Domestic, imported, organic, hand made, rennetless, raw, goat, sheep, cow, or water buffalo we’ve got almost any cheese you could ever want. We love cheese to the point of obsession.

“Cheese Pride! Cheese Visibility!”
Though we are hidden in the back of the store behind a large green cooler we have a beautiful orange cheese wedge sign showing the way to our wonderful world of cheese.
Northern California produces some of the finest goat cheese in the USA and we carry most local brands. We also have all the other great local cheeses. To compliment our local offering, we’ve got great perfectly ripened cheese from all over the world, including new types of cheese every couple of weeks. We buy only what we need so that we’re constantly rotating stock and keeping it ripe. If you don’t know what it tastes like just ask for a sample. Ask us questions and learn all sorts of cheese trivia that might make you sorry you asked. Enjoy reading our descriptive hand written signs – if you can read the handwriting.
We carry the full product lines of many certified organic cheese makers including: Straus Creamery, Sierra Nevada Cheese Company, Springhill Cheese, Organic Valley and Cowgirl Creamery. We’ve got organic cheddar, jack, cream cheese, parmesan, Swiss, mozzarella and even an organic French Roquefort. Organic means no genetically-engineered hormones and no rBGH.
Join the Cheese Registry!
For those of our customers who fall in love with certain varieties of cheese but forget the names, you can now sign up on our Cheese Registry. Next time you’re in the store, just ask any cheese worker to put you on the list. That way, you’ll never let a favorite cheese slip out of your grasp.
