    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

    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

    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.

    Weekly dementia friendly swimming sessions are now available at Cotgrave Leisure Centre to help individuals and carers enjoy exercise in comfortable surroundings.

     

    From tomorrow (November 7), individuals, and families and friends who help sufferers can enjoy sessions every Wednesday from 1pm to 3pm.

     

    There is no need to book, just turn up and enjoy the session and to help launch the class, the first six weeks are free of charge for all attendees.

     

    The Dementia Swimming Project is part of Rushcliffe Borough Council’s and Lex Leisure’s wider health strategy with sessions designed to create a safe and friendly swimming environment.

     

    The classes are led by swimmers and carers with trained staff attending poolside to offer guidance and support to enjoy a gentle exercise and social session in the pool.

     

    Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Deputy Leader Cllr Debbie Mason explained just how many people could benefit from its introduction.

     

    She said: “Within Rushcliffe, approximately 1 per cent of our residents are living with dementia. As a Council we want to ensure they are supported with wellbeing opportunities wherever we can.

     

    “The benefits of swimming are well publicised both in terms of physical health and emotional wellbeing but it has also been shown to improve the quality of life of those living with dementia.

     

     

    There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with one in six over the age of 80 now having a form of the condition.

    There is also a monthly Dementia Support group at Dove Cottage Day Hospice.

    The King Edward 100 – named after the King Edward the Elder, who established the Saxon Manor house in Newark, in the 11th Century, later to become the site of Newark Castle is a classic choice of routes for another of Sportive HQ’s great value sportives. With fantastic HQ location less than 5 minutes from the A1 it’s easy to get to from many directions!

    Having some of the quietest roads we have ever seen, we wanted to share with you some fantastic riding along these lanes around North Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. A few hills early on in the ride followed by some long straight flats into some of the most scenic villages Ancaster, Folkingham and Heckington to name but a few. On the longer routes you don’t have to confirm your distance until after the feed station, so see how you feel on the day, no pressure.

    There will be free photos to download from Adie’s Photography, a top local cycling photographer.

    We hope that after you’ve tried the King Edward 100, you’ll be hooked on our value for money sportives where a great day out on the bike is all that matters.

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

    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.

    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.

    1324 Espresso – Tuesday, Friday & Sunday

    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.

    8 St Peter’s Hill, Grantham NG31 6QB, UK

    Live at Grantham Meres! Fri 26 April. Heather joined her first band Hot!House who released two albums in the late 80’s.

    As Part of M People, hits such as ‘Moving On Up’, ‘One Night In Heaven’ and ‘Search For The Hero’ and albums like Elegant Slumming, Bizarre Fruit and Fresco achieving massive worldwide success, Heather became one of the seminal British voices of the 1990s, with the band winning the Best British Dance Act Award at the Brits in 1994 and 1995, as well as the Mercury Music Prize for Elegant Slumming.

    Heather has since had great successes with two solo albums – the title track of her ‘Proud’ album has gone on to become the soundtrack to a whole host of very special events including London’s successful 2012 Olympic bid, the 60th anniversary of VE Day in Trafalgar Square, the launch of Queen Mary 2, the Tsunami Relief Concert, England’s victory at the Rugby World Cup celebrations, and the official ceremony marking the handover of the Olympic Games from Beijing to London.

    So what gives Heather the impetus to keep moving forward, to keep challenging herself, to keep trying new things and not resting on her laurels? ‘If you got the feeling I do when I sing’ she smiles, ‘you’d understand’.

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.
