GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.- Pounds and pounds of cheese, nearly every kind, you name it, display cases full of 90 varieties in Grand Rapids at The Cheese Lady, 315 Fuller NE. Owner Heather Zinn admits she is not the original “cheese lady”. While working in Muskegon, she stopped into The Cheese Lady owned by Kathleen Fagan Riegler. She was inspired to start a store in Grand Rapids since the only other one was in Kalamazoo. In October of 2012, her wish came true.

It’s not all about cheese, but also about the perfect foods, wines and beer to accompany it like nuts, fruit, meats and olives, too. Every Saturday, stop into the Grand Rapids location to sample wine and cheese from around the world. Weekly hours are Tues. thru Friday, 10 a.m. to 6p.m. and 9a.m. to 4 p.m. on  Saturdays.
