Farmer's Market in Memphis Asks For Artisan Cheese
The farmer's market in Memphis is desperate for regional, artisan cheeses. Read about Lori Greene's quest to keep the people happy and the Tanner's (Bonnie Blue Farm) quest for cheesemaking.
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."
