THOUSANDS of mince pies are expected to fly off the shelves at Joe's Bakery this festive season.
The popular confectionery store, located at the top of Pigsty Hill on Gloucester Road, will be producing around 10,000 of the authentic treats to sell between mid-November and Christmas.
A range of Christmas cakes, stollen fruit cake, and logs will be available from December 1.
Joe's Bakery will also be involved in the Gloucester Road Central Christmas fair - taking place on December 4, from 5.30-8.30pm - selling mince pies and roasted chestnuts, along with free tasters of mulled cider.
Besides gearing up for Christmas, Joe's Bakery is celebrating German month, stocking a variety of Bavarian loaves, from Swabien - made with 80 percent wheat and 20 percent rye - and Konig Ludwig Brot - a classic German bread made with spelt and rye flours. The loaf will be available in 400g or 1,600g.
October was Italian month, with the store stocking an array of mouthwatering sandwiches, Italian breads, and pizza volante.
The bakery has also recently launched a gluten free range - Batch #5 - sourced from Bath Bakery. Coeliac UK approved, the range has been produced in an exclusive gluten free bakery.
All products - including swiss rolls, sponge cakes, flap jacks, pizza bases, wraps, seeded and farmhouse loaves - are securely packaged and sealed, with many being suitable for freezing.
