Sprout Artisan Bakery
Since its establishment 2014, Sprout has grown from small-scale upstart operating out of Food Connect’s Salisbury HQ to an in-demand wholesaler boasting a lengthy list of top-notch cafes on its distribution roster. For most of the bakery’s existence, fans could only source the brand’s artisanal goods from these eateries or directly from Sprout’s popular stall at the Rocklea markets, meaning many folks had to travel across town for a taste, but now pastry lovers can snag a treat from Sprout’s pop-up retail shop on James Street. This cosy shop front opened at the end of June 2020 and is running for six months only. A bench top is crowded with Sprout’s core range, boasting everything from buttery croissants and creamy egg-custard tarts to seasonal-fruit danishes and crusty loaves of sourdough – all handmade from scratch, lovingly baked and speedily delivered from Sprout’s kitchen down the road. The pop-up will also showcase special goodies on occasion – previous newcomers have included twice-baked cheesecake and raspberry-jam brûlée danishes and pecan-and-chocolate tarts. Those that make a purchase can also snag a cup of batch-brew coffee courtesy of Salt. Coffee Roasters.
