Description

In its debut in 2018, Canada’s only Artisan Cheese Night Market was a sell-out success—and a huge hit with cheese lovers.

BREAKING NEWS! Buy a ticket to the Artisan Cheese Night Market and receive free fresh cheese curds when you arrive at the show on Thursday, while quantities last! These are no ordinary cheese curds. They are Black Pepper Curds made the gouda way by the Adam van Bergeijk family at Mountainoak Cheese near New Hamburg, Ontario. You’ll receive a 225-gram package of Black Pepper Curds, enough for lunch for two—or half the fixins for a tasty poutine. This promotional offer applies only to paid-ticket-holders and cannot be combined with any other offer.
