Celebrate American Cheese Month with Alon’s

Did you know that American Cheese Society declared October American Cheese Month? It’s a true celebration of North America’s delicious and diverse cheeses and the farmers, cheesemakers, retailers, cheesemongers and chefs who bring them to your table. Throughout the month of October, Alon’s Bakery & Market will celebrate by highlighting featured cheese selections and the farms and creameries they’re brought to us from – all thoughtfully selected by our certified cheesemonger Mary Ingersoll.

Week #1: Enjoy cheese selections from Green Dirt Farm – a quaint Missouri sheep farm producing some incredible options and a new addition to our cheese case.

Week #2: We’re staying local with cheeses from Sweet Grass Dairy. Hailing from close by in Thomasville, Ga., these folks really know how to craft some delicious picks.

Week #3: We’ll feature products from The Cellars at Jasper Hill – explore a wide variety of Vermont cheeses, which have aged exclusively within these cellars.

Week #4: Another new addition to our market, we’ll end the month with Boxcarr Creamery – these North Carolina cheesemakers bring an assortment of cow and mixed milk cheeses to Alon’s.

We take pride in our cheese program, boasting more than 120 types of cheeses, and our commitment to supporting artisan cheesemakers. Join us as we recognize the quality and diversity of American cheeses!

Can’t get enough cheese? Don’t miss our Meet the Connoisseur event on October 4.

Savannah Bee Company will sweeten your day

Mary Ingersoll, head cheesemonger at Alon’s Bakery & Market, recently had the opportunity to visit the bee garden at Savannah Bee Company, a producer of the artisan honey selection available at Alon’s. Visiting with Ted Dennard, founder and head beekeeper, Mary immersed herself in the philosophy behind the company, and caught a glimpse inside how bees live and work, experiencing firsthand the passion Savannah Bee Company has and shares with the community. The observation hive on-site is the same model the company uses for its Bee Cause Project, an organization with a goal to install observation hives in schools across the United States. The hives bring education to younger generations allowing an inside view of how bees operate and interact, and the importance they bring to the world.

If you can’t make a trip over to Savannah, several selections of the unique honey are available right here in our market, including:

Acacia Honey – From the highlands of Hungry, this honey is light with a hint of vanilla.

Wildflower Honey – A treat that originates from the mountains of Georgia and eastern Tennessee. A combination of Gallberry, white holly, sawtooth palmetto and tulip poplar makes this honey rich and delicious.

Lavender Honey – Coming to us from southern Spain, this delicate honey has a slight floral aroma with a hint of fruity flavor. It’s a perfect substitute for sugar when baking.

Orange Blossom Honey – This delight comes to us from Florida and South Georgia. A perfect addition to a bowl of fruit, this aromatic honey is fruity and floral.

Tupelo Honey – A rare honey from the southeastern swamps, which are home to the White Tupelo trees. It’s the gold standard of honey with a rich golden, buttery, mellow sweetness.

Also look for Savannah Bee honeycomb and honey straws at both Morningside and Dunwoody markets. We hope to see you soon!
