Open to all sailors and all classes, whether you are new to racing or a Paralympian everyone is welcome to experience the thrills of a national regatta. The RYA Multiclass Regatta was first held in 2007 and has been inspirational for many sailors, encouraging them to move onwards in the sport and achieve greater personal goals.

Those new to racing, or who have never raced before, can sign up for training focused on getting them to and over the start line. This will include some classroom work on basic rules and understanding the sailing instructions with the majority of the time being spent on the water practicing your starting.

    The Multiclass Event results will be based on two back to back races on Saturday morning and three races on Sunday, two back to back and one in the afternoon.

    On Saturday afternoon there will be a pursuit race to crown the Ken Ellis Champion of Champions. The results from this pursuit race will not count towards the regatta results.

    Great catering over the weekend includes breakfasts, lunches, and evening meals with a formal two course dinner being held on Saturday Night when the Ken Ellis, Champion of Champions trophy will be awarded.

    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.

    ‘Big Dave Bopper’ has been in the music business for 30 years, he started out as a drummer in a band with his two brothers raising money for a number of charities. But it was his love and passion for Rock n Roll that changed his direction in the style of music he enjoys performing. He put together a Rock n Roll band with two other lovers of the music, but after three years Dave decided to go solo! This was the best move he made, the passion that he has for the 50’s and 60’s music is always delivered in his performance and he never fails to entertain the crowd. Where did his stage name come from? Well………those who know Dave will tell you that he is not the slimiest of people hence the Big, Dave for obvious reasons and Bopper because he was a big name in the 60’s with Rock n Roll. Dave has a number of followers who love and support him and his music where ever he is playing; so if you are a fan of the 50’5 and 60’s music he is defiantly worth a watch. ‘Big Dave Bopper is the Big man with the Big heart and a fantastic voice.

Open to all sailors and all classes, whether you are new to racing or a Paralympian everyone is welcome to experience the thrills of a national regatta. The RYA Multiclass Regatta was first held in 2007 and has been inspirational for many sailors, encouraging them to move onwards in the sport and achieve greater personal goals.

      Friday 03 August is given over to training. Experienced racers will have an opportunity to tune up against other sailors and benefit from top tips from coaches on the water. Those new to racing, or who have never raced before, can sign up for training focused on getting them to and over the start line. This will include some classroom work on basic rules and understanding the sailing instructions with the majority of the time being spent on the water practicing your starting.

      The Multiclass Event results will be based on two back to back races on Saturday morning and three races on Sunday, two back to back and one in the afternoon.

      On Saturday afternoon there will be a pursuit race to crown the Ken Ellis Champion of Champions. The results from this pursuit race will not count towards the regatta results.

      Great catering over the weekend includes breakfasts, lunches, and evening meals with a formal two course dinner being held on Saturday Night when the Ken Ellis, Champion of Champions trophy will be awarded.

      You will find more information including the Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions and information on accommodation on our website HERE

      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.

      ‘Big Dave Bopper’ has been in the music business for 30 years, he started out as a drummer in a band with his two brothers raising money for a number of charities. But it was his love and passion for Rock n Roll that changed his direction in the style of music he enjoys performing. He put together a Rock n Roll band with two other lovers of the music, but after three years Dave decided to go solo! This was the best move he made, the passion that he has for the 50’s and 60’s music is always delivered in his performance and he never fails to entertain the crowd. Where did his stage name come from? Well………those who know Dave will tell you that he is not the slimiest of people hence the Big, Dave for obvious reasons and Bopper because he was a big name in the 60’s with Rock n Roll. Dave has a number of followers who love and support him and his music where ever he is playing; so if you are a fan of the 50’5 and 60’s music he is defiantly worth a watch. ‘Big Dave Bopper is the Big man with the Big heart and a fantastic voice.

With this in mind, we decided to welcome your four-legged friends on special ‘Dog Days’. Every Sunday in August, from 4 – 6pm, you can bring along your well-behaved best friend for a lovely evening walk in the gardens.  There is a bowl of water and a dog biscuit for those that join their owners for a cup of tea in the tearoom too!

    Please avoid bringing dogs that are in season, thank you.

Open to all sailors and all classes, whether you are new to racing or a Paralympian everyone is welcome to experience the thrills of a national regatta. The RYA Multiclass Regatta was first held in 2007 and has been inspirational for many sailors, encouraging them to move onwards in the sport and achieve greater personal goals.

      Friday 03 August is given over to training. Experienced racers will have an opportunity to tune up against other sailors and benefit from top tips from coaches on the water. Those new to racing, or who have never raced before, can sign up for training focused on getting them to and over the start line. This will include some classroom work on basic rules and understanding the sailing instructions with the majority of the time being spent on the water practicing your starting.

      The Multiclass Event results will be based on two back to back races on Saturday morning and three races on Sunday, two back to back and one in the afternoon.

      On Saturday afternoon there will be a pursuit race to crown the Ken Ellis Champion of Champions. The results from this pursuit race will not count towards the regatta results.

      Great catering over the weekend includes breakfasts, lunches, and evening meals with a formal two course dinner being held on Saturday Night when the Ken Ellis, Champion of Champions trophy will be awarded.

      You will find more information including the Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions and information on accommodation on our website HERE

    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.

      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.

    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

    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.

     

    Robert Bowring Farmer & Butchers

    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.
