In 2013, Leaven began as a community restaurant and gastropub with amazing bread in Downtown Somersworth. As word of our 100% sourdough artisanal loaves spread, customers across NH and ME kept coming back from more.
Within a year, Leaven Breads was selling at every major farmers market in the area.
Three years later, we opened a new wholesale baking facility to catch-up with the ever growing demand. While our loaves will travel throughout New England, we remain dedicated to local culture, local ingredients, and our community.
