French Cheese from Provence

Locally produced cheese tends to be goats cheese

featured in Local produce Updated

The vast majority of cheeses that are made in Provence are goats cheese. Most of the goats graze in the north of the region in the foothills of the Alps, and produce a wide range of fresh & mild goats cheese, plus stronger editions that have been aged.

You can pick up a round of cheese at any of the local markets, where you can taste before you buy. The cheese is generally served with honey or soft local fruits like figs and apricots.

But being that this is France you can get pretty much any type of cheese you desire in any local shop or supermarket! But for the real thing, the local markets are where you will find the rare, unusual, locally produced and smelliest of all cheeses.....yum yum!
