What We Do
Cheesemongers of Santa Fe features a cut-to-order service counter with a thoughtful selection of over 150 domestic and international cheeses, as well as cut-to-order cured meats, antipasti, and a tailored selection of accompanying grocery products. We specialize in smaller-scale and farmstead produced goods, and work closely with our many local and regional producers, from cheesemakers and bakers, to the producers of delicious mustards, chutney, honey and pickles.
In the shop, customers have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a monger to sample and learn about products, pairings, and even cooking tips.
We offer a robust catering tray service – an attractive, delectable, and uncomplicated (though, certainly not plain) option for entertaining.
Additionally, we host a series of regular cheese classes, tastings, and culinary demonstrations – working with local breweries, wineries, distilleries and chefs.
The most significant aspect of our work as cheesemongers is to connect our consumers on a daily basis with the producers of authentic, wholesome, and flavorful foods – foods skillfully crafted with the utmost regard for the preservation of thousands of years of traditional practices, together with the welfare of the land and animals on which all our communities depend.
We strive to build a thriving marketplace for cheese and other real foods that enrich the lives of farmers, craftspeople, consumers, working people, and the community alike.
Every interaction is a pungent opportunity to share our love of cheese, and help re-establish real, traditionally made cheese as a treasured and exciting part of our collective culinary and cultural fabric, and as a reality in our present food landscape – something that can be ordinary in our lives, yet extraordinary to eat.
