Where can I buy Cojito cheese in the burbs?

Hello - need (Mexican) Cojito cheese for a recipe. Can anyone tell me where to find it in the Philly burbs? Tried Whole Foods- no luck.

  1. I've found cotija cheese at the supermarket in Norristown not far from Michocana. Perhaps that might be a place to check.

      that's what i would think, too. there are a ton of mini-markets etc on west marshall street in norristown, makes for an interesting stroll. never particularly looked for cojita cheese (but now you've got me craving it) but i'm sure if it can be found anywhere it will be found there.

    2. In NJ, there are 2 Supremo Stop and Shop supermarkets that really cater to the hispanic shopper. They have a HUGE selection of cheese, including a few different brands of Cojito. Closest one to the city is on 130 in Pennsauken. It's about a 5 minute ride from the BF bridge. You can get about anything you need from produce to meat, to sauces to spices, when it comes to Mexican or any sort of Central or South American food. It's fairly large, BTW.

      1. I know the mexican grocery store in West Chester (next to Senora's restaurant & police station on Gay st.) has it and they often have it at the other mexican store 2 blocks up in a shopping center. Also, the Shoprite in West Chester usually has it.

          The cheese shop in Ardmore Farmer's market- Downtown Cheese- is the best. They may have it. Maybe Wegman's or Trader Joe;s too?

        2. Can usually find it at the Shop Rite on Germantown in W. Norriton.

          1. Did you check the Chestnut Hill Cheese Shop?
