Bedford Cheese Shop first opened its doors in 2003 on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It was founded by Jason Scherr and Jason Jeffries with the intention of bringing good cheese to their neighborhood. In 2012, Bedford Cheese Shop opened a second shop in the Gramercy Park neighborhood in Manhattan, NY.
We now operate solely out of Gramercy Park. We continue to aspire to be the proverbial bridge between makers of cheese, charcuterie and specialty foods and our customers and community, near and far. We value the old world traditions of mongering. Every day, our cheesemongers impart not only their knowledge of cheese making, care and ripening, but also the unique stories behind the history, origins and nuances of the cheeses. The delicate balance of science, art and terroir. We hope to see you in the Shop soon!
