Bakers Bring Fresh Life to The Market
As Scarborough Market prepares for a major transformation, two local bakers are doing their bit to bring something new, exciting and fresh to shoppers.
Jasmine Melville and Jackson Boston have just opened The Local Loaf bakery in the market, selling delicious handmade bread.
The pair specialise in baking hand crafted, additive-free, fresh artisan bread using the best quality ingredients, including locally-grown and milled organic Yorkshire flour.
Their traditional breads include, farmhouse loafs, cobs, bloomers, batons and speciality breads. They will also be offering fresh pasties, teacakes, buns and scones.
Jack and Jasmine are passionate about using all natural ingredients, so their bread is free of any harmful chemicals and bursting with more nutrition and taste.
“The Local Loaf Bakery keeps things simple and upholds the traditional time-honoured methods of baking bread.
“Real bread has depth of flavour and a chewy crust that you just wouldn't find on a supermarket shelf. We hope that by highlighting our fresher, healthier and more nutritious approach, we can encourage people to take a step away from mass produced bread, towards The Local Loaf for bread made with care and passion.”
As well as selling bread and baked goods, Jack and Jasmine will also be offering locally-made preserves.
“We’re keen to promote some of the wonderful produce that Yorkshire has to offer on our stall.
“Local is a big part of what we’re about, developing a strong presence in the community is very important to us. We love living in Scarborough and feel that this way of business will truly support and strengthen our hometown”.
Their arrival comes at an exciting time for the market as it prepares for a huge transformation.
Scarborough Borough Council and the University of Hull are working together to redevelop the market, following a £2.7m grant from the Coastal Communities Fund, administered by the Big Lottery Fund.
The partners are currently inviting the public’s thoughts via on online survey, available at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ScarMarketAndVaults
The market will get a complete makeover, during which a new mezzanine floor will be added, to create space for new shops, offices and a café.
The physical alterations will be joined by two exciting online projects. The University of Hull is creating an online market, a virtual Scarborough market on a single website, with lots of different traders but one pay point.
It is also creating an online market intelligence system. This will be an invaluable source of data and analysis of key trends and influences on the local business environment. It will help those running businesses or considering setting up a business in and around Scarborough. For example, it will enable a greater understanding of how changes in the local market and wider business environment (political, economic, social and technological) might impact upon their costs and revenues and thus upon their business performance.
