          1000 pounds the smallest order? What grocery store could sell that amount? This doesn't make sense.

          Also, aren't they able to at least tell you which stores sell their cheese?

            Single grocery stores, no, but those that have more than one location, yes.

              I know stop and shop sells calabro, not sure if they sell the specific one you're looking for.

            I meant contact them directly so they could tell you what retailers carry their products.

          Calabro Ricotta is sold at Whole Foods in Newton at the Beacon & Walnut location. I would call to be sure since its been a few months since I've bought it there.

            Never seen the Ricota Impasta, although they might have the regular containers, but McKinnon's was the only local store which ordered basket cheese from either Calabro or Supreme in RI for me out of season. I know they didn't order a whole case at the time because it was well past Easter but can't remember which supplier I asked for (overall I prefer calabro, but supreme's basket cheese is quite good). Sessa's nearby also carries some products from Calabro, but wouldn't do the special order for me.
