We are about to join a new Farmers Market!!

This Saturday, 10th October, we’ll be joining the fabulous traders at Portishead Farmers Market.

We thank North Somerset Farmers Markets for inviting us and we hope that Portishead will enjoy our range of cheeses.  Anticipating that this will now be a permanent fixture on our cycle of monthly farmers markets.

You’ll find the market in the Waitrose Piazza running from 9am until 12.30pm.

Looking forward to meeting new customers there.

The Cheese Shed started in 2006 and we quickly became aware of the Somerset Cheese Company. Their wonderful Fosseway Fleece ewes’ milk cheese became a staple of ours and has been ever since: we often recommend it and our customers are never disappointed! Over time we’ve got to know their other cheeses and now stock most of them. In every case the cheeses are distinctive and really high quality.

Pennard Vale deserves its awards, the buffalo milk cheeses are quite simply unique and even their cheddar, Six Spires, manages to stick out from the crowd. At The Cheese Shed we aim to support the best of small-scale Westcountry artisan cheese making, where quality and character come first: Anita & Phil’s dairy is the perfect example of the sort of thing we’re looking for.”
