This Week (or month…) at Saxelby Cheesemongers
December is bound to be a blast! There are so many cheesetastic events coming up, the calender runneth over… So, if you’re looking for a break from the pre-holiday mayhem, good cheese and good food are always a welcome respite.
Pickle and Cheese Night:
Rick’s Picks and Saxelby Cheesemongers Lower East Side Feast!
Friday, December 7th
6:00 pm to 9:00 pm (ish)
195 Chrystie Street between Stanton and Rivington
Once upon a time there was a thing called ladies night. Now there’s pickle and cheese night. Thank goodness we’re doing the latter. Fermented folkies of the Lower East Side Saxelby Cheesemongers and Rick’s Picks invite you to a night of pickle and cheese pairings at Rick’s funky pickle outpost! Stop on by to share a bite of Phat Beets and Bayley Hazen Blue, drink a little glass of wine, and order holiday pickle and cheese packs for your friends and family.
New Amsterdam Public Wintermarket:
Sunday, December 16th
11:00 am to 4:00 pm
The Fulton New Market Building
South Street between Peck Slip and Beekman Street
Quite possibly the greatest thing we’ve done all year. Saxelby Cheesemongers will be selling cheese, butter, cream, and other fresh local dairy at Wintermarket, a one day market event to be held at the historic Fulton Street Fish Market. Wintermarket is the first in a series of events put on by New Amsterdam Public, a non-profit organization whose mission is to create New York’s first indoor public market dedicated to regional and sustainable food, sourced and sold by expert purveyors.
Farmers, foragers, bakers, and beekeepers from all over the Northeast will converge at the old Fulton Street Market to vend their wares and cook up some tasty vittles, all sourced from within a 500 mile radius of New York City. Chef Mario Batali will be making some ridiculously rich porchetta sandwiches; and chefs from the likes of Marlow and Sons, Centovini, Butter, and Applewood will be creating amazing dishes to help buffer the winter chill. As for us, we’re sticking to grilled cheese and pickle sandwiches… With company like that, we best stick to the basics!
Wintermarket is free to the public. A $5 donation is suggested to help New Amsterdam Public continue their efforts to bring a local and sustainable public market to New York City.
Saxelby Cheesemongers hopes to see you out on the town sometime soon!
