Looking for fresh cheese in Montreal (curds or other)

Venusia | May 12, 2008 05:56 AM

Near my grandma's house in Sherbrooke, there is a little fromagerie that makes its own cheese curds, the kind of place where you show up at 1pm and they say, "We just ran out, we're making a fresh batch, come back in an hour", and when you do, they scoop your cheese curds out of a big vat, and the bag you get is warm and wet, and the cheese squeaks.

Is there any such place in Montreal? What about fresh mozzarella that has not yet been refrigerated?

I know it's possible to get daily made cheese curds in various stores, but the problem with those is they are delivered in refrigerated trucks, and even a little bit of refrigeration changes the texture. I'm willing to drive to the source to get warm fresh cheese. If there isn't any such place on the island, is there anywhere relatively close off the island?
