    where are we?

    People ask us all the time where we are? As you may know, Main Street stretches from the Marina Jack end of downtown, all the way past the courthouse area. So we’re down on Lower Main, just across from Marina Jack at the very start of Main Street.

IMG_6271We’ve been looking for someone new to join our team as we gear up for the season. And lucky us, we think we found someone who is a perfect fit for what we’re trying to do down here on Main Street, every single day (except for Sunday)

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 2012. 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.


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.
