Cheese is processed from dairy and includes a variety of cheese products like string cheese, cheese blocks, and sliced cheese. The type of cheese offered at a local market depends on the region and types of animals that are around for cultivation. Most cheese at a market is offered fresh with little to no preservatives and chemical injections. This is natural, home-grown dairy that came directy from a healthy, well-taken care of animal, such as a dairy cow. That's one of the biggest benefits of supporting a local market, the animals involved are treated more humanly and are allowed to live in a more natural habitat.
