Best Cheese Shops in New England?

RSS button (From Our Questions and Answers Feature)

What are some of the best shops in New England for a cheese lover? I like a few places that are near where I live (including the terrific Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge) and I discovered a great place for cheese in Woodstock, VT, called Sugarbush Farm, but would like to know of some others. Any suggestions? Thanks! [Go here to post a reply.]

The selection of cheese is likely very similar, but you still might want to check out South End Formaggio (Formaggio Kitchen's sister store). It certainly wouldn't be a long trip for you, and even if you don't find anything, I'm sure it will still be an enjoyable new experience.

The only place near me that I'm aware of selling fine cheeses is Public House Provisions on Beacon St. in Brookline, MA.

I adore Formaggio's in Cambridge! I've missed it loads since I've moved. I really enjoy Whole Foods, the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and not skimpy with the samples.
