About Us

Established in 1994, our commitment is to bring you exceptional and unforgettable, artisanal food from across the UK and Europe, from producers who are passionate, dedicated and share our key values regarding sustainability, fantastic animal welfare and high quality produce. 

 

Our bricks and mortar shop is tucked away among the historic buildings of Cambridge and is full to the brim of outstanding local and European produce. We stock a phenomenal range of nearly 200 rotating, seasonal cheeses from hundreds of brilliant dairies and even travel to the Rungis market in Paris to hand select the very best produce each month. We also famously stock a range of over 50 spine tingling chilli sauces, have a beautiful, fresh olive counter, tempting range of cured meats and carry a wide selection of unparalleled olive oils, vinegars, pastas and shelf ingredients for all your culinary needs. Our skilled and devoted team know the story behind every cheese and product and are always ready to share their enthusiasm and knowledge with you in store (and now through our website) to guarantee a memorable, enjoyable and delicious shopping experience. 

 

Sustainability is also at the heart of how we operate. We buy from ethical and principled suppliers, reuse much of our packaging and work with our superb partners to deliver zero emissions local deliveries. We are also continuously reviewing and refining our business practices in these times of great change to ensure that our footsteps are lighter on this beautiful planet.

Our staff will be working outside of these hours to fulfil orders only.

We are reviewing these hours regularly as the country moves out of lockdown.  Hours will be updated here accordingly. On quiet days, we may close early as we are operating with a very small team. On hot days, where the temperature is predicted to be, or is, over 25 degrees, the shop will close at 2pm. Please call ahead if you plan to visit during the last hour of business.

We kindly that only one person per household enters the shop at a time if there are others waiting, to minimise waiting times. The store limit is four customers at a time. Children are unfortunately unable to enter the shop at the moment. This is subject to change at the discretion of the team.

Masks are compulsory for all, without exception. If you are unable to wear a mask, please shop via Click it Local or this website. Thank you.
