WORTH THE DETOUR
Artisan Cheese Company offers hand-cut to order artisanal and farmstead cheeses from across the region, the country and Europe. We stock other lovelies such as interesting oils, salts, honeys, jams and chutneys, to share with guests, or for just you, or to have on hand in your larder. We’ll advise you as needed, or leave you alone to browse. Don’t know cheese, don’t be afraid! We’ll guide you to the perfect stinker, or the gooiest bloomy bit of magic.
The shop opened in downtown Main Street, Sarasota, in March of 2011. And in the middle of year two, we are happy to report that we are going strong. We have added amazing pantry items to our shelves, many of which will be available for sale online here at this website. And we’ve expanded our cheese inventory to showcase a strong focus on seasonal American farmhouse and Artisanal cheeses. We’ve added to our monger team, and we’re introducing ourselves to new customers every day. We love what we do.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?
What made us open a shop in a highly seasonal town? And a cheese shop at that? Well we believe in Sarasota, and wanted to create a place, a shop, where people could feel a connection to. Our focus is on small production goods, whether it be the cheese, or the pantry items we stock. And honestly, we were just plain sick of not knowing where our food came from and what all those ingredients were for. So we try to bring in items that have as few ingredients used as possible.
We know there are people like us out there.
PANTRY GOODS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ONLINE!!
We are busily working in the background on this new e commerce website where you can order our products online and we will ship them right to you. We have added most, if not all, of our pantry items, and we are adding more daily!
If you’re local, come on by. We’re getting new cheeses all the time.
