    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

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

    Fair Game Foods – Tuesday

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

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.
