I don't know how long this has been open, but if I'd realized what a great selection of cheeses they have I would have been there sooner.

I had -- quite wrongly -- assumed they'd mostly be selling their cheese and those of other local producers. They do have a great selection of local cheeses, but they also have a very interesting selection of imported cheeses. They have some Neal's Yard cheeses and some cheeses labelled as being "Jean D'Alos" -- the French version of Neal's Yard, perhaps? I spotted at least one cheese that appeared to be Brie (or something similar) in a box labelled "lait cru" (raw milk). They have fresh cheeses (feta, cottage cheese, chevre and ricotta) available in bulk, an assortment of other dairy products (Straus milk and yogurt) and a smattering of other stuff (jams, honey, olives).

Still on a truffle kick after this weekend (are truffles addictive?) I bought some Sottecenere -- a truffled Italian cheese. Yum!

Then I went next door to Acme and bought some bread to go with my cheese and down the hall for some chocolates at both Scharffen Berger and Michael Recchuiti. Cheese, bread and chocolate -- really what more do I need?
