21 Market Street, Stetchworth’s Dairy

History of 21 Market Street


(Stetchworth Dairy)

C R Alder, general manager


Campkin & Sons, camera dealers

A woman who lived in Cambridge in WWII had vivid memories of Stetchworth’s dairy shop in Market Street opposite the large old family firm of Eaden Lilley’s. The woman shoppers used to drool over the the bowl full of eggs at the back of the shop, and, in the window, they admired the large jug painted with roses and marked with the word ‘ crea.’ None of them had tasted cream for some years and were lucky if they had one egg a week.
