Little Italy Mercato Selection - May 8th


This is a great chance to discover one of our very favorite domestic artisan producers! We’ll feature all 3 of Sally Jackson’s fine varieties, each encased in a beautiful leaf-wrap. Most of her cheeses are sold to restaurants near her Eastern Washington farm. Learn more about Sally Jackson Cheeses at

We’re fortunate to have grabbed up a wheel of each of her fine cheeses but they won’t last long so be sure to visit the TasteCheese booth early or you’ll miss out on these featured cheeses:




FRESH BURRATA We have another fresh batch of incredible burrata on order. We ran out by 11am last Saturday so don’t miss out!

PIERRE ROBERT Serving up a Mom’s Day brunch? Make it extra-special with this lush, delectable and guaranteed to be Mom-approved French triple crème!

BUCHERON Tangy French goat cheese with a bloomy rind. Great with a drizzle of your favorite honey.

PARMIGIANO REGGIANO If you’ve never had freshly split Parmigiano Reggiano, then you haven’t lived. Be sure top by for a taste on Saturday!

PIAVE VECCHIO Hard cow’s milk cheese from Italy’s Veneto region. A great cheese for a spring picnic!

SILVER MOUNTAIN CHEDDAR We’re excited to introduce this excellent American cheddar from Bravo Farms in Traver, CA. It won gold at the ’08 ACS contest.

BALARINA 5-year aged goat Gouda from Holland. The earthy and caramel flavors pair well with big, jammy red wines.

BEEMSTER XO A customer favorite, this Dutch cow’s milk Gouda is amazing with great butterscotch flavors and nice crystallization.

BARELY BUZZED Another American original, this one from Utah’s Beehive Cheese Co. This award-winning flavored cheddar is rubbed with lavender infused coffee giving it an rich, almost chocolate-like flavor.

CASHEL BLUE From Ireland’s County Tipperary, this fruity blue is one of our all-time favorites.
