Imagine my surprise when the price of my favourite wholemeal bloomer from this baker at Borough Market
rose from £2.50p a few weeks ago to £3.00. Last Saturday, it had risen again to £3.80p and seems also to have shrunk.
When I questioned this hike, I was told that the price had not changed for 4 years. A "truth economy" if ever I've heard one.
I just phoned them and was told that they have a new boss who had decided to raise the prices. I asked if business was good as there now seems to be a lot more bread left over than there used to be and was told that it's better than ever. I'm baffled, but sadly won't be buying at these prices
