We took a little day trip up to Pt. Townsend in pursuit of ingredients for our Thanksgiving. (Mainly, we went to secure the turkey. The rest of the goodies that found their way into the trunk of our car were really just a delicious benefit of being at a beautiful market.)
On our way home from the Pt. Townsend farmer’s market last weekend, we stopped at the Mt. Townsend Creamery. First of all and importantly, the cheese is wonderful. We’ve been devoted fans for a long time and eat it between times when the island-made Pt. Madison goat cheese is not available. We first discovered the Seastack cheese at Lark and luckily our local grocery store stocks it so we can keep in the habit. My favorite cheese is the Trailhead – a good all-purpose cheese that I often eat for lunch.
The guys at the Creamery were happy to give us the details about the process of cheesemaking and enthusiastically told us about their new storefront. Soon, you’ll be able to stop by and pick up a sack lunch: cheese, baguettes, topped off with some Theo chocolate. What could be better to throw in your pack for a mid-hike snack? Yum! You can definitely tell that a lot of love and care goes into their products. It’s inspiring to be with people who so genuinely care about what they do. We’ll definitely be back again and again. Here are some photos from the visit.
Mt. Townsend Creamery cheese can be found in many farmer’s markets. Their shop is located at 338 Sherman St. in Pt. Townsend, WA.
