October is American Cheese Month. Not American cheese, mind you, but cheese made in America. And Kathleen Cotter, cheesemonger and owner of The Bloomy Rind in East Nashville, has the perfect way to celebrate.
Cotter announced this week that the Southern Artisan Cheese Festival will return for a second year on Saturday, Oct. 6, and those who attended last year can expect some updates to the event.
The celebration at the Nashville Farmers’ Market will bring cheesemakers to Nashville from six states. The event will take place from 3:30-7 p.m. this year in the Flea Market building offering space for attendees to sample and learn as cheesemakers showcase their wares.
Cheesemakers will serve samples and sell larger quantities of the more than 100 handcrafted cheeses
