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 art and science. We hope to see you in the Shop soon!
We founded Bedford Cheese Shop with the mission of purveying our hand selected cheeses, meats, specialty items and house-made foods to our community near and far. Further, we endeavor to share our passion and knowledge of these foods in a way that creates a fun, memorable and educational experience for our customers. All the while, we work shoulder to shoulder with our colleagues in an environment where we value hard work, respect, integrity and laughter!
