Indulge Local: Marin French Cheese

Petite-Breakfast-NewLogo“From our Marin French Cheese family to yours, we extend our heartiest congratulations for your 30 years of success. We’re honored to be a part of your business and applaud the goodwill you’ve built in the community, all while staying true to your roots!” – Marin French Cheese

For nearly 150 years Marin French Cheese has been operating in Marin County.

Founder Jefferson Thompson started making deliciously fresh artisan cheese using milk from his dairy cows in West Marin and shipped it to the hungry dockworkers in San Francisco. He soon became renown for his European style cheeses—soft-ripened Brie, Camembert and a simple treat called Breakfast Cheese. Today, they continue to craft cheese in small batches using traditional cultures coaxing the distinctly coastal California character and flavor into every cheese.

Working with Marin French to provide you the very best local artisan cheeses has been simply wonderful. We are so lucky to have such an amazing cheese producer local!
