The Cheese Counter inside Rockridge Market Hall has been open for 30 years, thanks to you. Now that's The Big Cheese!
Help us celebrate 30 years of cheese appreciation
Our favorite artisan producers through the decades will be present with cheese in hand. Say hello and laugh about cheese (and truffle) memories with our longtime staff members, Cheese Program & Retail Director, Juliana Uruburu (pictured right), and Cheese Buyer, Alma Avalos (pictured left). And a token of our thanks to you, our customers, we'll offer a bevy of samples and other cheesy delights.
