SOMERSWORTH — After a year of hibernation, one of the Seacoast’s favorite bread bakeries is firing up its ovens and bringing their loaf throughout the coast. Leaven, a gastropub and sourdough bread bakery that opened in downtown Somersworth in 2013, closed its restaurant last year to focus on the growing demand for its staple product – 100 percent sourdough artisanal bread.

As co-founder of Leaven, Emmett Soldati, shares, “It was hard to keep pace for demand with the small baking facility we had. What we thought would be a temporary summer-market space ended up being used year round. We’ve dreamed about finding a larger and more appropriate space. The best part is that we’re still baking in Somersworth.”

Leaven, using the name ‘Leaven Breads’ has ambitious plans to scale, thanks to a new partner and owner. Maine restaurateur Jon Adelson first got involved with Leaven in 2016. Having been a big fan of the company, and a budding sourdough enthusiast and home-baker, he reached out to Soldati to offer his talents and ideas.
