National Cheese Month at CCFM

Fresh & Local

October is National Cheese Month. A whole month celebrating cheese? We are in! Join us this Tuesday and Thursday as CCFM staff cheese expert Patrick leads a cheese-making and appreciating demo. Learn how to make a delicious ricotta cheese (and maybe snag a sample!). This Saturday is also our monthly Marketeers activity. This month we will be doing a fun market scavenger hunt to celebrate Fall’s arrival. Mark your calendars for our yearly Halloween trick-or-treating extravaganza, Market Mash, on October 26 as well. Fall at CCFM is always a fun time!

Pick of the Week: Cheese!

High in calcium, protein and flavor, cheese is a winner in our book. Add some goat or cow farmhouse cheddar to apple slices for a quick appetizer or snack, or put a dollop of chevre or creole cream cheese into your morning grits…cheese can make any meal tastier and healthier. At CCFM, we have all sorts of cheese for you; cow and goat cheddar, aged asiago, creole cream cheese, plain and herbed chevre and more! Celebrate cheese month the best way possible-by eating it!

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

October brings Woody’s Fish Tacos to Green Plate Special! We know you love Woody and his fantastic tacos, so make your lunch plans at CCFM this month. Look for his selection of tasty fish, meat, or vegetarian tacos along with a selection of side items including rice and beans.
