Attendees Emsworth Market -18th June 2022
St Peter's Square, Emsworth, PO10 7AG
, Basingstoke, Hampshire
A Basing Bakes was started in 2012 by Helen Lang who has a long history in the catering industry. Helen started as a school cook, then progressed to an agency chef and was later employed by a local golf club in their kitchen. When Helen decided to set up her own baking business, the difficulty was deciding which route to go down.
To begin with, Helen was baking primarily regular goods made with wheat flour, but she started to get requests for gluten free products. As time progressed, she heard from several friends who had Coeliac disease; they said that they couldn’t find good quality gluten free products on the high street. After looking into this and indeed trying some of these GF goods, she decided to start producing her own GF products alongside the regular goods.
The demand for GF food was so high, that in 2015 she made the decision to produce solely GF goods, and made a second kitchen dedicated to gluten free baking. She continued to sell to retail outlets until the end of 2017 and in 2018, A Basing Bakes joined Hampshire Farmer's Markets. Consequently, HFM is now the primary route to market for A Basing Bakes.
Helen’s husband Harvey, has always been present at the Farmer’s Markets, and in 2021, having taken early retirement, he became a full-time partner in the business, and now helps in production and other areas.
A Basing Bakes is always evolving, and they have recently embraced the new trend for plant based food by incorporating a new gluten free vegan pie into their range of products.
For those who are not familiar with their award-winning products (they have won five Great Taste Awards in the last six years), they sell the following gluten free products at HFM markets:
- Chicken, Leek & Bacon Pie
- Chicken, White Wine & Tarragon Pie
- Beef & Ale Pie
- Beef, Mushrooms & Red Wine Pie

- Butternut Squash, Goat's Cheese & Spinach Pie
- Vegan Pie (Aubergine, Olives, Tomatoes, Peppers)
- Leek & Tunworth Cheese Quiche
- Brie & Bacon Quiche
- Goats Cheese & Spinach Quiche
- Smoked Trout Quiche or Broccoli and Stilton Quiche
- Sausage Rolls

Sweet selection (this varies but as an example they have Bakewell tarts, fruit pies, mini cakes and biscuits)
