One of our favorite ways to celebrate Thanksgiving is with a round up of some of New England’s best cheeses.

This year, our Cambridge store’s domestic cheese buyer Tripp, along with the rest of the cheese team, have brought together four of our favorite Vermont cheeses for a perfect addition to the holiday table!

The call time was 6 a.m., but our first guests — just as excited as we were — were standing outside our door at 5:40.
Gradually, the rest of our sleepy customers arrived, picked up their coffee and croissants, and by 6:30, all 32 of us were on the road, headed for high adventure in the Green Mountain State.
