    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.

    Dickinson & Morris has been baking Melton Mowbray Pork Pies since 1851. We are the oldest remaining bakers of the authentic Pork Pie in the town centre today.

    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.

    Turners Quality Bakers – Tuesday

    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.

    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

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

    Fair Game Foods – Tuesday

    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.

    Sharon has supported our Market for many years and sells a fantastic range of seasonal & high quality fruit and vegetables on her weekly stall.

    Sharon has a great customer base who buy from her each week at the Market

    Slightly potty – Friday

    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.

    Scarborough Fayre – Tuesday & Friday

    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!!”

    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.

    At Grasmere Farm quality, flavour, and tenderness are integral to our philosophy.

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.

    College Taster Day and Open Day – Brooksby Campus

    • Date: Sat, 02 March 2019
    • Time: 09:00/10:00 – 13:00
    • Venue: Brooksby Campus
    • Address: Leicestershire, LE14 2LJ

     


    Are you interested in studying at BMC next year? Come along to our Brooksby Campus Taster Day and Open Day to find out what it’s like to be a student at BMC!
    During this event, you will be able to take a tour of the campus, as a part of the Open Day, OR get involved in a ‘Taster Day’ workshop in your chosen course area. Please make sure you register for the correct event by clicking either the ‘Register for the Taster Day’ OR Register for the Taster Day’ button above. 

    What’s the difference between a Taster Day and an Open Day?

    The Taster Day (9am – 1pm)

    A Taster Day is a structured event that runs from 9am – 1pm. You will arrive at 9am for refreshments and a welcome talk. You will then participate in a two-hour taster session in your chosen subject area from 10am – 12pm. During this time, there will also be a series of talks available for parents/guardians on areas such as Admissions, Apprenticeships, Higher Education, Student Services, Additional Learning Support, Transport, and Maths and English.

    A Taster Day is a fantastic opportunity to experience first-hand what it’s like to study at BMC. Whether its handling some exotics in our Animal Care Centre, learning about lambing with our Agriculture tutors, or playing some sports on our 3G pitch, we’ve got something to suit all tastes*.

    Please note: If you are booking to attend a Taster Day, you will need to book by the 25th February to secure a place, after this date we cannot guarantee there will be a space available, so book early to avoid disappointment!

     

    The Open Day (10am – 1pm)

    The Open Day is much less structured than the Taster Day. The campus will be open from 10am – 1pm for you to have a look around our fantastic facilities, meet our expert teaching staff, and learn more about the range of courses we offer. The Open Day is perfect if it’s your first time to BMC and you want to get a feel for the College, or if you are interested in a few different courses and want to learn more so you can decide which course is right for you.

    We also have staff available who can assist with any of your funding or transport questions, as well as our student support teams who can talk to you about any extra help you might need during your time at college.

     

    Visit the Brooksby Campus if you are interested in:

    • Agriculture
    • Animal Care
    • Construction and Joinery
    • Countryside Management
    • Equine Studies
    • Floristry

    Doddington Hall, Doddington, Lincoln LN6 4RU, UK

    Join us for a spectacular pageant of spring bulbs, beginning in early February with wonderful snowdrops, Cyclamen coum, and Crocus tommasinianus, continuing through March and early April with drifts of Lent lilies and our unique collection of heritage daffodils (including rare Edwardian varieties), winter aconites and snake’s head fritillaries until May.

    The spring bulb pageant was started in the 1950s by Claire’s grandparents Ralph and Antonia Jarvis. Claire’s father Antony Jarvis and late mother Victoria continued the work and Antony estimates that he has planted or moved 150,000 bulbs in the last 25 years. Claire added a further 5000 snowdrops to the nature trail with some money she inherited from her maternal Grandmother Cecily Mathias. ‘Cecily’s Snowdrops’ have now been enjoyed by visitors since 2005.

    Don’t forget Mothering Sunday – 31 March

    Bulbs are a spectacular feature at Doddington. Our Gardens are full of Spring bulbs and filled with drifts of golden daffodils during March. Treat your mum to a gorgeous stroll in the Gardens, a spot of retail therapy and perhaps even some delicious tea and homemade cake in our Café.

    Gardens open 10 February – 31 March, SUNDAYS ONLY, 11am – 4.30pm. Garden admission applies: Adult £7, Child 3.50, Family £18.

    Tickets available on arrival at the Gatehouse. Historic Houses & RHS member cards accepted.

      College Taster Day and Open Day – Brooksby Campus

      • Date: Sat, 02 March 2019
      • Time: 09:00/10:00 – 13:00
      • Venue: Brooksby Campus
      • Address: Leicestershire, LE14 2LJ

       


      Are you interested in studying at BMC next year? Come along to our Brooksby Campus Taster Day and Open Day to find out what it’s like to be a student at BMC!
      During this event, you will be able to take a tour of the campus, as a part of the Open Day, OR get involved in a ‘Taster Day’ workshop in your chosen course area. Please make sure you register for the correct event by clicking either the ‘Register for the Taster Day’ OR Register for the Taster Day’ button above. 

      What’s the difference between a Taster Day and an Open Day?

      The Taster Day (9am – 1pm)

      A Taster Day is a structured event that runs from 9am – 1pm. You will arrive at 9am for refreshments and a welcome talk. You will then participate in a two-hour taster session in your chosen subject area from 10am – 12pm. During this time, there will also be a series of talks available for parents/guardians on areas such as Admissions, Apprenticeships, Higher Education, Student Services, Additional Learning Support, Transport, and Maths and English.

      A Taster Day is a fantastic opportunity to experience first-hand what it’s like to study at BMC. Whether its handling some exotics in our Animal Care Centre, learning about lambing with our Agriculture tutors, or playing some sports on our 3G pitch, we’ve got something to suit all tastes*.

      Please note: If you are booking to attend a Taster Day, you will need to book by the 25th February to secure a place, after this date we cannot guarantee there will be a space available, so book early to avoid disappointment!

       

      The Open Day (10am – 1pm)

      The Open Day is much less structured than the Taster Day. The campus will be open from 10am – 1pm for you to have a look around our fantastic facilities, meet our expert teaching staff, and learn more about the range of courses we offer. The Open Day is perfect if it’s your first time to BMC and you want to get a feel for the College, or if you are interested in a few different courses and want to learn more so you can decide which course is right for you.

      We also have staff available who can assist with any of your funding or transport questions, as well as our student support teams who can talk to you about any extra help you might need during your time at college.

       

      Visit the Brooksby Campus if you are interested in:

      • Agriculture
      • Animal Care
      • Construction and Joinery
      • Countryside Management
      • Equine Studies

    • Spring Bulb Pageant - Doddington Hall

      02/03/2019
      Doddington Hall, Doddington, Lincoln LN6 4RU, UK
      Doddington Hall, Doddington, Lincoln LN6 4RU, UK

      Join us for a spectacular pageant of spring bulbs, beginning in early February with wonderful snowdrops, Cyclamen coum, and Crocus tommasinianus, continuing through March and early April with drifts of Lent lilies and our unique collection of heritage daffodils (including rare Edwardian varieties), winter aconites and snake’s head fritillaries until May.

      The spring bulb pageant was started in the 1950s by Claire’s grandparents Ralph and Antonia Jarvis. Claire’s father Antony Jarvis and late mother Victoria continued the work and Antony estimates that he has planted or moved 150,000 bulbs in the last 25 years. Claire added a further 5000 snowdrops to the nature trail with some money she inherited from her maternal Grandmother Cecily Mathias. ‘Cecily’s Snowdrops’ have now been enjoyed by visitors since 2005.

      Don’t forget Mothering Sunday – 31 March

      Bulbs are a spectacular feature at Doddington. Our Gardens are full of Spring bulbs and filled with drifts of golden daffodils during March. Treat your mum to a gorgeous stroll in the Gardens, a spot of retail therapy and perhaps even some delicious tea and homemade cake in our Café.

      Gardens open 10 February – 31 March, SUNDAYS ONLY, 11am – 4.30pm. Garden admission applies: Adult £7, Child 3.50, Family £18.

      Tickets available on arrival at the Gatehouse. Historic Houses & RHS member cards accepted.

      Admission into the Castle is free for wheelchair users (ground floor only). You’ll find WCs for disabled visitors in the castle and ticket office car park.

Due to the various terrains around the Castle, gardens and woodlands, we recommend flat sensible shoes with grips.

      Why not combinie your visit to the Engine Yard, where you will find a superb offering of quality retailers & food outlets, or a short drive or walk to some of the great cafes & inns on the doorstep.

    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.

    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.

    About Louise
    Based in Grantham, Louise spent six years at art school, three years of which were at Kingston University where she completed a degree in Illustration. Having graduated in 1992, Louise has been illustrating children’s books for various top publishers ever since and has recently started teaching adults and children. She explains: “Drawing trains the eye to observe, opens the mind and is a fun and therapeutic activity. There will be lots to inspire us in the vineyard this summer – in particular the detail and colour of the wild flowers, vine leaves and English roses will make fantastic subjects for pencil drawing.”
    To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 10.
