The food lovers guide to cheese in Atlanta

Find cheese bargains at Buford Highway Farmers Market

A block here and a wedge there can add up fast at the register, but you can find deep discounts in the cheese section of the Buford Highway Farmers Market. Fromage from trusted producers like Vermont Creamery, Jasper Hill, Sweet Grass Dairy, and Pierre Robert can cost half of what you’ll pay at shops intown. A word of caution: Turnover tends to be low, so check expiration dates. One tip-off is the cheese’s physical condition; if you spot mold spores on a cheddar or if your favorite double-cream looks unusually droopy, come back next week for a fresher batch.
