine and, I can assure you, that since we arrived here last October, we have had some real corking weather to contend with! Mind you, the Beast from the East didn’t stop us 😊
Each Saturday I bring a tempting array of sourdough breads, some including olives, spelt bread for those of us who enjoy the old grains, multi-seeded and multi-grain breads and some fabulous ryes and whole meals, some of which are studded with walnuts and cranberries. Who said bread was “ordinary?” Ours isn’t! I even have garlic baguettes ready for you to pop into your oven when you return home.
Not only do I have bread loaves, but also a selection of artisan rolls and breadcakes: ciabatta, spelt, multi-seeded and of course our brown and white rolls, which make second-to-none bacon butties.
I’m always there by 8 o’clock, so, if like me, you like to be up and about early, come and see me and, if you haven’t already, try our freshly baked breads. My advice though, would be not to leave it too late in the day, as I already have a regular following, who make sure that they get exactly what they want!
If you can’t get to see me on Saturdays, or if it’s a fresh sandwich, warm savoury or a scrumptious cream cake you’re dreaming of, I’ll be here with Charlie and the rest of my team, in our shop in Woodhall Way, Molescroft, where you will get the best service and the best bakery products around.
See you soon!
