Best Source for New England Cheeses

What's the best source for cheeses made in New England? I like Formaggio for many things but its cheese selection is heavily weighted toward Europe. Is there another shop in the Boston/Cambridge/Metrowest area that specializes in cheeses made in our neck of the woods?

  1. Maybe the Kickass Dairy Bar in Davis Square? Not exactly the same kind of experience as Formaggio, and definitely not as huge a selection, but they are committed to providing local products.

    They're at 378 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA 02144.

      I assume this is part of Kickass Cupcakes?

    2. There's a cheese shop in Roslindale Square, the name escapes me, but they had a nice selection as I recall. I got a wonderful Vermont cheese called "constant bliss" this past summer. Sorry, but my mind is blanking on details at the moment.

      1. I've found Whole Foods to be a decent source - I usually go to the River St. one in Cambridge.

        1. Wasik's Cheese Shop in Wellesley usually has an excellent selection...some of the most knowledgeable cheese merchants I've ever met.

          1. Not sure how much NE cheese they carry but you could call Wine & Cheese Cask in Somerville.
