Cheese tasting at Raleigh Downtown Famers Market
Raleigh, North Carolina, is host to the American Cheese Society's National Conference this year, and its famers market is paying tribute. The Raleigh Downtown Farmers Market will hold a tasting of local cheeses on the first day of August to coincide with the first day of the American Cheese Society's conference. The tasting will feature over 50 types of cheese, all made within 80 miles of Raleigh.
