cheese options near Union Sq.

The selection of good foodstuffs in the Union Square
area keeps increasing. In addition to the great fish
at Catch 21 and the Farmers Market, the great breads
at the FM, O Padeiro and many other sources, I would
like to particularly recommend a visit to the cheese
counter in the new food hall at ABC Carpet and Home if
you are in the area. They have knowledgeable sales
staff, many good and interesting cheeses in good
condition, and good prices. Many other items look
worth a try there as well, and at least at one point a
retail outlet for D'Artagnan products was promised.
Also, I would highly recommend the sheep's milk
cheeses sold on Fridays at the FM. All are very good,
but the flat brie-like square in particular is
absolutely luscious! Campagna at Home (21st between
Bway and Park) is another recently-opened source for
high-end artisanal breads, as well as cheeses, take-
out fare and other food-related items.
