Saxelby Cheesemongers specializes in domestic American cheeses, especially those from the Northeast. The selection at the narrow little Essex Market stands changes frequently, but recent finds include the Moses Sleeper from Jasper Hill, a rich and creamy cow’s cheese, and the raw-milk, semihard Goat Tomme from Twig Farm. Keep an eye out for curds from Meadow Creek, a southern Virginia dairy that makes cheese from the milk of pasture-raised cattle.

Saxelby's is the perfect little cheese shop nestled in Essex Street Market, though you'll find her cheese in dishes and plates across the boroughs. 

All of her cheese are great and locally sourced, and this is the perfect stop before any picnic.
