Box and Delivery Schemes

Bread on a bike

Tues-Fri; 07890 012631; Cavendish Road, CB1 3AF Cambridge, Cambridgeshire; breadonabike@gmail.com

Bread on a bike is a micro bakery based in Cambridge, all the bread is baked by Alison at home in a domestic oven. They launched in January 2013 and ever since have been baking for anyone wanting freshly baked ‘real’ bread. They deliver within cycling distance of CB1 (Mill Road) and for those living further afield collection is available. Payment is cash on delivery and orders are taken from Thursday the week before – certain delivery areas are covered each day, so check on the website to see when they are delivering in your area. The sourdough loaves are baked fresh from Tuesdays through until Fridays and are produced using natural wheat or rye leaven rather than added yeast. They are slowly fermented for maximum flavour and nutrition. The bread is made using local flour, and all other ingredients are either organic or fair trade, and local wherever possible. Unlike most commercial bread, their bread is made with only flour, water and sea salt (all other ingredients are stated) and without hidden additives such as added enzymes and improvers. They accept any special requests of bread type or size of loaf and can provide any further information on products on request. Alison can be found on her website, Facebook and Twitter.

Cambridge Food Assembly

Working slightly differently to other delivery boxes, with the Food Assembly, you order your foods online, then come and collect them at the prearranged collection time and date. For the Cambridge Assembly, that’s 5:30pm- 7pm at The Tram Depot, 3-5 Dover Street, CB1 1DY. There you can meet the suppliers, who benefit from selling directly to the consumer as they get a fair price for their produce, and you know exactly who is producing your food, locally and sustainably. See Facebook  and Twitter for news and events.
