Celebrate Cheese Month this October with our Meet the Farmer tastings at the Farmstand!

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.
