Besley’s Cheddar Strawberries, Out Over Catering, Foxhollow Nurseries, Somerset Venison, and Little Mead Meats will all be back next week.
WHO'S AT THE MARKET THIS WEEK
DAIRY & EGGS
BATCH FARM CHEESEMAKERS
All of our farmhouse cheddar cheese is made using the milk from our own dairy herd, meaning the milk for our cheese travels minutes rather than days or hours before being turned into our award winning final products.
DEANE BARTON FREE RANGE EGGS
Our eggs are free-range to a high standard - the hens are kept in small numbers and rotated around grassy pens - and are stamped with their own producer-number.
LOADER’S SOMERSET CIDER
A father and son partnership passionate about real cider, cider vinegar and apple juice.
FISH & SEAFOOD
Jonas Fishmongers is a family business spanning across 5 generations. Today Steven and Martin are the owners and have grown up learning from their father, David Jonas. We can prepare your fish while you wait and take pre-orders via our Facebook page, dependent on availability. We also can offer fresh, frozen and shell fish to restaurants and pubs.
FRUIT & VEGETABLES
100% homegrown, seasonal veg from our Organic farm in Over Stowey. We are certified organic by the Soil Association, the UK's leading certifier and sister of the well known organic farming charity.
THE KIND KITCHEN
Here at The Kind Kitchen we bake Artisan Sourdough Bread. We also make a selection of vegetarian and vegan savouries and cakes. You can find us at the Minehead Farmers Market every Friday.
Where possible, we strive to use local and organic ingredients. All our flour is organic and the spelt flour that we use in our bread and pastries is grown in Somerset and milled at Dunster Water Mill.
Stefano creates seasonal Italian and European dishes using fresh locally grown and reared ingredients from the South West, and he also sources and imports quality Italian products.
MEAT & POULTRY
A traditional breed, our beef is produced exclusively from grass-fed, registered pedigree stock and is a trademarked product. All dry-aged (hung) for a minimum of 21 days, we sell a variety of cuts (steaks, joints, mince etc) subject to availability. All our meat is vacuum packed and fresh where possible but, as a small producer we do not have the numbers of stock to guarantee this. If at all possible we recommend advance ordering and we will do our best to provide the required size and cut: we sell out fast!
THE ORIGINAL EXMOOR HAM COMPANY
Set up to give discerning customers a really good selection of hams with the personal touch of having them sliced for you exactly as you wish. From choosing the right joint, and having been boned, we boil to correct temperature with herbs and spices and after cooling we smother the whole gammon with the chosen glaze, which might be marmalade, or even whortleberry jam. We then bake in a hot oven until the glaze caramelises and while cooling drip honey all over so that as the meat firms up it draws the honey in, making it sweet to taste and a tang of burnt orange from the marmalade.
