  1. To the east, and I suppose slightly south, you've got Gioia Cheese Co. 1605 Potrero Ave. South El Monte - great fresh mozzarrella and burrata, open only weekdays.

        1. Angelo & Franco make fresh mozzarella and Ciliegine, Ciliegine with Cream, Burricotta, Burrata and Ricotta. They also sell to many local restaurants and markets including Bay Cities in Santa Monica. You can buy directly from them at their factory in Hawthorne.
