Sunset Magazine published it’s October issue featuring the lowdown on their choices for The West’s Best Local Food Shops, and our Artisan Market Manager & cheesemonger Emiliano Lee lands Farmshop a spot for his selection and care of artisan & farmstead cheeses with a strong Western-centric lean.

Pictured as their Cheesemongers: SoCal icon is one of Emi’s favorites, Txiki from Marcia Barinaga at Barinaga Ranch up in Tomales, CA. Reaching back to her Portuguese roots for inspiration, this raw sheep’s milk beauty has a lively bright play on the palate with notes of grass, hay, citrus, butter, and hazelnuts varying throughout the season. Pair with seasonal quince preserves from Jessica Koslow at SQIRL for a little taste of heaven.
