Go go go new cheese shop!
BAY CITY, MI — Any way you slice it, Mike and Cindy Parker know their cheese. And they\’ve got plenty of it at their new downtown Bay City business — Artigiano Artisan Cheese Shoppe.
Located at 815 N. Saginaw St., Artigiano opened at 10 a.m. today — Friday, Nov. 1 — next door to Mornin at Maggie’s Omelette Shoppe near the corner of Fifth and Saginaw streets.
Artigiano features more than 60 varieties of cheese, including Swiss, Gruyere, goat cheese, blue cheese, cheddar, Gouda and fresh mozzarella.
Mike Parker said the handmade cheeses offered at Artigiano range in price from about $11 to $48 a pound, which he said are similar to grocery store prices. He said most customers buy about a quarter-pound of a cheese at a time.
