Come 22 October, Prahran Market's free Say Cheese Festival will showcase a selection of Australia's best artisan cheeses in Melbourne's oldest marketplace.

Featuring cheeses and cheese-related products, dozens of delicatessens will participate in the festival, with recurring market faces joined by new talent.

Taste world-class cheesemonger Anthony Femia from Maker & Monger's khachapuri - a traditional Georgian dish of molten, smoked cheese baked in a bread bowl, or one of their incredible grilled-cheese sandwiches.

For a sweet treat, Sweet Greek will be serving saganaki, fried and drenched in honey, alongside Tad Lombardo's baked salted pretzel with dark chocolate and warm parmesan dips. There's even talk of a cheese gelato being scooped up.

Live music and performances will entertain throughout the day, as will cooking demonstrations and cheese tasting platters.
