Appleton Farms Cheese Shop at Boston Public Market

Appleton Farms Cheese Shop

The Appleton Farms Cheese Shop at Boston Public Market is a boutique cheese and specialty product retail outlet and premier location for Massachusetts dairy and cheese. The shop showcases products from over 20 independently-owned cheesemakers and dairy farms from across the Commonwealth. Cheeses are accompanied by seasonal items from the region including locally-made jams, charcuterie, pickles and crackers.

Most notably, the Appleton Farms Cheese Shop carries dairy products from Appleton Farms, one of the oldest continuously operating farms in the country, maintained in perpetuity by The Trustees. Appleton Farms jersey cows graze out on pasture and are milked each morning and afternoon – their milk is used to make the highest-quality, non-GMO bottled milk, yogurt, and cheeses available. The Appleton Farms Cheese Shop sells a selection of Appleton products, including:

  • Whole Milk
  • 1% Milk
  • Full-fat Cream
  • Pinnacle Cheese – like a Swiss cheese, grassy, buttery
  • Sunset Hill Cheese – buttery, smooth, creamy
  • Goodhue Cheese – like a cheddar cheese, sharp, firm
  • Pickles
  • Tomato puree

  • Cricket Creek
  • Ruggles Hill
  • Great Hill
  • Mozzarella House
