Fort Worth's Magnolia Cheese Co. Closes With Plans to Relaunch as a Market

It's transforming from a restaurant to a neighborhood market, but don't worry — there will be plenty of cheese to go around.

Goodbye cheese -- for now, at least.

Magnolia Cheese Co. has closed its doors — but fret not, cheese lovers, it'll be back. An announcement posted to the shop's Facebook page today brings news of the closure as well as Magnolia's plans for the future. It'll reopen in early 2015 as Magnolia Market & Cheese Company, and "will feature small lease spaces by local vendors, similar to a farmer’s market," hawking "locally grown produce, artisan bread and baked goods, fresh meat, honey, coffee and tea." Magnolia Cheese Company will serve as an anchor of sorts for the market, "offering cheeseboards as well as wine by the bottle and glass to enjoy amongst a few small tables."

The quaint little space opened in Fort Worth's Near Southside neighborhood near the end of 2012 selling cut-to-order artisan cheeses and a variety of menu items based around them — think chevre cheesecake, a gussied-up caprese salad, and mascarpone creme brulee.
