Quark Cheese

Chaz Sep 30, 2000 10:52 PM

My wife and I live in Manchester, NH. She is German, and would love to be able to purchase Quark Cheese.
Does anyone know where this product can be purchased locally (i.e. the Boston Area?).

Thanks Alot

    The Vermont Butter and Cheese Company makes quark. It is sold in Connecticut at Whole Foods Markets which should also be in the Boston area. Also, the company has a web page which might have more info on where else to find the product.

      Whole Foods Markets in the Boston area go under the Bread and Circus name.

        The Vermont Butter and Cheese Company's URL is below. The site includes a list of outlets by state. In Manchester: A.Market Natural Foods, 125 Loring St., 603-668-8445.

        In the Boston area, Formaggio Kitchen and Cheese Cave, 244 Huron Ave., Cambridge, 617-354-4750, is a good bet.

        Good luck.

        Can't help you locally, but if all else fails, you can order from a tiny organic dairy in Calif., Straus Family Creamery. Link below.

          Also, Cowgirl Creamery in Pt. Reyes Station makes a nonfat quark that's very tasty.

            Yes, Cowgirl and Straus are partners in quark production.
