This Week in Starving Artists: Cheese

Posted May 26th, 2009

As I wrote in this space last week, the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival & Philly Fringe‘s office has a new home in Northern Liberties. One awesome new neighbor is Almanac Market, which stocks local produce, all-natural household goods and cleaners, and tasty sandwiches (my new colleague Mara just described their croissant with ham, brie, red onion, and figs as the best sandwich she’s ever had).

Almanac also maintains a smallish but very strong cheese counter. I especially recommend their mild and rich Lancaster County Raw Milk Cheddar – especially when it’s fresh from the farm, no other cheddar compares.

Tomorrow night (Wednesday, 5/27, for those of you who use calendars) at 7:00, Almanac hosts a tasting of cheeses produced by local farms and creameries. If you go, you’re likely to find some Live Arts & Fringe staffers looking for a good post-work graze.

Almanac is located at 900 N. 4th St., at the corner of 4th and Poplar. See you there!
