Originally opened  7 years ago by the wonderful Tom and Maddie, deep in the heart of Northampton’s ‘Boot and Shoe Quarter’. It’s discreetly nestled in the back streets alongside the Renowned ‘Crocket and Jones’ shoe factory. Magee street was taken on by Elliot and Alfie and enjoyed incredible success. Now into its third ownership Magee street Bakery is centre of community life and a place to buy wonderful bread and pastries, where everything is produced on site.

Our Sourdough is a 24-hour slow fermented bread made from the simplest of ingredients, only flour, salt and water.

We use an aged sourdough starter or ‘Mother’, (which was lovingly named ‘Olive’ by Magee Street Bakery creator’s daughter). This is the vital ingredient that gives us the unique flavour of our bread.

Baked Daily the process begins 24 hours before, allowing the bread to develop slowly for a delicious, complex taste and to deliver the distinctive ‘sour’ flavour.

We offer the option of plain or seeded loaves which both include white and wholemeal flour(Locally sourced from suppliers Heygates which means minimal carbon footprint) giving the bread a richer, deeper texture and taste.

We serve a selection of beverages from the locally roasted specialty coffee from Carrara to a range of loose leaf tea from Brew Tea Co. and some healthy soft drinks courtesy of Karma Drinks

We offer milk alternatives including Oatly oat milk, soya milk and coconut.
