Every fall, Metropolitan Market rolls out the red carpet to your best cheese experience ever. How many ways can you Seize the Cheese?

Parrano's Great Bike Giveaway!
Eating cheese is a great way to live, and the only thing that would make it better is a bike to ride to the store to pick up your next wedge! Well, how 'bout a Dutch bike? Parrano is giving away one fabulous bike at each store.

End of Summer Basket Bliss
WAIT! Summer's not over yet, and there's still time to picnic your heart out. We want to help, so we're giving away a basket of artisan cheeses, cheese tools, cheese accoutrements, and more!
