Welcome To Market Cheeses.
Your destination for “Quality West Country Products”.
I started Market Cheeses in 1996. Initially in a small shop in Hatherleigh Market, open only on market day (Tuesday), (hence the name) it was relinquished in 2009 but still remain’s as a cheese shop.
The present business in Holsworthy was set-up in 1997 and from the original cheese range it has developed so that now practically all its cheeses are sourced from independent producers in the West Country and are augmented with a range of Deli products, again from the West Country.
We are featured In the late Carol Trewin's ( Food Editor for the Western Morning News) "Devon Food Book" on pages 101/2, with a full page photograph and the acknowledgement that "Holsworthy has a fine cheese shop".
Also Steve Morey proprietor of Blagdon Manor Restaurant, Ashwater, Devon features us in his newly released book "From the Heart" (pages 88-89) See
Helped by my wife Judith the ethos of the business is to provide quality products, in a knowledgeable and friendly manner and to make each customer a friend.
We are helped in this by our suppliers and producers who have a similar approach.
No impersonal checkouts, no false offers, no grinding down suppliers prices, no demands for free promotional goods. Just excellent value, competitive prices, courteous service and longstanding relationships with our customers and suppliers.
We are also able to supply and offer discounts, for functions, weddings including cheese wedding “cakes”, and we cut and prepare if required. Cutting and presentation boards are available on loan and gift baskets to your wishes can be supplied.
Try us and enjoy the experience.
