I don't know why but when I see people trying to boost themselves like this I always make a note not to use their services.

I get mine from this lovely gentleman and his good lady on a sunday and cant fault him what so ever. He is a fraction of the price of the supermarkets.

jrsussex don't you mean steak?

Nothing worse than having to explain a joke. Steak / stake, in the context of the humour both the same but then perhaps yours is also in jest.
No puns please, punsters should be hung, drawn and quoted.

Who is this guy who sells his meat at a boot fair? I hope he has a refrigerated boot.

MC, Hope he has thermal socks if that is the case! Hope your well, Best Peter

No I am not the butcher. I am just a customer who is impressed with the service the product and most of all the price.
The couple have a fully refrigerated trailer and the relevant hygiene certification to trade.
Maybe a few Lewes people should remove their heads out of theirs and Waitrose' Backsides and support the traders on a Sunday.
Sorry but I have not seen any stall yet that are selling free range paint or yoghurt knitted from hesian.

Pardon the cynicism but you do seem to know an awful lot about this butcher you are, of course, totally unconnected to. But I'm sure that if he is offering a butchery of such astonishing quality, he'll be able to rest upon his own (refrigerated) testimonials and won't need to rely upon ready-sliced spam from elsewhere.

I am simply wishing for these people to remain.
I have no connection at all. I do not know anything about them apart from what I and others have bought has been quality produce.
While we are on the subject there is a lot of very good reasonably priced stalls selling a wide range of goods.
This is not spam. It is just an appreciative thread.

Do they not sell Spam? I love a fritter for supper. Cheers, Peter

Spam is Off, apparently. Or at least according to "Meat Lover" who knows nothing about it. Unlike Butcher's Meat which appears to come in refrigerated containers operated by people who are nothing at all to do with him.

Pandemonia, You are really a very sad person !!

Thank you meat lover, I will try the butcher next time I am at the boot sale buying my eggs and veg which are also lovely and reasonably priced. Not to mention the bird food and other bargains that can all be found at our Local Sunday Boot sale.

What is it with certain people on this site. You give recomendation of a butcher to local residents through your own experience and straight away people have to jump to the conclusion that your trying to advertise your business. I have bought meat from this couple and im very happy with the quality and the price and thought that knowing how hard times are for some people they could get good quality meat at half the price. The other trader there is the gentleman who sells the veg, what a lovely man and great prices. Instead of critisising people who are genuine customers and sharing thier experiences, why dont you go find out for yourself on sunday, watch the stands and just see how busy they are, that will speak for itself.

Who are this couple? Do they have a trading name? Are they from a local farm? I am a purveyor of fine meats and like to try out new outlets. Is it really the boot fare we are talking about, not the Friday market or the monthly farmers market (seems more appropriate for a butcher)?
On 19 Oct 2010 at 10:13pm Happy customer wrote:
It's the sunday boot fare MC. Dont know much else except that he knows his stuff and gives loads of tips on how best to cook what ever you buy.

We had some sausages form them on sunday and can confirm they were very good - really fat and tasty. We like the veg man too and the ladies who sell pickles. much less poncy than the friday market and much cheaper.
Talking of markets - can anyone recommend a proper regular fruit and veg market locally that isn't a farmers market or charhing exhorbitant prices ?

I do find Sainsburys very good for value and local produce, always happy to take yo to have a look Brixton Belle and very happy to lead you up (and around) the aisles ha ha. Must dash, have meeting in the smoke today and lunch at Simpsoms, will need a hearty one in this weather I can tell you. Love, Peter x

I guess Sainsburys wasn't an attractive proposition BB? Just joking. What is the farm shop near Charleston like these days? When I lived in Alfriston I often went, very good Cornish Yarg cheese they sold, oh and the cider tasting was a bonus, spent hours tasting on a Saturday afternoon, very good cider it was too. Have a lovely weekend Brixtonbelle, hope the sun keeps shing on us. Hugs, Peter

YOU mean Middle farm ? I think it's overpriced and the selection of 'speciality' foods isn't that much better than Waitrose. The cider barn is great though if you've got a willing non drinking driver to get you home !

Morning Brixtonbells. I am willing to be your driver anytime my girl! Must be 20 years since I went to Middle Farm, sounds a bit hyped. Anyway my lovely B have a super day. Catch up later? Peter x

Peter, I'm starting to suspect you of desperation ! You haven't had a date lately have you ?

Tis true my girl, but may I add by choice, went on a spree of dating sites, great fun but alas nothing as good as a good brit girl, honest, straight to the point and tells me the truth, no holding back, mmmm sounds like a girl on here eh? Yes BB, you are a great catch. Have a relaxing weekend. Peter

I'm grateful for Nevillman starting this discussion and being so generous as to refer back to me. My delay in saying anything... more
