About us

Little Bread Pedlar is committed to delivering excellence in the fields of artisan bread and pastry.

Since our founding in 2010 we have pursued as both a business and individuals an ever-changing standard of the best product. We don't mean the tastiest, or one most true to its original form but the best product as a whole, taking into account its ingredients, the people who make it and the environment it's made in.

Our promise to our clients - the independent restaurants and cafes we supply wholesale, along with the public who we sell to every Saturday of the year at Spa Terminus - is to never settle

This is our promise
