The Market Butcher
Mike Brown used to run the Poultry & Provisions stall but since Edwards & Emmess retired earlier this year (2020) he has expanded his range and now become The Market Butcher. Offering the same quality meats, poultry, provisions and now a deli. His eggs are still jumbo, the smile is the same, as is the quality of service and produce on offer. And ‘Butcher Mike’ as he is known is still part of the team along with Mike’s Mum Lesley helping out too.
Mike has been working at the market since he was 16 during school holidays and at weekends. After leaving university the lure of the market drew him back and he joined full time and brought the business in 2013.
