Our Story

Delivering daily to kitchens & tables, since 1976

The Cheesman’s story began in the mid 70s, when Brian Cheesman, a true fruit & veg man, formed the business. He would travel to New Covent Garden to collect the best produce from around the UK and the continent, delivering it across the South East to a growing, loyal customer base. Brian’s wife and two brothers, over the years, set the foundations of a true family business.

That legacy has thrived ever more under current MD Martin, who now runs the business, alongside sister Claire and brother Matthew, having been involved for more than 30 years.

Our Recipe

  The freshest fruit, vegetables and variety of produce

  Unrivalled history with a hard-working, family-run team

  Responsive and flexible daily distribution to customers

  Large headquarters, with offices, yard and shop

The day starts very early at Cheesman’s. Our buyer leaves the Guildford HQ each night at around 10pm, arriving at Covent Garden Market in time to pick the freshest, newly arrived produce – just as our founder Brian did for many years.

It’s all back at Guildford by 4am where the produce is unloaded, sorted and reloaded to our fleet of delivery vans – ensuring quality and freshness for our customers, daily.

Responsiveness is key – customers across Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire can order any time up to 11:30 pm for next day delivery (voicemail orders only).

OFFICE AND SHOP OPENING HOURS:

Monday to Friday, 08:00 to 15:00,
Saturday, 07:00 to 12:00, Sunday, closed
