The Wedge: Portland Celebrates Cheese Festival returns again to the Green Dragon & Buckman Botanical Brewery (928 SE 9th) this Saturday, October 6, 2012.
This farmer’s market-style event showcases artisan, specialty, and farmstead cheesemakers from throughout the Northwest.
Southeast 9th in front of the pub between Belmont and Yamhill will be blocked off to make room for over 30 cheesemakers, including Rogue Creamery (creators of one of my favorite cheeses, Rogue River Blue!), Tillamook Cheese, Portland Creamery, Willamette Valley Cheese Company, and more.
The cheese fest goes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Though the event is free and open to the public, the sponsors suggest a $5 entry contribution to benefit the the nonprofit Oregon Cheese Guild‘s efforts to support and promote the artisan cheesemaker community.
