Memphis Farmers markets hungry for artisanal varieties

Tim Tenner and Cindy Austin chat with Jim Tanner, who co-owns Bonnie Blue Farm with his wife, Gayle, at the Memphis Farmers Market.

Lori Greene, one of the founders of the Cooper-Young Farmers Market, is passionate about cheese. When the market started a few years ago, she really wanted a local cheesemaker to be a vendor.

“There’s a real desert around Memphis for cheesemakers,” Greene says. “It’s not a real easy thing to get into. There are a lot of regulations and costly equipment, which can require a big investment up front.”

 

In addition, Greene explains that most dairies stay busy enough just caring for their herd. “It can tie you down,” she says.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
