Where's the best place to buy scamorza cheese in Brooklyn? I'm looking for "fresh" scamorza, not smoked scamorza.

  1. Try Caputo's on Court Street. Finest cheese producer in Brooklyn.

      Second the Caputo's rec - I haven't tried their scamorza yet,although I was looking at it lovingly the other day, but their mozz is great.

    2. Same neighborhood: the cheese store on Union Street across BQE--I'm blanking on the name, but it's the only one there, across the street from Ferdinando's Foccacceria, same side (I think same block) as House of Calzone.

      I'm assuming by "fresh" you mean "not smoked," as I believe scarmorza is by definition an aged cheese.

        You are talking about Latticini Barese, unfortunately closed last year. D. Colluccio offers a good scamorza - dont know who makes it though. The italian deli run by the Royal Crown/Paneantico people, on 3rd Ave in the 90s has excellent italian cheeses - you might want to check them out also.

          Caputos on Court and 3rd.

            Horrors! I guess it's been a while since I'd been there.
