At this thriving two-year-old shop in Fairfield, they don’t “say cheese.” They say Brillat-Savarin, Morbier, Marcel Petit Comté, Neal’s Yard Cheddar and Parmiagiana Reggiano. Partners Chris Palumbo and Laura Downey carry 100 cheeses from around the world, with a special concentration on American artisan varieties with names like Wabash Cannonball (Indiana), Ascutney Mountain (Vermont), Barely Buzzed (Utah) and Hooligan by our own Cato Farms in Colchester. And they’ve got everything you need to go with them: paté and charcuterie, spreads and chutneys, breads by Isabelle et Vincent. All that’s missing is a bottle of wine, right? Not a problem—the award-winning Harry’s Wine & Liquor Market is right next door.
