Annual Summer Picnic Party at Marin French Cheese
Sunday August 21, 2016
Tickets 12.50 for adults and children under 12 are free!
Back by popular demand, this year’s casual summer afternoon event features live music by No Pardon, a rippin’ folk music trio from Eureka, Calif., plus 28 food & beverage vendors sampling and selling new items as well as their beloved classics. New this year are local food celebrities St. Benoit Creamery with their French-style yogurt and ice milks, chocolatiers Philip Marks and Farm Chocolates, Beaujolais Panforte, San Francisco’s new jam maker, Emma’s Jam, and a luscious crème brulee from French producer Rians. Hearty appetites will find delight with pork sliders from Devil’s Gulch Ranch and food truck menus from The Girl and The Fig’s ‘Fig Rig’ and Ultra Crepes.
Returning with samples and product to sell are vendors of charcuterie, honey, crackers, dips, spreads and olive oils like Jimtown Store, Fabrique Dèlices, Rustic Bakery, Sonoma Harvest and more–all of which accompany delectable artisan cheeses from Marin French, Laura Chenel’s, Nicasio Valley Cheese and a special pairing plate showcasing assorted cheeses from members of the California Artisan Cheese Guild. Proceeds from the sale of the cheese plate will support the nonprofit Guild and its educational programs.
Adults can sample beverages from Carneros Brewing Company, Cline Cellars, Silverado Vineyards and Sonoma Portworks (available for purchase in the Marin French retail shop), while Tea & Trumpets offers a variety of home-brewed fresh iced teas.
