Fromagerie or Monoprix for cheese?

scorpsjl | Jul 19, 2010 07:50 AM

I'm trying to convince my roommate (we're both living together in Paris for the summer), that it's better to go to a fromagerie (preferably a top quality one), than to the monoprix to get cheese. He argues that many of these cheeses are only made by one or a few places any way, and that these particular cheeses will therefore be the same at the monoprix as at a cheese store (for sure, the monoprix has an impressive amount of cheese for a supermarket, says the american!)

Still, it feels like the cheese store must be better... but why? I'd love to hear as many arguments as possible. Especially because our french is not that great, we might not be able to talk to a shopkeeper (though we probably could)--- but are there any other reasons to favor the cheese store? And any reasons not to go to the monoprix?
