Baking bread for the community – order and collect from the micro-bakery:

Planet Leicester Bakers operates a ‘micro-bakery’ service in Thurmaston, just north of Leicester City. Michelle hand makes and bakes bread fortnightly to order. A Bake Day offers Every Day Treats, which are made with locally milled stoneground organic wheat flour. Also each week a different and exciting Special Treat is offered.  Special orders for small events also very welcome (see below).
