Welcome to Fairfield Cheese Company
Authentic, hand-crafted cheese is a treat for the eyes, the taste buds, and of course…the belly. Prepare yourself for a selection of American artisanal and farmstead cheeses, charcuterie and fine foods that promise an unforgettable browsing, shopping, sampling and learning experience.
Owners Laura Downey and Chris Palumbo have more in common than just being long-time friends and community-minded residents of Fairfield, CT.
We share an obsessive passion for food. Calling us “foodies” doesn’t begin to describe our love and respect for good food, real food…food that comes from the heart as well as the hands.
Beyond mere “retailers”. We’re cheesemongers. We pride ourselves on supporting the American cheesemaker, as well as other artisan food producers nationwide and worldwide. We love forging relationships with small farms and other producers in order to bring you the finest cheese and specialty foods available.
Cocktail party? Fundraiser? Dinner party? Our artfully designed gourmet platters will make just the right impression. On all Fairfield Cheese Company platters, each cheese is labeled with country of origin, and includes bread or crackers and fresh fruit, dried fruit and nuts. Need a wine suggestion? You’re in luck – Harry’s is right next door, pairing is one of our specialties.

Our case is brimming with some of the most desirable American artisan and farmstead cheeses, as well as the tastiest versions of traditional European cheeses. We take great care in selecting small-batch, unique cheeses to fill our cases. Our cut-to-order cheese guarantees that your selections will make it home in the best possible condition.
Salted, cured or smoked, our selection of artisanal charcuterie is as thoughtfully selected and delicious as our cheeses and accompaniments. As you might expect, all of our meat is carefully sourced for its craftsmanship and outstanding flavor. Our American-made Salumi in particular does not disappoint. Following old-world traditions, the makers source their meat locally and create the Salumi by hand in small batches. In addition to our Salumi, we’re excited to also offer a variety of cut-to-order pâtés.
