Our knowledgeable Cheese Specialists will be your personal "tour guide" to the many cheeses we offer, providing samples, offering pairing suggestions and helping prepare beautiful cheese trays for entertaining. We love supporting locally owned and operated farms and bringing their fresh products to our markets.

Our Selection

Our cheese selection is second to none! Whether you are looking for that hard-to-find artisanal cheese from Europe or in the mood to explore some of Minnesota's own award-winning cheeses, we've got you covered. Signs in our Specialty Cheese Department offer valuable information about a cheese's origin, production, milk type, flavor profile, and the wine or beer ideally suited to its maximum enjoyment.


We strive not only to offer our customers a wide selection of cheeses but also to make sure the product we offer is exciting! We believe that a visit to our Specialty Cheese case should be fun. Come by and see what new and exciting things your local cheesemonger has to offer.

Signature Parmesan

Signature Product Focus


Our Signature Parmesan, Caseificio di Cavola 993, is made with raw cow’s milk on 12 small farms in Romana, Italy, and has a fruity, tropical, nutty flavor. 


Kowalski’s Signature Fresh Mozzarella is hand-stretched by our staff. This milky, delicate cheese is fantastic on its own with a pinch of salt or when used as an ingredient in your favorite salad, pasta or pizza!
