Quark in Vancouver

Farmhouse Cheeses is the place in Vancouver that makes Quark, but it’s a particularly salty version.

We recently had a twitter thread on both where to get quark and how to make it.

From Lauren, how to make quark with a Yogurt Maker:

And Mat found this:

Luckily, Gourmet Warehouse has mesophilic culture.

Let’s see who makes it first!

Hi, I just came across this forum while looking for stores in Metro Vancouver that have Quark. I already tried the Farmhouse Cheese Quark and as you mentioned it is unfortunately very salty.

I hadn’t had the chance yet to try it, but I emailed Smits Cheese in Chilliwack and they said their Quark is unsalted. I’ve ordered a few tubs that I will pick up at the Granville Island Market today, thought that info might be helpful for some of you.

Awesome, thanks for the report. We did end up finding out that Farmhouse does make an unsalted version you can special order.

Let us know how the Smits version tastes!
