UPDATE on the 5th September 2020:
THANK-YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT over the last few months, it's kept our small business going and many of our small artisan producers and farmers too.
We are in Warwick market square every Saturday in the vintage Merry Mouse Van. Customers will be asked to respect the social distancing rules and pay by contactless card where possible.
We are changing venue…. to Cheltenham on a Thursday
A pair of French bakers at the forefront of what is being called ‘the slow food revolution’ Ralph Saint Rose and Raoul Dyevre have invited us to join them for a mini market in Cheltenham on a Thursday morning.

Sadly it means we will not be able to serve our friends in Kenilworth on a Thursday, we hope they will pop over to see us in Warwick on a Saturday instead. We just don’t have the energy for crazy hours any more. After 15 years of 4am Thursday morning starts and a 45 mile trip each way it’s going to be a huge relief to change to a 7am start and 5 mile journey, especially in the vintage van. Also the success of Wednesday nights in Naunton makes it a big job to restock for an early start.For our customers who are unable to come to the market or send a helper, do make contact and Barney on his electric bike may be able to deliver... Granville style!!!
Our local Cotswold Village visits in the Merry Mouse Van will take place as usual and yes... we will bring lots of special EGGS and all the traditional deli items..plenty of VERY good properly made cheese, jams, butter, olives, pies, bacon, hand cut Honey Roast or Dry Cure HAM, Smoked Fish..etc.
For large orders it might be advisable to pre order at the beginning of the week.
This is our proposed timetable:
WEDNESDAY 5-7pm By The Black Horse NAUNTON
THURSDAY CHELTENHAM (PROBABLY 7.30am -12pm) then
THURSDAY (aprox 5 -7pm) WILLERSEY Village Green FRIDAY 9-11am WINCHCOMBE Castle Street then later in the car park at The Royal OAK GRETTON (5pm-7pm)
SATURDAY - WARWICK (probably 8am - 3pm)
Sunday 6th Sept DUMBLETON at the village club 9 -11.30am
EVERY FOURTH SUNDAY BOURTON ON THE WATER (farmers mkt)
OTHER SPECIAL EVENTS WHEN WE HAVE THE ENERGY!
When attending please be aware of the social distancing required. To assist our rigorous bio-security measures we STRONGLY encourage contactless payment. Many thanks for your support during this extraordinary time. Be safe.....and
remember 'FINE CHEESE IS A LUXURY WORTH QUEUING FOR'!!
Deliveries to our trade customers will continue as required.
Food and Farmers Markets across the country are taking place if they can manage the social distancing controls, by supporting them you will be helping farmers, small cheese makers and other wonderful local producers.
Our passion for cheese has become a big part of the business. We're always on the lookout for unusual, artisan cheese that we can bring to you at an affordable price.
The public face of the company is Myles Salmon, supported by wife Jo and a team of willing helpers.
Many thanks to the good people of Willersey for showing great enthusiasm for quality British produce. It would seem even the village ducks have a desire for fine food!!
We will be outside The Bell Inn on a Thursday aprox 5-7pm on a regular basis if the support continues.
New Product Alert…..
LIVE ORGANIC YOGHURT.... very good for you and your animals! See our cheese page for the latest update.
Slater Eyre Linconshire Plumbread.
Made using the original 1834 recipe in the Pocklingtons’s family bakery using flour from wheat grown on the Lincolnshire Wolds.
The secret of a good moist Plumbread lies in the quality of the fruit. The dried fruit is sourced directly from the grower in Turkey.
Not a plumb in sight, this fruit loaf flavoured with blend of spices including ginger & cinnamon. There are many ways to use it. We like to toast it under the grill and eat with chunks of hard cheese, on special occasions we use thin buttered slices as a base for gravlax or smoked salmon with a dash of dill sauce.
From the Black Mountain Smokery
Produced by the Carthew family in Crickhowell - Expensive but after extensive taste tests this proved to be the VERY BEST we could find.
Peppered Smoked Trout Fillets
Hot Smoked Salmon - Try with Dill Sauce.... so good... and healthy!
(our fish is not sold on market days at Kenilworth and Warwick)
Dan Salmons 8oz Aged Sirloin Steak.....
Proving to be a big hit, tender with great flavour. Dan is also producing some very good hand made burgers... beef or pork and apple. Its best to order them well in advance if your having a party.
Terrines and Pates from France.
Not local but we love them. They come in jars with a long shelf life.
Duck, Wild Boar,Trout & Almond, Salmon & Dill and a few others.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------We are thrilled to anounce to our loyal followers that
our PORK PIES, made by Daniel Salmon and Alison Maloney
have won the BIG PRIZE again - SUPREME CHAMPION hand raised pork pie. With GOLD awards for our Traditional Pasty & Steak Guinness & Cheddar Pie.
Its good to know they are still the best!!
We seem to be spending a lot of time on the telephone taking and placing orders (hence the Banksey phone box pic, sadly no longer there, due to the foolish ways of a few!), if you have time and are able please do feel free to email your requirements through on a Monday or Tuesday morning. Once in a while the family bowler hat comes out.... most recently for VE Day.... the Churchill look...
