The Arts Centre Makete turns 38 this weekend and it was where we first started selling cheese back in 2000. Everything and nothing changes! We'll have Stockan's Orkney Oatcakes and Pembroke Patisserie gingerbread biscuits to go with our cheese tomorrow - 10am to 4pm - and the weather will be lovely. Pictures from the Arts Centre archive and the marvelous folks at Bleu Des Crepes who recently started getting cheese from us.

great pics!!!

Years ago when I was studying in Christchurch I would come and get cheese straws and have a cup of soup with them. They bring back many happy memories. Thanks

Will be along this morning. Did you have any aged Gouda please.

Would love to try the crunch of the Gouda and the creamy Goddess.

Could you save me 600gm approx I will pop into the store when next open please? Tom.

It's almost December, so now's the time to start thinking about the best cheeses for Christmas and New year. We have all the old faithfuls - Colston Bassett, Meyer Gouda, Wensleydale & Lancashire, lots of NZ goats, Windsor Blue, Evansdale Farmhouse, French cheeses, Blue Monkey, raw milk Keens and Mt Eliza Cheddar, sheep cheeses.....In fact everything you need for a great box of cheese. If you want to mail order or pre-order for collection, or simply want to know when we are open, check out the Xmas Information page on our website - www.cheesemongers.co.nz/christmas-2019-information/ ...

Back on the counter after ages - Kirkhams Lancashire - crumbly, buttery, tart, magnificent! Martin's favourite cheese and the reason why Eccles Cakes were invented. Also L'Etivaz from the Swiss Vaud. Small production using raw alpage milk, this cheese is two years old, super fragrant and spicy. Gruyere's more interesting cousin! Both in our van this weekend. Lovely picture of Ruth Kirkham from Matthew Fort and Paul Heathcote's book 'Rhubarb & Black Pudding' (1998). ... See MoreSee Less
