Celtic Bakers

Hammersmith Market, Manor House Gardens, Telegraph Hill and Alexandra Palace markets.

The Celtic Bakers is an artisan, wholesale bakery in North London, situated in the old Chocolate Factory.

One of London’s leading producers of lovingly hand-crafted bread, cakes and patisserie, they supply outstanding produce to the most dynamic and discerning establishments in London. These include top restaurants, hotels, delicatessens and food-halls, amongst others. Using knowledge and techniques passed down and finessed over countless generations, they bake from scratch using natural ingredients, and all our bread is shaped by hand.

Caring for the environment and creating a sustainable existence are integral, driving forces behind how they run their business. The provenance of their ingredients matters to them, and they pride themselves on having forged relationships with a number of suppliers over the years who share our values and ethos. 100% of their food waste is either recycled into animal feed or donated to local community projects. All food resources are precious, and it is important to them that they treat them as such.

Using natural leavens, and the simple ingredients of flour, water and salt, they create a wide range of sourdoughs, from young, creamy and sweet loaves to the more mature sourdoughs which have a real kick to the flavour. Not using yeast in their sourdough breads also makes them easier to digest. Their beautiful range of pastries and cakes are also made fresh each day on site, with authentic methodology and scrupulous attention to detail.
