Eamonn Sweeney set up his bakery in 2001 on his return from Martha’s Vineyard in the US where he honed his baking skills. He started things off initially making cakes and desserts for restaurants and cafes, and soon started selling direct to customers on Northcross Road Market in East Dulwich.
Blackbird have been at the heart of a number of local south London communities, opening their first shop in Herne Hill, swiftly followed by Crystal Palace, East Dulwich, West Norwood and most recently their fantastic new cafe in Queens Road Peckham.
Headed up by the wonderful Amy, the Blackbird Bakery Queens Road was our very first pick up point SE15. Locals love it – where else can you grab a delicious coffee and collect a bounty of local food in one fell swoop?
Our Farmdrop team delivers to the Blackbird Bakery every Wednesday and Friday between 4-7pm. And even more excitingly, you can now also buy Blackbird goodies in our shop, including cakes, tarts, and quiches.
