This is a store that, if you can't travel to Europe, makes it unnecessary to do so, at least as far as cheese goes, because nearly all the great varieties--British, French, Italian, Dutch, Swiss, Spanish, and others--are all here, most by the best makers in...More

Come for the cheeses and find other delights as well. The cheeses are flown in from France and elsewhere and many are unpasteurized. You can sample many of the offerings before buying. They also sell wonderful breads. This is a great place to pick up...More

Staff is extremely knowledgeable, the selection is divine, it's a bit expensive but not made for everyday shopping.

This is THE best cheese shop I have found in NE. After living in France, it's been so disappointing to not find REAL cheese.... until I discovered Formaggio Kitchen! We look forward to our trips to Cambridge just to visit this boutique!

This is a gourmet market with tons of pastries, rare cheeses, veggies and flowers. I like their coffee cake loaf, but at $15 a pop I can't afford it often. The orange chocolate one is my fave.

This is the only place to go if you are a real cheese lover. You can sample before buying, no pre-wrapped chunks sitting forever. It is the finest selection of cheeses I've seen outside of NY. There is a bakery section as well as produce...More

Description
Nestled amidst beautiful Huron Village, Formaggio Kitchen travels the world to find small producers who communicate their traditions and terroir through their products. Best known for our amazing cheese selection, we also offer a variety of other artisan foods as well as domestic products from New England and beyond. Our beer selection is small, but carefully selected and our wine offering has a distinct slant toward old-world styles and organic or sustainable production methods.
