DELICIOUS BREAD, NATURALLY MADEEverything we do to present you with our breads and cakes is natural. Everything we use is fresh and organic. The results are delicious and healthy. Not only can you taste the difference; your body will feel the difference over time. And by using no unnecessary additives, we make a small, but significant ecological contribution.
YEARS OF SKILL AND A LIFETIME OF DEDICATIONEach form of pastry has its own particular skill and it can take many years to master each of them. But baking great pastry is only part of the challenge. We take each pastry form and create fantastic textures and flavours.
HAND-CRAFTED WITH PASSIONOur Patisseries are baked by a team of bakers with a passion for fresh ingredients, delicious flavours and stunning presentation. Our recipes are constantly being improved to ensure that our very high standards are maintained. We offer quality cakes that are unbeatable in size and taste. Pick up a slice for a lunchtime treat or order online in preparation for a special event.
It all began in 2007 when Steve Brown and his four sons decided to trade their bananas for bread! After thirty years in the fruit business in East London, Steve decided to begin a new quest to create bread that tasted just as he remembered it from his childhood. With the help of his four sons and darling daughter, Steve has grown the business from three markets a week to over fifty in the last ten years! The business has expanded to embrace many more members of staff who have slowly become a part of the brownbread family.Starting off with our wide range of breads, we couldn’t help but pair this with pastries and patisseries as well! Who doesn’t love a naughty treat with their afternoon cuppa? Our passion is to provide quality products that you can no longer find in supermarkets. We have sourced some of the best bakers in England to create handmade breads; everything from a classic cottage tin to our superb cholla! Our breads typically contain flour, yeast, water and salt – there are no nasty additives.We load our vans at the crack of dawn seven days a week to drive to our regular town centres, country markets, shows and universities whilst also supplying to local restaurants and events.We are a small business with a big dream to constantly provide the best breads in Britain without unnecessary additives and instead using organic ingredients as much as possible. We want our customers to grow to love our products like we do here at brownbread. That’s why we are constantly on the lookout for markets and shows in the South East, the home counties and the Midlands. No destination is too far and our staff are always on hand to offer expertise and advice on the best bread for you and, of course, to have a little chat with our regulars on a Saturday morning!We are a family run business with a team of dedicated staff who work tirelessly to provide a professional and personal service. So head out to your local market this weekend and come meet us.And one last thing… Just try and resist the Ultra Chocolate Brownie if you can – we dare you!

Today I was at your booth at Worthing on the boardwalk, I bought a gorgeous dark rye bread. I'm from Poland. We did not think that we would ever eat in England a real good bread. And today it happened! This is the best rye bread I ate in England! It is delicious, tasty, fragrant as it should be true bread! Bravo. Our sincerest congratulations.- Stefan and Ola
“Just wanted to say that I bought a tomato and cheese large focaccia last week in Wokingham market and it was, by far, the most delicious bread I have ever tasted. My family and I ate it cold, as it was, no accompaniments as we all agreed that nothing could enhance its flavour. Well done and thank you so much. I will be there on Thursday afternoon to try to get another one. Absolutely 100%delicious. Thank you” -Melinda, Wokingham
“Hi, I bought one of your really chocolately brownies from your stall at Ely market, Cambridgeshire today and I just wanted to say 'It is the best brownie I have ever had' I will definitely be visiting your stall again, Thank you”- Karen Dear, Cambs
“This is merely a brief message to express appreciation at what you do and to thank you for producing such high quality bread - all the more appreciated when what one sees in the supermarket today and tastes afterwards is manifestly inferior and probably injurious in the long run. There is a stall selling your splendid products in the Cornhill, Ipswich, from where I bought a garlic loaf today and several other products. I am glad public awareness of the need for bread to be properly made is rising and dissatisfaction with what ghastly places like (supermarkets) produce under the phoney guise of authenticity is also growing. It speaks volumes that the latter organisation actually pipes the aroma of bread being made into the store to con customers into thinking that what they get there is fresh and healthy. Keep up the good work. I am sure it can't be easy matching supply with growing demand but you seem to be doing well.” - Richard, Ipswich
