Bakery update

What an unprecedented couple of weeks. First and foremost I want to send my heart out to all those people suffering, both directly and indirectly, as a result of nCov-19. We have a strong local food community here in Cardiff and we are hurting for those who are struggling. Please, if you can, do your best to continue to support small local businesses, who are so critical to the vibrancy of our beloved city.

As for ourselves, we are continuing as normally as possible while we can. We are monitoring advice and are making decisions every day based on the facts with which we are presented and the advice we are given. We are still delivering to delis (listed below) and as it stands, Cardiff farmers markets are continuing – we are hoping to be at Roath and Riverside this week (28th & 29th March) as planned. Please note, the first hour of these markets we will be prioritising the elderly and the vulnerable. We will also be asking for as many contactless card payments as possible to reduce the risk to ourselves and our customers. We will still be taking cash, but we strongly urge you to be to pay by card! We are also asking our customers to respect the logic of social distancing and interact accordingly.

As regards hygiene, we want to reassure you that we are all hygiene trained, and are taking extra steps to reduce risk – we can talk to you about these if you wish.

We will be looking into setting up a pick-up service, so please join our mailing list if you would be interested in hearing more about this https://mailchi.mp/a15fb3a9d860/riversidesourdough. We also provide bread to Blaencamel Organic Boxes – Cardiff for their veg boxes, should this be a viable option for you.

As ever, we really appreciate you, our wonderful customers, and we will do our best to keep going as long as you keep coming. Please feel free to contact us at info@riversidesourdough.co.uk or talk to us if you have concerns or questions.

Much love to you all.
