Marin French Cheese was began to make cheese in 1865, started by a dairy farmer in West Marin who became well known for providing European-style cheeses to bustling San Francisco. Marin French Cheese is still making cheese over 150 years later – the longest continually operating cheese maker in the United States. The Bi-Rite Cheese Department is celebrating the beginning of spring by offering three favorite Marin French cheeses for $2 off! Perfectly portable, these petite cheeses make for fantastic park picnics, party eats, or on-the-go snacks.
- Petite Breakfast Cheese – Marin French’s original cheese from 1865. A little button of triple crème cow’s milk cheese that they refer to as a ‘fresh brie’. It’s mild & buttery and perfect for any time of the day.
- Petite Crème – A little round of brie that’s great for picnics or a cheese plate. It’s sweet and milky and pairs well with olives and charcuterie.
- Petite Camembert – The Bay Area version of a French classic. It’s Marin French’s most robust cheese and fabulous with oysters from neighboring Tomales Bay.
Whether you try one or try them all, celebrate local cheese this spring by enjoying a Marin French Petite for only $3.99!
