Canterton Stores and Post Office

  • Canterton Stores, Preston Candover

Canterton Stores has been an important part of village life in various forms for over 100 years.

Although we no longer have horse drawn carriages in the village the most recent owners of the store Rob and Jane Marks are aiming to bring it into the 21st century!

The shop whilst only small, stocks a wide range of items, and we aim where possible to source locally produced products to support the local community.

Alongside every day convenience store items we stock:

  • Local free range eggs
  • Locally produced honey
  • Freshly made quiches, pies and pasties from Hampshire Fare
  • Locally produced apple juice
  • Hampshire cheeses including award winning Tunworth and delicious Lyburn cheeses.
  • Smoked trout and smoked trout pate from the River Test
  • Off Licence with a range of locally produced ales and ciders
  • Gourmet frozen ready meals made with local organic produce and gluten free
