Hi All,
Just discovered we're down to the last jar of Marmite!!
Anyone of you good people know where I might obtain a jar
of this most British comestible?Within a reasonable distance of Leiria
-Coimbra region.......(A good bit of Cheddar wouldn't go amiss either!).:D


Many Thanks

We are South but Continente here has marmite - the only thing is it is hidden amongst the cake mixes and cooking ingredients - not where you would expect. Hope you find some!

Continente also has cheddar down here - a few choices of the usual prepacked Cathedral City and Seriously Strong (the latter, although mass produced actually won an award a couple of years back!) It's very expensive though!

Or you could hop onto the A8 from Leiria to our store in Tornada. It will take you about 30 minutes from Leiria. Marmite and Cheddar, Branston, brown sauce, teabags, all available at very reasonable prices. Unionjacs British Foods

I think I have posted a reply on your "Rain" thread. This is a new site to me, although I am an old hand in the Algarve. Marmite is now everywhere in the Algarve. Apolonia in Almancil and all the Thomas Greens.

Check out my log burning inset fire suggestion .... for your damp blues. Mrs. Sooty

Not far away, I have just bought the last large pack of mature cheddar until the next delivery!!!! But there are several different ones in the fridge....

The English shop in TORNADA, just north of Caldas da rainha.... AND cheddar cheese.
