Scardello Artisan Cheese will officially open its doors in the Dallas Farmers Market’s The Market, on January 8, 2016. Cheesemonger Rich Rogers, alongside Cheese Enthusiast and Manager Austin Dupree, have secured a prime 400- square-foot, end-cap space inside the Market, a premier space for slinging cheese.
“We are thrilled about the official opening of our Dallas Farmers Market location. While we have always had a great mix of domestic and international cheeses at Oak Lawn, we are excited to focus more intensely on US and Texas producers at The Market. We look forward to working in a new and collaborative environment with some other great purveyors and producers,” said Rich Rogers, proprietor and cheesemonger at Scardello Artisan Cheese.

Our favorite cheesemonger just announced some exciting news, and it could possibly be your answer for that last minute gift for the holidays. Scardello has a new line up of classes for January. These classes sell out quickly, so you will want to act fast. A few of these are very limited.
