Free local traders’ map is here!

A map guiding visitors to all the traders in Haxby is now available free from Haxby Bakehouse.

The map, expertly drawn by local Sixth Form student Sam Brown, shows 38 businesses in the centre of Haxby, points to those in Wigginton, and lists almost 100 businesses operating out of the area.

We’ve produced it to show both local people and visitors the huge variety of businesses which make us proud to be part of Haxby. Because whether you’re shopping, eating, drinking, exercising or pampering, you need go no further.

Bakehouse owner Tina Clayton said: “Haxby and Wigginton offer just about everything you could need, in terms of both shopping and leisure, and someone getting off a bus in The Village might not necessarily realise that.

“I asked Sam to come up with a map displaying how many shops there are in The Village alone and I think he’s done a brilliant job.”

The map is being distributed to local residents with the Local Link and is also available to pick up free from Haxby Bakehouse.

Eat in at Haxby Bakehouse

Now you can eat in at Haxby Bakehouse, thanks to our smart new seating area for customers who can’t wait to get home to devour our fantastic bread and deli products.

Take your pick from breakfast, lunch, morning coffee or an afternoon snack. Choose from our Specials Board,  deli delights, or try one of our freshly-made sandwiches – all served with garnishes including chutney, salad, pickles, coleslaw and potato salad. We also make gorgeous toasties.

Relax and watch the world go by on our high stools at the window. Or fluff up the cushions and chill out on our corner bench with a table. You’re perfectly placed to admire our old bread mixer, now repurposed as a plant holder.

You can also browse our second-hand cookbook collection, which we’re selling to raise funds to help the people of Ukraine. And if you fancy some fresh air, our outside seating’s waiting for you.

A new counter layout gives us more space to display our fabulous wares – and we think it all looks rather good. If you haven’t been in for a while, come and check it out and let us know what you think. Oh, and don’t forget our new opening hours: 9am to 5pm Tuesday to Saturday.

New Netherton Foundry cookware now in stock

If you’re looking for a stylish pan for life which conducts heat perfectly with no hot spots, check out our range of cast iron pans, woks and cooking plates from Netherton Foundry.

The Shropshire-based foundry uses traditional methods, local supply partners and sustainable materials to make the distinctive, elegant cookware with a black matt finish, oak handles and brass fittings.

We’ve been stocking them since 2019, when we were impressed by this relatively small family business which shared our values – and made a product we just loved using. Since then they’ve been name-checked by several famous chefs and had numerous write-ups in national publications.

The range comes pre-seasoned with flax oil for a non-stick durable finish. No chemicals or PTFE (commercially known as Teflon) are used in the coating of the plates and they work equally well on ranges, electric, gas, ceramic halogen and induction hobs. 

The range includes:

  • Iron saucepans and lids
  • Two sizes of woks
  • Black iron griddle and baking plate for use in the oven, under the grill, on the hob or open fires.
  • Pizza peels with long and short handles… perfect for wood-fired pizza ovens
  • A stunning tortilla press which is perfect for authentic Mexican tortillas


Prices start at £50 – which is really reasonable when you consider these substantial kitchen essentials are made to use, treasure and pass on.

Pop along and choose your Netherton Foundry classic today. You can feel they’re solidly-made, yet not too heavy. And the craftsmanship is plain to see. We’re really proud to stock this range at the Haxby Bakehouse.

A taste to relish!

We love hearing about the many ways our customers enjoy Haxby Bakehouse breads and deli products – and chutneys, jams and other preserves consistently top the list.

It prompted us to seek out a local supplier who matched us for flavour, consistency and enough quirkiness to set them apart… and local producer The Fruity Kitchen ticked all the boxes.

The little jam factory in nearby Sutton-on-the-Forest is just as passionate about getting every jar right as we are about each loaf. When we started using its chutneys and relishes in our hand-made sandwiches, customers loved them so much they wanted to buy their own.

So now we’re proud to stock Haxby Bakehouse-branded chutneys and relishes, jams and marmalades, all lovingly produced in small batches by The Fruity Kitchen. The range includes Autumn Chutney with Black Sheep Ale, Hot & Spicy Chutney, Apricot and Ginger Chutney and Hamburger Relish. Ask for them the next time you order a sandwich – or treat yourself to a whole jar!

Father’s Day gifts for every budget

Stuck for ideas for Dad this Father’s Day? You’ll find just the thing to make his day really special at Haxby Bakehouse Deli, where our range suits every budget.

Selection of cheeseboards

Etched enamel Roost coffee mugs

If he’s a foodie fan, we’ll make up a cheese and/or charcuterie box to the value you specify. The wide speciality range includes cheese from independent makers near and far. The luxury charcuterie comes from suppliers including Lishman’s of Ilkley.

We sell stylish Haxby Bakehouse cheeseboards, as well as statement Lytton House cheese servers, hand-made from acacia wood and complete with a cheese knife.

Another popular range is our Falcon enamelware, a timeless design in chic colours which includes plates, an espresso cup and perfect latte-sized tumbler. If he likes a bigger mug, treat him to an etched enamel Roost coffee mug, a perfect gift to go with a pack of Roost coffee produced in small batches by the Malton-based family roastery.

We’ve got an amazing range of cheese crackers, olives, fresh produce including figs and asparagus, deli treats including savoury pies and quiches, amazing cakes, plus (of course!) the best range of bread you could possibly hope for. And you can present your haul in a unique Haxby Bakehouse tote bag (below), topping off dad’s special day with all the street cred he’ll need.

Bakehouse proud to be part of Producer Markets

Tang Hall Producer Market

One of the best parts of our mission to produce the finest traditional, additive-free bread is getting out and meeting our customers, as well as other like-minded local producers.

Fabulous locally-grown and made produce

That’s why we love the monthly Producer Markets held in Tang Hall, along with the weekly markets held every Wednesday night. If you haven’t been yet you’re seriously missing out.

Stall-holders at the market are all local, small-scale food growers and makers selling organic, local, sustainably-grown produce like veg, fruit, meat, plants, cakes, eggs and dairy, oils, dried fruit and seeds, plus jams and chutneys. There’s also gorgeous takeaway food and hot drinks.

Phil manning the Haxby Bakehouse stall. Should have taken the pic earlier when it was full!

They meet at Tang Hall Community Centre (out in the car park at the moment) as part of Food Circle York’s ambition of creating a new sustainable food system to bring affordable local fresh product to local people.

Food Circle York was set up by super-chef Joe Fennerty, who’s worked in the finest restaurants (currently Skosh York) as a bread and pastry chef. The markets are held at Tang Hall Community Centre, at the junction of Fifth Avenue and Melrosegate, on Wednesdays from 4-6pm and the last Saturday in every month from 12-2pm.

Phil, the Haxby Bakehouse owner-baker, mans our stall at the Producer Markets, and our bread is also available at the Wednesday night markets. See you there!

One stop shop for a scrumptious picnic

The new deli fridge is packed with yummy things

Haxby Bakehouse Deli’s getting summer ready with an expanded charcuterie range and enough mouth-watering favourites to make any snack, picnic or (outdoor) gathering exceedingly special.

We’ve selected the best local produce, freshly made in small batches, because a) we all deserve a treat and b) it’s more important than ever to support independent businesses from down the road.

Enjoy your Bakehouse treats right outside the door

You don’t even have to travel home to enjoy your meal: our outdoor benches are back so you can devour your deli treats, freshly-made sandwich, plus a hot or cold drink, right outside our door.

We’ve brought in a new fridge and crammed it with hand-crafted pies and quiches from The Pie Kitchen, York, as well as locally-made savoury pies, sausage rolls and Scotch eggs. Add to that a stunning selection of Silver & Green olives which has been flying out of the shop – plus there’s patés, balsamic onions, sun blush tomatoes, coleslaw and chutneys supplied by local producers.

The charcuterie range from award-winning Lishman’s of Ilkley, and the smoked fish supplied by the renowned Staal Smokehouse near Beverley are simply amazing.

Don’t forget Haxby bread – and our yummy selection of cheeses. Plus you can round it off with one or two of our irresistible cakes produced daily by Sophie at BakeHouse Barn.

This summer is going to be simply scrumptious!

Garofalo pasta now on sale at the deli

As artisan bakers we’re full of respect for food made properly, which is why we jumped at the chance to add Garofalo pasta to our deli range.

The company combines artisan tradition with industrial innovation to produce dried pasta that we think is stunning. They’re also big on their environmental and social responsibilities, which is a huge plus for us.

Garofalo are obsessed with the taste, colour and “lively dish presence” of their pasta.  They talk about its “outstanding personality” and ensure it delivers “a unique tactile experience in the mouth.”

Spend any time with us and you’ll realise we’re similarly obsessive about our bread. So we recognise the signs of quality when we see it.

We now stock Garofalo’s Orzo, Macaroni and Orecchiette, all made in the celebrated dried pasta producing area of Gragnano, in southern Italy. That’s alongside our Seggiano range of Tuscan organic pasta, La Molisana tagliarini from Campobasso, southern Italy, and the brilliant Yorkshire Pasta from Malton.

Give them a try and show ‘em at home how proper pasta tastes. You won’t look back.
