Mercato's 12 Days of Christmas presents; Formaggi
Saturday 24th December (Christmas Eve)

Like Salumi, the regional cheese of Italy tell a story about the way many people were living until the beginning of last century. In some of the most remote places, particulary int he North, very little has changed: Shepherds still spend part of the year in mountains, tending a few cows, sheep or goats, with only scarce places to sleep and eat. Mountain communities have traditionally been poor in terms of money, but rich in tradition and values. Cheese was bartered for other foods, paid as rent to landlords, and of course cheese is what everyone ate.

On Saturday 24th December (Christmas Eve) we will have an amazing array of local and imported cheeses for tasting in the deli and throughout the store. come in from 11am onwards to sample some cheese you might not have had before that could spruce up your cheese platter this Christmas!
