I finally got to visit Farmstead, a relatively new cheeseshop here in Providence- it is awesome! I just thought I would let my fellow, Providence and vicinity 'hounds know about it.
A very small shop, but wonderful selection of artisenal cheeses, oils, pates, olives, meats..etc. For those of you who don't like the trek to Federal Hill, Farmstead is worth a detour.
They have also started introducing prepared foods, according to their owner- recently. I tried a slice of "Blackberry Marscarpone Coffee Cake"...WOW.
For the summer months they have opened another shop in Little Compton, at Sakonnet Vineyards. I have yet to visit this spot, but hear it is beautiful. My sister also said she saw them at a Farmer's market in Newport.
Anyways, I hope they are here to stay- a new Providence gem!
