ACS Raleigh — Day One

Raleigh City Center Wednesday Farmers Market

On Wednesday we were greeted by a City Center Farmers Market at the base of the convention hotels this morning. It happens downtown every Wednesday from 10am to 2pm, but today it’s been enhanced with five local cheese makers (normally there are only two cheese makers) joining the other vendors, an ACS tasting tent offering local cheese and local beer pairings, a grilled cheese competition between local chefs, and a live band.

Cheesemakers at the market:

Chapel Hill Creamery
Hillsborough Cheese Co.
Goat Lady Dairy
Calico Farmstead
Holly Grove Farms

Others are off on tours of local cheese makers, farms, and food markets around The Triangle; or taking one of the “Deep Dive” workshops, such as “Food Safety and Artisan Cheesemaking”
