    Easter Weekend

    30th March – 2nd April 2018, Open Good Friday, Easter Sunday & Monday.

    (CLOSED SATURDAY)

    Easter is fairly early this year so as well as emerging spring bulbs, you may catch the last of the snowdrops and aconites. Hellebores seem to flower forever and we recommend a wander through the woodland walk to view the delicate nodding heads of these delightful flowers.

    Bring the whole family along, follow the Easter Trail and feel free to bring along a picnic, if the weather is kind!

    On Good Friday we will open in aid of the National Garden Scheme and all admission fees will be donated to this wonderful charity.

    Free Friday On-site Parking – Refreshments and usual stalls available

    Melton Farmers have developed a reputation for quality meats and produce.

    The main objective of a farmers market is to give an opportuninty for local producers to sell fresh quality produce to local consumers. To create an understanding of quality that the seller can promote to the buyer creating a fair and familiarity to the product.

     

    Please read the information below, for a little insight into just some of our regular traders that we are thrilled to host twice a week providing stunning quality wares and ingredients to our customers:

    1324 Espresso

    Beautiful brewed fresh coffee to drink in or take away ran by the wonderful Darryl and his wife Angela.

    Why 1324? It was the year Melton Mowbray Market got royal approval from King Edward 2nd. It was running for 300 years before that with tolls, so this Market has been in existence for over 1000 years, in fact it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

    Jenny’s Cuisine

    Home cooked Asian and Chinese food freshly prepared to eat on site or take away.

     

    Cards by Marilyn

    Unique handmade cards for all occasions. Special orders by request.

    Fair Game Foods

    Fair Game Foods invite you to come and try our famous Farmers Market succulent pork roast rolls. You can create your own Meat Feast with the selection of cooked meats that we have to offer. Professional, quality outside catering, with over 15 years’ experience, we seek to promote locally sourced ingredients. Customer satisfaction is our number 1 priority.

    Slightly potty

    Slightly potty is a small business, dealing with every aspect of silk flowers. Whether an arrangement, loose flowers, a special occasion, or something in your own pot. I was awarded a Royal Warrant in 2009 by the Queen, and have provided silk flowers for most of the Royal Residences. I started in the Friday farmers market, about twelve years ago, and have remained faithful to this market ever since.

    19 Gales

    19gales Farmhouse foods is a family Business, which is run by the Hollingshead family, who are 3rd generation farmers. 19 Gales is located on a working farm just outside Atherstone in Warwickshire. The farm is 220 acres of a mixture of grass for grazing and growing cereals to feed our animals in the winter months. We pride ourselves on our outdoor herd of British Blue cattle. When visiting 19 Gales Farm you are able to see the cattle grazing outside and then visit our Bakery to see a Steak pie being baked in the oven. The complete chain from start to finish.

    Scarborough Fayre

    Scarborough fayre has been trading for 18 years, selling top quality fresh fish, shellfish and game in season. We pride ourselves on the products that we supply to both retail and catering customers. Our trademark is “Fish so fresh the next of kin have not yet been informed!!”

    Melton Cheeseboard

    We offer the widest range of cheeses in the county with over 150 different varieties to choose from, many of which are sourced locally from Leicestershire and the surrounding counties. We also stock some of the best cheeses that the UK has to offer, in addition to a wide variety of continental cheeses.

    Stilton is our speciality, and we are unique in sourcing our cheeses directly from Long Clawson Dairy, based just five miles outside Melton Mowbray and Cropwell Bishop Creamery, based just over the border into Nottinghamshire.

    Our Stilton is graded to our own specifications at the dairies, before being delivered to our shop, we can therefore guarantee the quality of our Stilton to ensure that you get the best possible cheese without exception.

    However, it’s not all about Stilton! The Melton Cheeseboard are the cheese specialists in Melton Mowbray with a host of other fantastic cheeses to offer, from local Leicester’s – so much better than the bland supermarket offerings – and other great British Farmhouse cheeses.  With a complimentary range of Continental cheeses there’s always a treat in store for the cheese lover.

    Hambleton Bakery

    In September 2008, Julian Carter and Tim Hart opened Hambleton Bakery to produce top quality traditionally made bread for Hambleton Hall and Hart’s Nottingham. In addition to a growing list of wholesale customers (pubs, restaurants, delis, etc.) the bakery now has retail outlets in Exton, Oakham, Market Harborough, West Bridgford, Melton Mowbray and Stamford.

    Initially the aim was to rediscover the taste of good bread. Not the taste of sugar, malt, cheese, onions, olives, sundried tomatoes, poppy seeds etc. etc., but the magical flavour that can be conjured from unadulterated organic flour, salt and water using the slow, traditional processes that made the bread that fed our ancestors.

    Grasmere Farm

    At Grasmere Farm quality, flavour, and tenderness are integral to our philosophy. We are passionate about providing you with affordable, delicious food that is hand crafted by our dedicated butchers and cooks. We combine the benefits of old fashioned farming methods and a blend of innovative yet traditional recipes, to satisfy today’s discerning food lovers. We aim to source all of the ingredients from the local area and try to minimise the use of packaging to limit our environmental impact.

    Grasmere Farm is proud of its reputation for delicious sausages. We are passionate about wholesome, affordable food that is well made and tastes good. From our traditional Lincolnshire Sausage seasoned with sage, to the unique flavour of Smoked Rutland Sausage, there is a sausage for every palate and mood.

    Free Friday On-site Parking – Refreshments and usual stalls available

    Melton Farmers have developed a reputation for quality meats and produce.

    The main objective of a farmers market is to give an opportuninty for local producers to sell fresh quality produce to local consumers. To create an understanding of quality that the seller can promote to the buyer creating a fair and familiarity to the product.

     

    Please read the information below, for a little insight into just some of our regular traders that we are thrilled to host twice a week providing stunning quality wares and ingredients to our customers:

    1324 Espresso

    Beautiful brewed fresh coffee to drink in or take away ran by the wonderful Darryl and his wife Angela.

    Why 1324? It was the year Melton Mowbray Market got royal approval from King Edward 2nd. It was running for 300 years before that with tolls, so this Market has been in existence for over 1000 years, in fact it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

    Jenny’s Cuisine

    Home cooked Asian and Chinese food freshly prepared to eat on site or take away.

     

    Cards by Marilyn

    Unique handmade cards for all occasions. Special orders by request.

    Fair Game Foods

    Fair Game Foods invite you to come and try our famous Farmers Market succulent pork roast rolls. You can create your own Meat Feast with the selection of cooked meats that we have to offer. Professional, quality outside catering, with over 15 years’ experience, we seek to promote locally sourced ingredients. Customer satisfaction is our number 1 priority.

    Slightly potty

    Slightly potty is a small business, dealing with every aspect of silk flowers. Whether an arrangement, loose flowers, a special occasion, or something in your own pot. I was awarded a Royal Warrant in 2009 by the Queen, and have provided silk flowers for most of the Royal Residences. I started in the Friday farmers market, about twelve years ago, and have remained faithful to this market ever since.

    19 Gales

    19gales Farmhouse foods is a family Business, which is run by the Hollingshead family, who are 3rd generation farmers. 19 Gales is located on a working farm just outside Atherstone in Warwickshire. The farm is 220 acres of a mixture of grass for grazing and growing cereals to feed our animals in the winter months. We pride ourselves on our outdoor herd of British Blue cattle. When visiting 19 Gales Farm you are able to see the cattle grazing outside and then visit our Bakery to see a Steak pie being baked in the oven. The complete chain from start to finish.

    Scarborough Fayre

    Scarborough fayre has been trading for 18 years, selling top quality fresh fish, shellfish and game in season. We pride ourselves on the products that we supply to both retail and catering customers. Our trademark is “Fish so fresh the next of kin have not yet been informed!!”

    Melton Cheeseboard

    We offer the widest range of cheeses in the county with over 150 different varieties to choose from, many of which are sourced locally from Leicestershire and the surrounding counties. We also stock some of the best cheeses that the UK has to offer, in addition to a wide variety of continental cheeses.

    Stilton is our speciality, and we are unique in sourcing our cheeses directly from Long Clawson Dairy, based just five miles outside Melton Mowbray and Cropwell Bishop Creamery, based just over the border into Nottinghamshire.

    Our Stilton is graded to our own specifications at the dairies, before being delivered to our shop, we can therefore guarantee the quality of our Stilton to ensure that you get the best possible cheese without exception.

    However, it’s not all about Stilton! The Melton Cheeseboard are the cheese specialists in Melton Mowbray with a host of other fantastic cheeses to offer, from local Leicester’s – so much better than the bland supermarket offerings – and other great British Farmhouse cheeses.  With a complimentary range of Continental cheeses there’s always a treat in store for the cheese lover.

    Hambleton Bakery

    In September 2008, Julian Carter and Tim Hart opened Hambleton Bakery to produce top quality traditionally made bread for Hambleton Hall and Hart’s Nottingham. In addition to a growing list of wholesale customers (pubs, restaurants, delis, etc.) the bakery now has retail outlets in Exton, Oakham, Market Harborough, West Bridgford, Melton Mowbray and Stamford.

    Initially the aim was to rediscover the taste of good bread. Not the taste of sugar, malt, cheese, onions, olives, sundried tomatoes, poppy seeds etc. etc., but the magical flavour that can be conjured from unadulterated organic flour, salt and water using the slow, traditional processes that made the bread that fed our ancestors.

    Grasmere Farm

    At Grasmere Farm quality, flavour, and tenderness are integral to our philosophy. We are passionate about providing you with affordable, delicious food that is hand crafted by our dedicated butchers and cooks. We combine the benefits of old fashioned farming methods and a blend of innovative yet traditional recipes, to satisfy today’s discerning food lovers. We aim to source all of the ingredients from the local area and try to minimise the use of packaging to limit our environmental impact.

    Grasmere Farm is proud of its reputation for delicious sausages. We are passionate about wholesome, affordable food that is well made and tastes good. From our traditional Lincolnshire Sausage seasoned with sage, to the unique flavour of Smoked Rutland Sausage, there is a sausage for every palate and mood.

     

    Robert Bowring Farmer & Butchers

    Robert Bowring Farmer & Butchers was established over 30 years ago supplying quality British local meat to customers throughout the East Midlands. Sold mainly through our shops at Mansfield, Woodhouse, Chesterfield, Shirebrook and Bolsover. We also sell at Farmers Markets in Newark, Bingham, Retford and Melton Mowbray where we stand twice a week Tuesday and Fridays.

    All beef sold through the business is born, reared and fattened on our family farm at Warsop.

    Performing Stars Academy presents the pint-sized, pinstriped classic that’s a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the 1920s.

    Based on the hit 1976 film starring a preteen Scott Baio and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The Muppet Movie, Bugsy Malone is good, clean, comedic fun!
    Two gangs comprised completely of children, square off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan’s gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the “splurge” gun (a weapon that shoots whipped cream). Now, Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last chance that Fat Sam’s gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love, Blousey, but that just isn’t in the cards for our hero.

    Bugsy Malone is a master class in musical comedy.

      Melton Farmers have developed a reputation for quality meats and produce.

      The main objective of a farmers market is to give an opportuninty for local producers to sell fresh quality produce to local consumers. To create an understanding of quality that the seller can promote to the buyer creating a fair and familiarity to the product.

       

      Please read the information below, for a little insight into just some of our regular traders that we are thrilled to host twice a week providing stunning quality wares and ingredients to our customers:

      1324 Espresso

      Beautiful brewed fresh coffee to drink in or take away ran by the wonderful Darryl and his wife Angela.

      Why 1324? It was the year Melton Mowbray Market got royal approval from King Edward 2nd. It was running for 300 years before that with tolls, so this Market has been in existence for over 1000 years, in fact it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

      Jenny’s Cuisine

      Home cooked Asian and Chinese food freshly prepared to eat on site or take away.

       

      Cards by Marilyn

      Unique handmade cards for all occasions. Special orders by request.

      Fair Game Foods

      Fair Game Foods invite you to come and try our famous Farmers Market succulent pork roast rolls. You can create your own Meat Feast with the selection of cooked meats that we have to offer. Professional, quality outside catering, with over 15 years’ experience, we seek to promote locally sourced ingredients. Customer satisfaction is our number 1 priority.

      Slightly potty

      Slightly potty is a small business, dealing with every aspect of silk flowers. Whether an arrangement, loose flowers, a special occasion, or something in your own pot. I was awarded a Royal Warrant in 2009 by the Queen, and have provided silk flowers for most of the Royal Residences. I started in the Friday farmers market, about twelve years ago, and have remained faithful to this market ever since.

      19 Gales

      19gales Farmhouse foods is a family Business, which is run by the Hollingshead family, who are 3rd generation farmers. 19 Gales is located on a working farm just outside Atherstone in Warwickshire. The farm is 220 acres of a mixture of grass for grazing and growing cereals to feed our animals in the winter months. We pride ourselves on our outdoor herd of British Blue cattle. When visiting 19 Gales Farm you are able to see the cattle grazing outside and then visit our Bakery to see a Steak pie being baked in the oven. The complete chain from start to finish.

      Scarborough Fayre

      Scarborough fayre has been trading for 18 years, selling top quality fresh fish, shellfish and game in season. We pride ourselves on the products that we supply to both retail and catering customers. Our trademark is “Fish so fresh the next of kin have not yet been informed!!”

      Melton Cheeseboard

      We offer the widest range of cheeses in the county with over 150 different varieties to choose from, many of which are sourced locally from Leicestershire and the surrounding counties. We also stock some of the best cheeses that the UK has to offer, in addition to a wide variety of continental cheeses.

      Stilton is our speciality, and we are unique in sourcing our cheeses directly from Long Clawson Dairy, based just five miles outside Melton Mowbray and Cropwell Bishop Creamery, based just over the border into Nottinghamshire.

      Our Stilton is graded to our own specifications at the dairies, before being delivered to our shop, we can therefore guarantee the quality of our Stilton to ensure that you get the best possible cheese without exception.

      However, it’s not all about Stilton! The Melton Cheeseboard are the cheese specialists in Melton Mowbray with a host of other fantastic cheeses to offer, from local Leicester’s – so much better than the bland supermarket offerings – and other great British Farmhouse cheeses.  With a complimentary range of Continental cheeses there’s always a treat in store for the cheese lover.

      Hambleton Bakery

      In September 2008, Julian Carter and Tim Hart opened Hambleton Bakery to produce top quality traditionally made bread for Hambleton Hall and Hart’s Nottingham. In addition to a growing list of wholesale customers (pubs, restaurants, delis, etc.) the bakery now has retail outlets in Exton, Oakham, Market Harborough, West Bridgford, Melton Mowbray and Stamford.

      Initially the aim was to rediscover the taste of good bread. Not the taste of sugar, malt, cheese, onions, olives, sundried tomatoes, poppy seeds etc. etc., but the magical flavour that can be conjured from unadulterated organic flour, salt and water using the slow, traditional processes that made the bread that fed our ancestors.

      Grasmere Farm

      At Grasmere Farm quality, flavour, and tenderness are integral to our philosophy. We are passionate about providing you with affordable, delicious food that is hand crafted by our dedicated butchers and cooks. We combine the benefits of old fashioned farming methods and a blend of innovative yet traditional recipes, to satisfy today’s discerning food lovers. We aim to source all of the ingredients from the local area and try to minimise the use of packaging to limit our environmental impact.

      Grasmere Farm is proud of its reputation for delicious sausages. We are passionate about wholesome, affordable food that is well made and tastes good. From our traditional Lincolnshire Sausage seasoned with sage, to the unique flavour of Smoked Rutland Sausage, there is a sausage for every palate and mood.

    Performing Stars Academy presents the pint-sized, pinstriped classic that’s a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the 1920s.

    Based on the hit 1976 film starring a preteen Scott Baio and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The Muppet Movie, Bugsy Malone is good, clean, comedic fun!
    Two gangs comprised completely of children, square off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan’s gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the “splurge” gun (a weapon that shoots whipped cream). Now, Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last chance that Fat Sam’s gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love, Blousey, but that just isn’t in the cards for our hero.

    Bugsy Malone is a master class in musical comedy.

    Welcome back Leicester’s rockabilly pioneers ‘The Drugstore cowboys’. They were formed in 1997, since then this has seen the band taking their brand of Smokin’ roots music to many a spit and sawdust pub, venue and festival all over the U.K and Europe, Nick Whitfield (guitar) Tom Bull (upright bass) and Damon Clarridge (drums) have released the long awaited third cowboys album ‘All Tooled Up’ on Smokin’ Records,

    Whilst the Drugstore Cowboys foundations are without doubt set in the Country/Rockabilly style the bands sound draws from so much more and it would be impossible to try and define the sound of this powerhouse trio with one or two words.. ‘Call it Rockabilly music’ call it Rock “n” Roll, Call it whatever you will? I call it the ‘Good stuff! Traditional roots music played from the heart by passionate musicians who are snatching from all corners and throwing it into a pot says Singer /Guitarist and Frontman ‘Nick Whitfield. Expect the unexpected and a high energy show from rowdy roots rockers ‘the DRUGSTORE COWBOYS!

    other stand in cowboys include…Darren ‘Dazza’ Richards, Double Bass, Kevin Massey, Double Bass, Mark Morgan, Drums, Dave Anderson, Drums, Daniel Hawkins, drums

    Second outing at this cracking town centre boozer..there’s a good smattering of Boubies in Melton too…so let’s have you xxxx

    ‘The Boutones’ were born out of a desire to create something musically a little different. They do play covers, but steer away from the traditional format in terms song choice and style: playing them as though they might be originals. The experience gleaned as professional musicians along with a mutual love of soul, rhythm & blues and Americana plus tight harmonies and a vintage vibe gives the band a unique style. The result is a full diary of festival, private and of course Pub circuit gigs, along with studio time booked for a mini album.

    There’s plenty to see and do at:

    The six- piece where brought together last year by The Specials Bass player Horace Panter, who’s always been a country fan and is made up of seasoned musicians, four of them singing the necessary country harmonies and including dobro, pedal steel, mandolin and banjo playing for that authentic honky tonk sound.

    Performing Stars Academy presents the pint-sized, pinstriped classic that’s a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the 1920s.

    Based on the hit 1976 film starring a preteen Scott Baio and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The Muppet Movie, Bugsy Malone is good, clean, comedic fun!
    Two gangs comprised completely of children, square off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan’s gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the “splurge” gun (a weapon that shoots whipped cream). Now, Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last chance that Fat Sam’s gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love, Blousey, but that just isn’t in the cards for our hero.

    Bugsy Malone is a master class in musical comedy.

    Melton Farmers have developed a reputation for quality meats and produce.

    The main objective of a farmers market is to give an opportuninty for local producers to sell fresh quality produce to local consumers. To create an understanding of quality that the seller can promote to the buyer creating a fair and familiarity to the product.

     

    Please read the information below, for a little insight into just some of our regular traders that we are thrilled to host twice a week providing stunning quality wares and ingredients to our customers:

    1324 Espresso

    Beautiful brewed fresh coffee to drink in or take away ran by the wonderful Darryl and his wife Angela.

    Why 1324? It was the year Melton Mowbray Market got royal approval from King Edward 2nd. It was running for 300 years before that with tolls, so this Market has been in existence for over 1000 years, in fact it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

    Jenny’s Cuisine

    Home cooked Asian and Chinese food freshly prepared to eat on site or take away.

     

    Cards by Marilyn

    Unique handmade cards for all occasions. Special orders by request.

    Fair Game Foods

    Fair Game Foods invite you to come and try our famous Farmers Market succulent pork roast rolls. You can create your own Meat Feast with the selection of cooked meats that we have to offer. Professional, quality outside catering, with over 15 years’ experience, we seek to promote locally sourced ingredients. Customer satisfaction is our number 1 priority.

    Slightly potty

    Slightly potty is a small business, dealing with every aspect of silk flowers. Whether an arrangement, loose flowers, a special occasion, or something in your own pot. I was awarded a Royal Warrant in 2009 by the Queen, and have provided silk flowers for most of the Royal Residences. I started in the Friday farmers market, about twelve years ago, and have remained faithful to this market ever since.

    19 Gales

    19gales Farmhouse foods is a family Business, which is run by the Hollingshead family, who are 3rd generation farmers. 19 Gales is located on a working farm just outside Atherstone in Warwickshire. The farm is 220 acres of a mixture of grass for grazing and growing cereals to feed our animals in the winter months. We pride ourselves on our outdoor herd of British Blue cattle. When visiting 19 Gales Farm you are able to see the cattle grazing outside and then visit our Bakery to see a Steak pie being baked in the oven. The complete chain from start to finish.

    Scarborough Fayre

    Scarborough fayre has been trading for 18 years, selling top quality fresh fish, shellfish and game in season. We pride ourselves on the products that we supply to both retail and catering customers. Our trademark is “Fish so fresh the next of kin have not yet been informed!!”

    Melton Cheeseboard

    We offer the widest range of cheeses in the county with over 150 different varieties to choose from, many of which are sourced locally from Leicestershire and the surrounding counties. We also stock some of the best cheeses that the UK has to offer, in addition to a wide variety of continental cheeses.

    Stilton is our speciality, and we are unique in sourcing our cheeses directly from Long Clawson Dairy, based just five miles outside Melton Mowbray and Cropwell Bishop Creamery, based just over the border into Nottinghamshire.

    Our Stilton is graded to our own specifications at the dairies, before being delivered to our shop, we can therefore guarantee the quality of our Stilton to ensure that you get the best possible cheese without exception.

    However, it’s not all about Stilton! The Melton Cheeseboard are the cheese specialists in Melton Mowbray with a host of other fantastic cheeses to offer, from local Leicester’s – so much better than the bland supermarket offerings – and other great British Farmhouse cheeses.  With a complimentary range of Continental cheeses there’s always a treat in store for the cheese lover.

    Hambleton Bakery

    In September 2008, Julian Carter and Tim Hart opened Hambleton Bakery to produce top quality traditionally made bread for Hambleton Hall and Hart’s Nottingham. In addition to a growing list of wholesale customers (pubs, restaurants, delis, etc.) the bakery now has retail outlets in Exton, Oakham, Market Harborough, West Bridgford, Melton Mowbray and Stamford.

    Initially the aim was to rediscover the taste of good bread. Not the taste of sugar, malt, cheese, onions, olives, sundried tomatoes, poppy seeds etc. etc., but the magical flavour that can be conjured from unadulterated organic flour, salt and water using the slow, traditional processes that made the bread that fed our ancestors.

    Grasmere Farm

    At Grasmere Farm quality, flavour, and tenderness are integral to our philosophy. We are passionate about providing you with affordable, delicious food that is hand crafted by our dedicated butchers and cooks. We combine the benefits of old fashioned farming methods and a blend of innovative yet traditional recipes, to satisfy today’s discerning food lovers. We aim to source all of the ingredients from the local area and try to minimise the use of packaging to limit our environmental impact.

    Grasmere Farm is proud of its reputation for delicious sausages. We are passionate about wholesome, affordable food that is well made and tastes good. From our traditional Lincolnshire Sausage seasoned with sage, to the unique flavour of Smoked Rutland Sausage, there is a sausage for every palate and mood.

     

    Robert Bowring Farmer & Butchers

    Robert Bowring Farmer & Butchers was established over 30 years ago supplying quality British local meat to customers throughout the East Midlands. Sold mainly through our shops at Mansfield, Woodhouse, Chesterfield, Shirebrook and Bolsover. We also sell at Farmers Markets in Newark, Bingham, Retford and Melton Mowbray where we stand twice a week Tuesday and Fridays.

    All beef sold through the business is born, reared and fattened on our family farm at Warsop.

    Although business has been established over 30 years both the farming and butchers have changed and keep changing and you have to change with it!

    Free Friday On-site Parking – Refreshments and usual stalls available

    Melton Farmers have developed a reputation for quality meats and produce.

    The main objective of a farmers market is to give an opportuninty for local producers to sell fresh quality produce to local consumers. To create an understanding of quality that the seller can promote to the buyer creating a fair and familiarity to the product.

     

    Please read the information below, for a little insight into just some of our regular traders that we are thrilled to host twice a week providing stunning quality wares and ingredients to our customers:

    1324 Espresso

    Beautiful brewed fresh coffee to drink in or take away ran by the wonderful Darryl and his wife Angela.

    Why 1324? It was the year Melton Mowbray Market got royal approval from King Edward 2nd. It was running for 300 years before that with tolls, so this Market has been in existence for over 1000 years, in fact it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

    Jenny’s Cuisine

    Home cooked Asian and Chinese food freshly prepared to eat on site or take away.

     

    Cards by Marilyn

    Unique handmade cards for all occasions. Special orders by request.

    Fair Game Foods

    Fair Game Foods invite you to come and try our famous Farmers Market succulent pork roast rolls. You can create your own Meat Feast with the selection of cooked meats that we have to offer. Professional, quality outside catering, with over 15 years’ experience, we seek to promote locally sourced ingredients. Customer satisfaction is our number 1 priority.

    Slightly potty

    Slightly potty is a small business, dealing with every aspect of silk flowers. Whether an arrangement, loose flowers, a special occasion, or something in your own pot. I was awarded a Royal Warrant in 2009 by the Queen, and have provided silk flowers for most of the Royal Residences. I started in the Friday farmers market, about twelve years ago, and have remained faithful to this market ever since.

    19 Gales

    19gales Farmhouse foods is a family Business, which is run by the Hollingshead family, who are 3rd generation farmers. 19 Gales is located on a working farm just outside Atherstone in Warwickshire. The farm is 220 acres of a mixture of grass for grazing and growing cereals to feed our animals in the winter months. We pride ourselves on our outdoor herd of British Blue cattle. When visiting 19 Gales Farm you are able to see the cattle grazing outside and then visit our Bakery to see a Steak pie being baked in the oven. The complete chain from start to finish.

    Scarborough Fayre

    Scarborough fayre has been trading for 18 years, selling top quality fresh fish, shellfish and game in season. We pride ourselves on the products that we supply to both retail and catering customers. Our trademark is “Fish so fresh the next of kin have not yet been informed!!”

    Melton Cheeseboard

    We offer the widest range of cheeses in the county with over 150 different varieties to choose from, many of which are sourced locally from Leicestershire and the surrounding counties. We also stock some of the best cheeses that the UK has to offer, in addition to a wide variety of continental cheeses.

    Stilton is our speciality, and we are unique in sourcing our cheeses directly from Long Clawson Dairy, based just five miles outside Melton Mowbray and Cropwell Bishop Creamery, based just over the border into Nottinghamshire.

    Our Stilton is graded to our own specifications at the dairies, before being delivered to our shop, we can therefore guarantee the quality of our Stilton to ensure that you get the best possible cheese without exception.

    However, it’s not all about Stilton! The Melton Cheeseboard are the cheese specialists in Melton Mowbray with a host of other fantastic cheeses to offer, from local Leicester’s – so much better than the bland supermarket offerings – and other great British Farmhouse cheeses.  With a complimentary range of Continental cheeses there’s always a treat in store for the cheese lover.

    Hambleton Bakery

    In September 2008, Julian Carter and Tim Hart opened Hambleton Bakery to produce top quality traditionally made bread for Hambleton Hall and Hart’s Nottingham. In addition to a growing list of wholesale customers (pubs, restaurants, delis, etc.) the bakery now has retail outlets in Exton, Oakham, Market Harborough, West Bridgford, Melton Mowbray and Stamford.

    Initially the aim was to rediscover the taste of good bread. Not the taste of sugar, malt, cheese, onions, olives, sundried tomatoes, poppy seeds etc. etc., but the magical flavour that can be conjured from unadulterated organic flour, salt and water using the slow, traditional processes that made the bread that fed our ancestors.

    Grasmere Farm

    At Grasmere Farm quality, flavour, and tenderness are integral to our philosophy. We are passionate about providing you with affordable, delicious food that is hand crafted by our dedicated butchers and cooks. We combine the benefits of old fashioned farming methods and a blend of innovative yet traditional recipes, to satisfy today’s discerning food lovers. We aim to source all of the ingredients from the local area and try to minimise the use of packaging to limit our environmental impact.

    Grasmere Farm is proud of its reputation for delicious sausages. We are passionate about wholesome, affordable food that is well made and tastes good. From our traditional Lincolnshire Sausage seasoned with sage, to the unique flavour of Smoked Rutland Sausage, there is a sausage for every palate and mood.

Drawing on a large repertoire of Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, BB King, Status Quo, as well as newer material, they are guaranteed to keep the dance floor rocking.

    Jon plays his Rickenbacker stereo bass, adding harmony and bite to the rhythm. He also sings and plays the tin can as well. His playing style is heavily influenced by blues, two-tone, rock and big-band swing although Chris Squire and Jack Bruce are the inspiration.

  • Farmers Market | Every Tuesday and Friday

    Melton Farmers have developed a reputation for quality meats and produce.

    The main objective of a farmers market is to give an opportuninty for local producers to sell fresh quality produce to local consumers. To create an understanding of quality that the seller can promote to the buyer creating a fair and familiarity to the product.

     

    Please read the information below, for a little insight into just some of our regular traders that we are thrilled to host twice a week providing stunning quality wares and ingredients to our customers:

    1324 Espresso

    Beautiful brewed fresh coffee to drink in or take away ran by the wonderful Darryl and his wife Angela.

    Why 1324? It was the year Melton Mowbray Market got royal approval from King Edward 2nd. It was running for 300 years before that with tolls, so this Market has been in existence for over 1000 years, in fact it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

    Jenny’s Cuisine

    Home cooked Asian and Chinese food freshly prepared to eat on site or take away.

     

    Cards by Marilyn

    Unique handmade cards for all occasions. Special orders by request.

    Fair Game Foods

    Fair Game Foods invite you to come and try our famous Farmers Market succulent pork roast rolls. You can create your own Meat Feast with the selection of cooked meats that we have to offer. Professional, quality outside catering, with over 15 years’ experience, we seek to promote locally sourced ingredients. Customer satisfaction is our number 1 priority.

    Slightly potty

    Slightly potty is a small business, dealing with every aspect of silk flowers. Whether an arrangement, loose flowers, a special occasion, or something in your own pot. I was awarded a Royal Warrant in 2009 by the Queen, and have provided silk flowers for most of the Royal Residences. I started in the Friday farmers market, about twelve years ago, and have remained faithful to this market ever since.

    19 Gales

    19gales Farmhouse foods is a family Business, which is run by the Hollingshead family, who are 3rd generation farmers. 19 Gales is located on a working farm just outside Atherstone in Warwickshire. The farm is 220 acres of a mixture of grass for grazing and growing cereals to feed our animals in the winter months. We pride ourselves on our outdoor herd of British Blue cattle. When visiting 19 Gales Farm you are able to see the cattle grazing outside and then visit our Bakery to see a Steak pie being baked in the oven. The complete chain from start to finish.

    Scarborough Fayre

    Scarborough fayre has been trading for 18 years, selling top quality fresh fish, shellfish and game in season. We pride ourselves on the products that we supply to both retail and catering customers. Our trademark is “Fish so fresh the next of kin have not yet been informed!!”

    Melton Cheeseboard

    We offer the widest range of cheeses in the county with over 150 different varieties to choose from, many of which are sourced locally from Leicestershire and the surrounding counties. We also stock some of the best cheeses that the UK has to offer, in addition to a wide variety of continental cheeses.

    Stilton is our speciality, and we are unique in sourcing our cheeses directly from Long Clawson Dairy, based just five miles outside Melton Mowbray and Cropwell Bishop Creamery, based just over the border into Nottinghamshire.

    Our Stilton is graded to our own specifications at the dairies, before being delivered to our shop, we can therefore guarantee the quality of our Stilton to ensure that you get the best possible cheese without exception.

    However, it’s not all about Stilton! The Melton Cheeseboard are the cheese specialists in Melton Mowbray with a host of other fantastic cheeses to offer, from local Leicester’s – so much better than the bland supermarket offerings – and other great British Farmhouse cheeses.  With a complimentary range of Continental cheeses there’s always a treat in store for the cheese lover.

    Hambleton Bakery

    In September 2008, Julian Carter and Tim Hart opened Hambleton Bakery to produce top quality traditionally made bread for Hambleton Hall and Hart’s Nottingham. In addition to a growing list of wholesale customers (pubs, restaurants, delis, etc.) the bakery now has retail outlets in Exton, Oakham, Market Harborough, West Bridgford, Melton Mowbray and Stamford.

    Initially the aim was to rediscover the taste of good bread. Not the taste of sugar, malt, cheese, onions, olives, sundried tomatoes, poppy seeds etc. etc., but the magical flavour that can be conjured from unadulterated organic flour, salt and water using the slow, traditional processes that made the bread that fed our ancestors.

    Grasmere Farm

    At Grasmere Farm quality, flavour, and tenderness are integral to our philosophy. We are passionate about providing you with affordable, delicious food that is hand crafted by our dedicated butchers and cooks. We combine the benefits of old fashioned farming methods and a blend of innovative yet traditional recipes, to satisfy today’s discerning food lovers. We aim to source all of the ingredients from the local area and try to minimise the use of packaging to limit our environmental impact.

    Grasmere Farm is proud of its reputation for delicious sausages. We are passionate about wholesome, affordable food that is well made and tastes good. From our traditional Lincolnshire Sausage seasoned with sage, to the unique flavour of Smoked Rutland Sausage, there is a sausage for every palate and mood.

     

    Robert Bowring Farmer & Butchers

    Robert Bowring Farmer & Butchers was established over 30 years ago supplying quality British local meat to customers throughout the East Midlands. Sold mainly through our shops at Mansfield, Woodhouse, Chesterfield, Shirebrook and Bolsover.

    Workshop/Yoga day with Anne Bird and Rachel Charlesworth

     

    Are you already to reactivate the Inner Spring within you?
    Do you want to feel a renewed sense of optimism, confidence and connectedness?
    Spring is here and it’s time to rise up with the sun and step into the light of new beginnings. It’s time to reclaim spring’s energy of hope, light, growth and new opportunities with the return of the sun.
    As we leave the embrace of winter we now prepare to give life to the ideas that have been cultivating within.
    This workshop is a celebration of the spring festival of balance where the light and dark are briefly of equal length, before the light increases and the days grow longer than the nights. The wheel of the year is symbolically sliced in half as the days and night are more equally balanced.
    This workshop is for women only to come together and share, feel supported and nourished.
    We will use powerful techniques to release what no longer serves you, activate your inner goddess so you can blossom with the spring and emerge as your most enlightened self.Come and join us in ceremony, self-awareness, rituals and an easy yoga session to cleanse, heal and balance your body, soul and spirit to regenerate powerfully within the extraordinary energy of spring.

    The day will be run by Anne Bird, Women’s life Coach (www.annebird.com) and Rachel Charlesworth, Yoga Teacher, Body Buddha
