    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

      There will be entertainment for you to enjoy; gin connoisseurs and fellow gin lovers happy to share their enthusiasm; and, if you should feel a little peckish, there’s a food offer to wow you.

    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.

    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.

    3 Main St, Grantham NG32 1QR, UK
    This is a very special Sunday Free Session – Gary Hall is a must-see musician, and we’re very, very lucky to have him visiting.

    Gary Hall was born and raised in the north of England. He released his first album “Garage Heart” for Run River Records in 1989, to much critical acclaim. This culminated in being voted second best album of that year in the Folk Roots end of year poll, sandwiched between Bob Dylans “Oh Mercy” and “The Healer” by John Lee Hooker. After an extensive European tour to promote the record with his band The Stormkeepers, “Wide Open to the World” was released in 1991, to more critical acclaim.

    In 1993 Hall relocated to America where he made two solo albums in Nashville for Round Tower Records. “What Goes Around” was released in 1993 and “Twelve Strings & Tall Stories” in 1996, the latter being described by renowned British music journalist John Tobler as “an album containing one classic after another”.

    In 1997 a deal was signed with Goldrush Music for the release of “Return to the Flame” and Hall embarked on an extensive tour schedule in support of the album, sharing the stage along the way with songwriters the calibre of John Prine, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt.

    In 1999, after a decade of cheap motels, white lines and one night stands, Hall hung up his travellin’ shoes and settled back in England, where he set up the Voodoo Rooms recording studios to produce up-and-coming singer/songwriters.

    In 2011 he re-emerged with “That Old Brand New”, his first solo album in fifteen years, followed in 2013 by “Winning Ways on Losing Streaks”.

    His latest offering “Warm Valve Glow” was, once again, produced by Hall at his Voodoo Rooms Studios and uses the same cutting crew he has worked with in the last decade. Featuring eleven original songs of fresh and soulful rock ‘n roll roots music, drenched in all the essential ingredients of folk, blues and Americana, this album sees Hall continue to march to his own inimitable beat !

    ‘Gary Hall, Celtic soul man, infused with the epic sweep of Springsteen.’ – The Guardian

    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.

    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.

    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.
