Cheese Curds in Wash/Balt

Found an old thread about the French-Canadian delicacy poutine, discontinued in 2007. Whereas poutine gravy mix can be purchased online (or in my case the last trip to Quebec), cheese curds are more difficult. Is there any farmstand/supermarket/specialty shop, preferably in Balto., that sells them? No luck at the farmers market (JFX) this morning. Thanks in advance.

  1. I bought some here once; I'm pretty sure it was at Trader Joe's.

    1. Trader Joe's carries them but they're not fresh enough to squeek.

        1. I bought cheddar cheese and horseradish white cheddar cheese curds at Wegman's in Hunt Valley last weekend. They probably have what you are looking for. FoiGras

              The cheese curds at the arlington farmer's market are indeed very good. Although I have never been able to get any cheese curds to squeak..

                I love the cheese curds from the man at Courthouse farmers' market. He usually has plain, herbed, and onion varieties. But no squeaking. The only squeaky cheese curds I've had were at the Tillamook Creamery in Oregon (we were at the factory and they were fresh off the production line).
