Did you know that October is Cheese Month? We’re celebrating by partnering with the Chester County Cheese Artisans, makers of some of our favorite farmstead cheeses, for a series of Meet The Farmer sampling events this month! You’ll have a chance to talk cheese, cows, and feed with the farmers and try their delicious goods – many of these farmers don’t do markets in Philly, so you’re in for a rare experience. And we’ll be featuring samples of their cheeses all week before the tasting at our cheese counter, plus perfect pairings with select produce, honey, jams, and pickles.
Meet the Farmer Schedule:
Fri, Oct. 11: Doe Run Farm
Featuring St. Malachi (past. cow’s milk, aged Fontina-style)
Sat Oct. 19: Shellbark Hollow Farm
Featuring Sharp Chevre (past. goat’s milk)
Sat Oct 26: Yellow Springs Farm
Featuring Yellow Brick Road (cave-aged raw goat’s milk washed in Victory Brewing Co.’s Golden Monkey)
NEXT: Thursday, October 17 | 3-5pm
Visit us every third Thursday of the month for a delicious pairing between the Farmstand and Philly Beer Scene!

The Brewer’s Plate is Fair Food’s marquee fundraising event. Participants include the area’s most celebrated restaurants and breweries – all independently owned and located within 150 miles of the city. The Brewer’s Plate sells out EVERY year! Over seventy businesses contributed to last year’s Brewer’s Plate with over 1,000 people in attendance. With continued support from locally owned and community-minded people this event will continue to grow every year.
