March 28 – April 3 | 11:00am-1:00pm daily | All three stores

Get to know eight local cheeses available at Mississippi Market during Local Cheese Madness! Join us daily from Tuesday, March 28th through Monday, April 3rd to sample an amazing array of delicious soft, hard, and aged cheeses.

Two local cheeses will face off daily from 11:00am-1:00pm in our deli. Taste these cheese pairings in-store and vote for your favorites by placing one dry bulk bean in each cheese’s designated tally jar. Each day, a winner will be chosen based on votes received and will advance onto the next round. The three round, single elimination bracket will conclude with one local cheese superstar. Who will reign supreme and take home the local cheese glory?

The winning cheese will be placed on sale Tuesday, April 4th and will remain on sale while supplies last.

Keep up with the madness on our Market Musings blog or follow along on our social media pages @msmarketcoop with hashtag #localcheesemadness where we’ll be sharing daily match-ups featuring competing cheeses.
