    Melton Farmers have developed a reputation for quality meats and produce from our field to fork Market Traders.

    The main objective of a Farmers Market is to give an opportunity 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.

    Head down to the Melton Mowbray Market on a Tuesday and you will find a vast variety of stalls, livestock, antiques and much more.

    Antiques

    The Antiques Fair has been building up from its small creation to what now must be the central buying and selling arena in Melton on Tuesdays with great atmosphere and enthusiasm.

    Anything can be picked up for a bargain from genuine antiques to future classic designs.

    The list of items usually available would be endless so here is a selection:

    Silver, brass, copper, glass, jewellery, postcards, small and medium sized furniture, cigarette cards, china, ceramics, tea services, and novelties.

    Livestock Market

    Also on Tuesdays is the traditional livestock market, including fur & feather, farmers market, plus poultry, pets, timber etc.
    There has been a livestock market on this site in Melton for over 1,000 years!

    Farmer’s Market

    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:

    Feast and Furious

    At Feast and the Furious we smoke all sorts of foods over real wood and make delicious hot sauces to go with them!

    We cold smoke cheeses such as Stilton, Red Leicester, Cheddar, Halloumi, Brie and Mozzarella over oak, beech and applewood for example. We smoke nuts such as salted roasted peanuts which are really popular and a great snack item. We also smoke salted butter, salt, garlic and many other things that we are adding to the list over time.

    We also hot smoke beef brisket and pulled pork which we will sell portioned and packaged for you to enjoy at home and it’s what we normally serve on our food truck as well. We take our food truck to events, weddings and festivals and it is available for private hire events.

    Turners Quality Bakers

    Turners quality bakers produce a full range of traditional English bread and rolls as well as a fantastic evolving range of sour dough including spelt, rye, corn, Mediterranean and soda bread to name a few.

    Based at Cropwell bishop they have recently joined us in the Farmer’s market in one of our Units.

    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.

    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.

    Melton Farmers have developed a reputation for quality meats and produce from our field to fork Market Traders.

    The main objective of a Farmers Market is to give an opportunity 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:

    Dickinson & Morris – Tuesday & Friday

    Melton Mowbray Pork Pies
    Dickinson & Morris has been baking Melton Mowbray Pork Pies since 1851. We are the oldest remaining bakers of the authentic Pork Pie.
    Premium ingredients, time-honoured recipes and attention to detail have made the Dickinson & Morris name what it is today. The host of awards collected by both the shops – through the pork pies, sausages and most importantly the staff – along with media recognition, reflects this achievement.

    Feast and Furious – Tuesday

    At Feast and the Furious we smoke all sorts of foods over real wood and make delicious hot sauces to go with them!

    We cold smoke cheeses such as Stilton, Red Leicester, Cheddar, Halloumi, Brie and Mozzarella over oak, beech and applewood for example. We smoke nuts such as salted roasted peanuts which are really popular and a great snack item. We also smoke salted butter, salt, garlic and many other things that we are adding to the list over time.

    We also hot smoke beef brisket and pulled pork which we will sell portioned and packaged for you to enjoy at home and it’s what we normally serve on our food truck as well. We take our food truck to events, weddings and festivals and it is available for private hire events.

    1324 Espresso – Tuesday, Friday & Sunday

    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 – Tuesday, Friday & Sunday

    Fair Game Foods – Tuesday

I started in the Friday farmers market, about twelve years ago, and have remained faithful to this market ever since.

    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.

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

    (CLOSED SATURDAY)

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

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

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