Lafayette Village to add cheese shop

Posted July 1, 2014

Chapel Hill Creamery Calavander cheese.

— A new shop specializing in the sale of a product described in the novel “Ulysses” as “the corpse of milk” will soon be opening in North Raleigh’s Lafayette Village. Permits were issued last week for the $11,000 fit-out of the 580-square-foot space that is to become Six Forks Cheese.

Impressively, the store’s founders have raised more than $6,316 in donations through online fund-raising site Kickstarter. In return for helping to finance the store, donors received gifts ranging from subscriptions to a cheese-of-the-month club to having their name etched on a “Founders Plaque.”
