Markets :: My Favorite Cheese Shops


cheeseshops copy

I love cheese, and can never seem to get enough. The thoughts of being a vegan for health purposes have entered my mind. But I just cant give up something that I enjoy so damn much. Cheeses are one of my favorite indulgents, pungent blues, creamy cows milk, covered in ash or herbs, local or imported, you name it and I'm into it. Here is a list of some of my favorite Cheese Shops in New York City.

  1. I love that first photo of the cheese shop

  2. These photos are divine! Wish I had seen this list before we visited last year. I adore your photography.

  3. Thanks for this post, I'll definitely check these places out.

  4. I LOVE cheese, irrationally. Can't wait to get back out there and stuff my face. :)

  5. mmmmmm, Cheese.... I'm salivating already...

  6. I can't say I actually like eating cheese (I know, weird), but it always makes for such pretty photos. Great people shots as well.

  7. oh boy, maybe the hardest thing for my to quit when dieting or just want to eat *healthier* is with no doubt cheese (and bread...because, hello. who can eat cheese without bread?).

    great idea sharing your fav cheese shops in ny. maybe later we will see your fav bread shops?

  8. As a fairly new New Yorker {and longtime cheese lover} I'm completely smitten with this post! xo Lola

  9. Wow, affordable cheese are available in here and love it
