Altrincham Market

Brand new for summer 2024 we're joining the brilliant food businesses at Altrincham Market. Based on Central Way, just below the indoor market, our satellite stall stocks a variety of our best selling award winning cheeses and dairy products, as well some unique offerings just for Altrincham.

Pop by to taste some of our customer favourites and discover something new, choose from our selection of Farm or Artisan produced Cheeses, Crackers & Chutneys, or chat to us about our tasting events, cheesemaking days, or Celebration Cheese for a special event in your life.

In addition, you can also order online from the full product range in our main shop, and have it ready for convenient collection at Alty Market on Friday or Saturday, perfect for your weekend cheeseboard!

From Friday 14th June, the stall will be open Tuesday & Friday 8.00am - 3.00pm and Saturday 8.00am - 4.00pm and you'll find us at 1 Central Way next door to our baker friends Lovingly Artisan!

    Chris Hallam - Manager

    Raised in Lincolnshire, Chris has always had a passion for food, particularly Cheese - its connection to place, who makes it, and why it came about. He has lived in Manchester since 1999 and following a spell in London where his depth of knowledge and passion for cheese increased whilst working at Neal’s Yard Dairy, he returned North. Whilst working with Mrs Kirkham’s Lancashire on the Manchester Christmas Markets and other events it became clear that opening a specialist shop was the obvious next stage of the journey.

  • Graham Kirkham - Cheesemaker

    Graham is the third-generation of Cheesemakers in his family, and son of the famous Mrs Kirkham. The last producer of traditionally made farmhouse raw-milk Lancashire cheese, Graham still makes cheese in the family farm’s Dairy with milk from their small Holstein Friesian herd. Known throughout the country and world, Mrs Kirkham’s Lancashire has received many awards and accolades, and was also one of Rick Steins ‘Food Heroes’.

  • Dan W

    Originally from rural Northamptonshire, Dan has a passion for all food, driven by products that are as simple and natural as possible. Working in the food industry from a young age, Dan is also a lifelong environmentalist, leading him to be drawn to the Slow Food Movement, and the practices of Small Farm and Artisan Cheese makers. He is the guiding hand on our environmental aims and practices, striving for low impact & high ethics. 

    • Holly

      Holly also joined the team in Autumn 2021, and has a keen insight into the food scene in Manchester and beyond, including what is happening in the world of cheese, and pairings of Cheese & Wines. Holly takes care of our delicate Sheep's and Goat's Cheeses, and can give you a rundown of the subtle current seasonal variations.

    • Amy

      Amy joined us in summer 2020, and since returning to her full time career in '21, still joins us regularly in the shop, and for special events. She lives locally and is also one of the Bee keepers with Old Trafford Amateur Gardeners Society, personal providing us with our local, seasonal and ethically produced Honey.
