In Support of Local Bakers on Market Day
One of the things I love about living in Herne Hill is the fact that 2 of our local bakers open on Sundays to bake a lovely selection of fresh bread and cakes. When the Sunday Market came to town I was rather surprised to note the amount of bread, cakes and cookie stalls and wondered what impact they might have on our local bakers. Yes, competition is good, but surely permitting that many stalls selling similar products can't be good for our local bakers?
I have since heard that some of the stall holders were unhappy that the Village Bakery had put up a small stall of its own outside the shop.
Our bakers have been turning out early on a Sunday morning to provide the residents of Herne Hill with a great service long before the Market came to town, and no doubt will continue to do so long after the Market has had its day.
I for one will continue to support my local bakers and enjoy the consistently lovely variety of breads and cakes they offer, which, I might add, are always served with a smile.
