Celebrate a shared love of cheese, featuring award-winning, farmstead, artisan and specialty cheeses from the Northwest and beyond! In this annual event, running now through Sept. 28 at all six neighborhood Metropolitan Market locations, guests get a chance to savor unique cheese pairings such as chocolate, sea salt, beer, Boat Street Pickles, salami and more. Part of the fun is the rare face-to-face interaction with cheese-makers, chefs, local artisans, cheese authors and experts. During the festivities, guests can also take advantage of an unlimited 20 percent discount on all wine priced at $19.99 and up!
At each Metropolitan Market location, there will be 15-20 cheese beyond the cheese makers sampling customers, including Metropolitan Market’s own famous fresh, hand-stretched Mozzarella demonstrations and tastings.

Taste American Cheese Society 2010 “best in show” cheeses
Metropolitan Market is the only retailer to feature all three Best of Show award winners from the 2010 American Cheese Society competition held just last month: Uplands Cheese Company’s sole cheese – Pleasant Ridge Reserve, made in the style of French Alps (Dodgeville, Wisc.); Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery (Websterville, VT), for its hand-ladled, ash-ripened goat’s milk cheese, Bonne Bouche; and Farms for City Kids Foundation (Reading, VT) – an educational organization with hands-on farming and cheese-making experiences for urban youth for its Spring Brook Farm Tarentaise, a raw milk, washed rind cheese inspired by traditional cheeses of the French Alps.
