Meadowset Farms table (winter)When most people think of sourcing local foods at a small town market like ours, few would imagine that some of the fare might merit kudos from award-winning critic Craig Leban.  Yet right here at the Kennett Square Farmers Market we feature several of Leban’s heralded cheese makers, including Amazing Acres and Meadowset Farms.  Read LeBan’s
Philadelphia Inquirer review of Meadowset Farms’ artisan cheeses and then stop by their table at Winter Market to sample and purchase some for yourself.
