This Week(end) at Saxelby Cheesemongers... LES Apple Day, The City Harvest Brooklyn Local, and first New Amsterdam Market of 2011
Nobody proclaimed it, but it seems that this weekend is the unofficial Saxelby Cheese-a-palooza of 2011. We're going to be all over town grilling sandwiches, slicing cheese, and performing other random feats of strength at some fantastic autumn events! Come on out and help us spread the curd...
And a special thanks to everyone who bought Vermont and New York cheeses at Saxelby Cheesemongers last week! Your purchases combined to help make a generous donation to the Red Cross for Hurricane Irene cleanup and rebuilding efforts. Our regional farms and neighbors thank you!
Support City Harvest and eat some delicious grub at the first ever Brooklyn Local! Over 75 local purveyors will set up shop in the historic Tobacco Warehouse for a day of noshing and special events. Tastings, book signings, and activities for kids are among the fun sessions planned for this fantastic event. Saxelby Cheesemongers will be there serving up mouthwatering cheese sandwiches, so stop by for lunch!
Did you know that the Lower East Side used to be home to an apple orchard owned by a Frenchman named Delancey? Well now you know! (Who said these emails couldn't be educational?!) This annual LES event features your favorite neighborhood shops and restaurants gathered on Orchard Street for a one-of-a-kind street food fest! Don't miss the apple pie eating contest, or our grilled cheese sandwiches with Shelburne Cheddar & Sweet Deliverance Apple Chili Chutney!
Old Fulton Fish Market (South Street at Peck Slip)
Saxelby Cheesemongers is back at the New Amsterdam Market! If you haven't been down to the market this year, get thee to Peck Slip this Sunday! New Amsterdam has never been better. From prepared foods like lobster and shrimp rolls to incredible breads, meat, and produce, you can stay for lunch and get your weekly groceries all in one go! We'll be at the market once a month from now till December, so stay tuned for future dates...
