Humboldt Fog - where in Greater Boston?

General Chowhounding Topics has a great on-going thread entitled "Favorite Cheese?". Presently, it has 113 posts and rising. The clear winner, so far, seems to be Humboldt Fog.
I've never tasted, heard or seen it, he said with much chagrin. Can someone help a Hound out and direct me to a source(s), preferable in the Metro-West? TIA

  1. Whole Foods on Cambridge Street in Boston almost always stocks it. I suspect that other WFs in the area would too.

      Yes, that's where I've bought it too.

        Was at Whole Foods in Cambridge - River St today and they have it too.

      2. Yes, and of course, the Newton, Newtonville and Framingham branches will have it too, to be more metro-west centric...

          As does the Woburn Whole Foods. I also am *pretty* sure I've seen it at Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge, but it's been awhile since I've been there, so I could be wrong.

            I was there at lunchtime today, I asked, and they do not carry it. For the record, the Comte that I did buy there was wrapped in plastic - not that I'm complaining... :)

            1. re: okra

              They carry it, but are currently out of it. It's been featured at some of the cheese classes Robert does.

        2. whole foods, yup, and formaggio south end sometimes.

          1. Also look for their Midnight Moon and Mt. Mckinley cheeses if you can find them. Incredible! They do sell from their website, although you definitely get killed for the FedEx shipping - but that's the way I used to get it before it was available locally.

              Thanks for the additional recs :-)

            2. I bought a wedge of it last week at the new cheese shop in Roslindale Center.
