Murray’s Cheese Shop has been a part of Greenwich Village for over seven decades. First opening in the 1940s, this old-school fromagerie is the go-to spot in the city to find delicious cheeses. Murray’s Cheese Shop imports the finest meats and cheeses from all over the world, while their state-of-the-art cheese caves age and ripen cheese onsite.
This neighborhood shop maintains it’s old-school feel with its selection of goods and friendly service. Clad in bright red uniforms, the knowledgeable cheesemongers eagerly help you find just the cheese that you are looking for.
Murray’s offers a variety of cheese-centric classes hosted in their in-store classroom. The front of the shop has a take-out section, featuring the ever-popular Murray’s Melts and other prepared foods. The back of the shop has a small grocery area with an impressive dairy selection. Offering fresh cream and milk from local dairies, Murray’s also has quite a range of artisanal butters for sale. Vermont Creamery cultured butter, Beurre d’Isigny Sainte Mere and Lurpak are among them.
For a delightful, sit-down experience, visit Murray’s Cheese Bar just down the street at 264 Bleecker Street.

The other afternoon, I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with one of my favorite local chefs, Luke Venner. I got a chance to hang out behind the scenes, whip up some bomb butter and chat all things Churncraft.
A few weeks ago, a jury of 39 design experts from around the world met in Germany to judge more than 5’500 product innovations from 54 countries. After careful evaluation, the jury paid tribute to Churncraft’s design with the coveted Red Dot distinction. The Churncraft butter churn will be exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, along with the other winners.
