Bi-Rite’s Cheese Department


We are passionate about cheese produced in small batches using old-world methods; our personal relationships with cheesemakers, affineurs and importers allow us to sell cheeses not available in most other stores. Ask us for a taste of any cheese you see!

Led by Jon and a band of talented cheesemongers, our cheese department features a carefully-selected array of cheeses from California and beyond. Most of our cheeses are either organic, from small farmhouse cheesemakers, or from producers that focus on sustainability (and sometimes all three).

Some of the cheesemakers & affineurs we work with:

Andante Dairy

Cowgirl Creamery

Neal’s Yard Dairy

Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company

Rogue Creamery
