Boasting succulent meat (or delectable vegetables) served with all of the trimmings and lashings of gravy, there are few things that beat a traditional Christmas Dinner. One of those things, however, is a Christmas Dinner sourced solely from local produce, meaning that you can enjoy a delicious festive feast whilst feeling good about supporting Chester’s producers. Find out which local businesses are offering Christmas food deliveries below:

S.J. Bebbington Butchers

Reared with care on a Cheshire family farm, choose S.J Bebbington Butchers for white and bronze turkeys, all cuts of beef, pork, and lamb imaginable, as well as traditional and innovative pies and wellingtons. The Chester butchers also offers fresh poultry and game from the local Grosvenor Estate. S.J. Bebbington Butchers sells more than just meat though, also offering a sumptuous array of side dishes ranging from fresh stuffing balls, cranberry sauce, and redcurrant jelly.

The Hollies

Not only does the Hollies sell high-quality, sustainably-sourced poultry, lamb, beef, game and pork, it also sells the elusive Kellybronze turkey – the ‘Best Turkey in Britain’ for 8 consecutive years. The Hollies does not scrimp on the trimmings either, boasting a tempting selection of homemade pigs in blankets, goose fat for delicious roast potatoes, market-fresh vegetables and even Port and Orange source for the turkey! Place your order by 15th December to be sure you do not miss out.

Ernest W Edge & Son

Offering quality produce to the residents of Handbridge and its surrounding areas, Ernest W Edge & Son offers an unparalleled selection of meat cuts, cooked meats, handmade cheeses and more, making it the perfect producer for your Christmas Fayre! Did we mention it was also North England’s Butcher’s Shop of the Year in 2015? Unfortunately Ernest W Edge & Son does not yet deliver its goods but, with a fully-functioning pre-ordering system in space, it is still easy to access their products.

Hoole Food Market

With delivery dates up to and including Christmas Eve, Hoole Food Market, with its iconic Produce and Veg Boxes, offers top-quality ingredients in time for Christmas. Why not order a Christmas Tree or Wreath from this merchant in the quirky Chester suburb of Hoole whilst you are at it?

ExSqueeze Me

Handbridge’s friendly greengrocer and juice bar ExSqueeze Me offers a glorious selection of fresh fruit and vegetables available for delivery as part of their ‘Veg Box’ offerings. Looking for a festive surprise? Why not order one of their ‘Surprise Boxes’ for a randomised assortment of produce? With all of these fantastic offerings, ExSqueeze Me seems to be the ideal trader for vegetarian and vegan Christmas Dinners, as well as for all of the trimmings.

Its not just the main event at Christmas though. See below a selection of Cheshire producers offering desserts perfect for the Christmas table.

Sweet Elements

Whilst the classic Christmas Pudding may not be on the menu here, the mouth-watering selection of modern patisserie delights is certain to go down a treat with your guests! All of the desserts on offer at Sweet Elements are made with high-quality, seasonal ingredients, meaning that, as well as looking spectacular, the taste is also exquisite!

Pastry Pedaleur

From freshly baked Black Forest Gateau, Butterscotch Brookies and Gooey Chocolate and Salted Caramel Swiss Meringue Buttercream cakes, there is sure to be something to tingle your tastebuds at Pastry Pedaleur. What’s more? Pastry Pedaleur also caters to those with dietary needs, offering both gluten-free and vegan alternatives!

And last but not least: cheese.

The Cheese Shop

With seemingly countless varieties and flavours of cheese including Montgomery Cheddar, Colston Basset Stilton, and Cenarth Brie, as well as pre-bundled packs, crafting the perfect cheeseboard is made easy thanks to The Chester Cheese Shop. With so many choices, it seems easy to spend the £25 needed to qualify for free local delivery too!
