Cheese stall on Guildford market

Winchester has an excellent cheese stall on their Wednesday street food market. Even worth a trip to Winchester.

I was pleased to find there is now an excellent cheese stall on the Friday market in North Street in Guildford. The man very knowledgeable on his cheeses. I tasted a few and they were excellent.

I bought Lincolnshire Poacher.

To my surprise, the Lincolnshire Poacher was a blue cheese, at least had a blue vein running through it.

The cheese guy said this was quite common. Cheddar cheeses often have a blue vein and are written off as wastage, though can be found on sale locally.  For me, he knocked the price down for being defective.

I was baffled by this .

Instead of writing off as waste, why not sell at a premium as Blue Lincolnshire Poacher, in the same way have Blue Stilton?

He had a Blue Stilton, Colston Blue, far superior to average Stilton which has an unpleasant metallic bitter taste.

Located at the top of the market, next to or nearby an excellent fruit and vegetable stall.

Cheese stall and fruit and vegetable stall, two good reasons to visit Guildford on a Friday.

Tea later, sandwich of wholemeal bread, Lincolnshire Poacher cheese with tomato, followed by the unusual flapjack which I had only nibbled with my coffee at Turn Fit Deli.

    Have you tried Isle Of Wight blue? It’s a soft cheese, absolutely amazing. You can get it via mail order, also at Newlyns Farm shop in Hook.

    I would not wish to buy cheese via mail order or any food via mail order.

    I can buy quality cheeses off the cheese stalls in Guildford and Winchester.

    There are local cheeses on the Guildford farmers market, sadly relocated to a car park and has all but collapsed. And yet they are still being charged the pitch fees for High Street location.

  3. Peter Coulson Says:

    You can pick it up at Newlyns (they are not mail order), it’s generally available there. Worth a try, you might like it.

  4. keithpp Says:

    I have no idea what Newlyns is.

    If worth eating cheese stalls on in Winchester and Guildford may have.

    It may also be available on Guildford farmers market.

  5. Peter Coulson Says:

    Newlyns is a farm in Hook with their own farmshop. All their own meat there, excellent bacon, very little water comes out when cooking. Amazing sausages, make their own pate and so on. Really remarkable good quality produce, I hardly see anything like it anywhere else. You should take a look, I can’t recommend it enough.

  6. keithpp Says:

    If they are that good then on next visit recommend they have a stall on Guildford farmers market, Winchester street food market and Godalming street food market.

    I think they sell enough at the farm shop not to need to!
