What we do. A purveyor of hand-crafted cheeses, charcuterie, and specialty foods. We specialize in food pairings for all occasions, fine pantry items for cooking, and local and organic products for the conscious consumer. We have a kitchen with sandwiches, soups, and fine coffee. We offer classes and articles for our customers to learn more about cheese, pairings, and cooking.
The Cheese Traveler offers a broad selection of artisan cheeses of all styles made from cow, goat, and sheep milk, and a wide array of jellies, jams, dried fruits, and savory accompaniments to create a balanced cheese plate. All cheeses can be tasted before purchase, are cut to order, and priced by the pound by expert cheesemongers.
Not just cheese. The store has a broad selection of fine cured meats from the U.S. and Europe, cured olives, pickles, specialty pastas, crackers, biscuits, as well as world-renowned, fine estate-produced chocolates and candies.
Featuring Tilldale Farm organic meats. The store exclusively carries local, organic, pasture-raised, heritage-breed beef and pork. Completely hormone-free and anti-biotic-free.
