Are there any specialty goods stores in the Valley that sell artisanal cheeses? I am not talking about the (generally) mass-produced "gourmet" cheese you can get at AJ's or Whole Foods. Thanks for any help you can give!
I'm not sure how micro you want to go, but Wedge & Bottle in Ahwatukee and Cheuvront both carry some cheeses from smaller producers. If you're looking for something specific, however, it would be best to call ahead to check on availability.
Also, Hotdish, Inc. (https://www.facebook.com/hotdishinc) offers some cheeses mainly (exclusively?) from Colorado and Utah producers, but they don't have a retail shop where you can browse their selection.
