Plan ahead so that you arrive at Marin French Cheese when you're hungry because they have the fixings for a wonderful picnic, and they even provide the natural setting and tables to boot. Nice selection. I miss that they don't do tours of the cheese making / aging areas, but that's progress. Make a memorable tasty stop, and you'll enjoy!... More

They had a cute deli and a variety of products to be bought: cheese (brie), jelly/marmalade/curd, crackers, wine. They have several picnic tables on their grounds that encircle their pond. Unfortunately, they only thing you get to sample is the brie and it was only 4 or 5 types. It is tucked away out in the country so when I... More

Fresh cheese, cold cuts and sandwiches. Grab that baguette some cheese and a salami (Salume in California) and hit the coast for a day of sun and sand.

This is such a nice stop going to the coast or coming back into Petaluma. The grounds are very nice for lunch or just wine and cheese. Not only can you buy cheese but also food and drinks. The bottom line it's all about French Brie of all types. Check out the daily specials of cheeses, always some great buys.

The shop is divided into three primary rooms. The main room is dominated by the cheese coolers along the back wall. The remainder of this room has numerous gourmet items along the sides and front. There is a small wine shop to the left. And on the right side is a café, offering sandwiches and flatbreads, which of course feature... More

The best fresh French Brie cheese I have tasted! A beautiful location on huge rolling mountains with a pond and picnic tables to share a lunch! Free samples inside and lots to buy for cheap! A great side trip if two allows.

My grand daughters and I went there to sit around the pond, but we went inside first and I bought sandwiches and a cute gift for their parents. The staff was super helpful, the sandwiches were great and the girls took off around the pond over a little bridge to the northwest side and always stayed in eyesight. It was... More

The Marin French Cheese Company is out in the rolling hills of Marin County. Be forewarned that the directions you might find online are not correct. The folks at the end of our directions were used to this so they told us how to find the place. If you're up for cycling hills, it would be a lovely bike ride... More
