Vendor Profile Winding Road Artisan Cheese

*** Vendor Profile***

Winding Road Artisan Cheese is a vendor that joined us exclusively at the French Quarter Grand Market. Every Sunday Ian drives in from outside of Smokey Lake where he lives and produces Winding Road Cheese, with a car loaded with Greek Style Yogurt, Butter Cheese, pyramids of Highland Hall, RDB and other tasty cheese.

Here’s a little history about Winding Road Artisan Cheese and Ian the creative force behind it all:

“Winding Road Artisan Cheese is an artisan cheese producer situated in the County of Smoky Lake, Alberta; about an hour from Alberta’s Capital City, Edmonton. We use only organic whole cow milk from Vital Green Farms, and a unique vegetable enzyme, derived from the Cardoon Thistle, to help create our cheeses. Our mission is to produce the best hand-crafted artisan cheese available anywhere, and we do this by producing small, high quality batches of cheese with as little automation as possible.”

“In March of 2016 [Ian’s] dreams of becoming a professional cheese maker came true with the incorporation of Winding Road Artisan Cheese Inc. He rose to the occasion and developed the cheeses that are part of the Winding Road Artisan Cheese line, and if you let him, he will talk to you at length about their process and meaning behind the names.”- Winding Road Cheese 

You can try Winding Road’s cheese for yourself by visiting Ian at the French Quarter Grand Market Sunday 11-3 at La Cite Francophone
