South End Formaggio

After years of setting the standard for fine imported foods in the Boston area, Ihsan and Valerie opened South End Formaggio in Boston’s historic South End in January 2000. The shop is smaller than our Cambridge store, but it has many of the wonderful products packed together into a welcoming neighborhood shop.

Together with our buyers at Formaggio Kitchen, we seek out the artisan products from all over the world. Our cheese and meat selection offers the fruits of these labors with many domestic cheeses from small producers from New England and further afield.

Throughout our little store we pack in fine produce (local and organic when possible), chocolates, wine, beer and various other dry goods. We make the best of what space we have on our 'wine wall' to present an ecclectic selection of wines that we feel reflect the true nature of the grape, region and traditions that go into making the wine. As a result, many of our wines are either organic or biodynamic (see our write up in the Education section).

The kitchen also makes a variety of sandwiches to go as well as daily prepared dinners. Check out our website for more information on our store.
