Spread the love of cheese at the Oakmont Farmers Market, and pick up some cheese spreads from Taste Artisanal Market. The Oakmont Farmers Market runs Wednesdays from 2 to 5:30 p.m. Name: Arieta Kadrioski Lisa Ferraro Klinge is the owner and creator of Taste
Location: The products are produced in West Chester at the Artisan Exchange
Year in Business: About three years What is Taste: Taste
is a line of cheese spreads and there is a line of infused honey too.
Lisa originally had a cheese shop in Delaware (which has since
closed) and the spreads were doing so well that she decided to focus on
them. She started doing wholesale and will soon open online, as well.
Some of the recipes are her grandmother's recipes, like the marinated
asiago. She just has a love for food and a love for feeding people. You
can use the spreads and honey in so many different ways, you can snack
on them or cook with them too.
What's in Season: Seasonal
pestos and the tapenades are coming this fall. The honey comes from
local farmers and we infuse it and it can be paired with cheeses. But
you can use honey anyway really, my favorite way is over ice cream.
Most Popular Item: Our
claim to fame is the Marinated Asiago spread. It's a spread that you
can put on bread, crackers or put it in pasta, salads or omelets. It's
cheese but it's oil based, so anything that you would use with cheese
and oil, you can throw it in.
Best Part of Farmers Market: Getting to
socialize with the customers and interacting with them face-to-face. We
can get their feedback. They will tell you if they love something or how
to tweak things. It's their reactions that are great. They will come
back and tell us about new recipes they've used so it's always really
fun. The customers always make the farmers market.
