    Melton Mowbray Farmers Market
    33 Scalford Rd, Melton Mowbray LE13 1JY, UK

    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.

    Hanwell Wine Estate
    2 Melton Rd, Melton Mowbray LE14 3QG, UK

    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

The Vale of Belvoir is a vibrant and lively area with a wealth of events ranging from brilliantly organised sporting events to food fayres and long-established music festivals.  We spend a lot of time searching for events in Melton Mowbray and the surrounding villages and receive many contributions from the community and event organisers.  If you have an event in Melton Mowbray or the surrounding area that you know about or are involved in running, please let us know and we’ll include it. There’s no charge for this and we are happy to support local events.

Please contact us if you would like to include anything on the events page.

As well as the events happening in Newark, Melton & Grantham, the busier towns of Nottingham, Leicester and Derby are also within an easy drive.  Check our Facebook & Twitter pages for the very latest news.

Make sure you also check out the list of the area’s main attractions listed here. From beautiful National Trust properties to the thrill of skydiving centres, there really is something for everyone.  There’s also a wealth of great quality local accommodation if you’re planning a longer stay.
