Welcome to Artisan Foods


We are a small craft bakery, based in East London. Our products are made by hand in small batches by our team of bakers. Fresh pastries, cakes and breads are made daily for Artisan Foods market stalls all over London.

About Artisan Foods


It all started in 1996 when Klaus Kuhnke, a German chef and baker, set out to supply the new breed of independent coffee bars which were opening in London with his brownies, quiches, muffins and loaf cakes. Klaus’s philosophy has always been to use quality ingredients and make each product in small quantities, just the way you would at home.

In 2000 Artisan Foods was invited to trade at Borough Market and became a trader at London Farmers Market’s first weekly market, held in Islington. As other markets sprung up around London, the bakery grew.

Later, Klaus became a partner in another young London business, the German Deli, which sells traditional German foods in its own shop, at markets and through its website. A logical step for Artisan Foods was to broaden its range and start to produce German style breads. In 2008 German master baker Uwe Wolf joined Artisan Foods and was tasked with introducing a variety of typically German breads and cakes to Artisan Foods’ product range. It is these traditional specialities for which Artisan Foods is now best known.

The way to discover what Artisan Foods is all about is to visit one of the market stalls, to try for yourself the treats on offer. Whether it is a giant, soft pretzel, the glossy, mahogany crust studded with salt crystals, or a slice of “bee-sting cake”, covered with honey caramel almond slivers and oozing with pastry cream, you will soon return for more.
