One of the best stores in the Italian Farmer's Market recently opened this cheese shop by Rittenhouse Square. There is probably no better selection of cheeses, olives or cured meats on this side of Broad Street. (This part of town isn't famous for its cheese shops.) It's not just Italian food. Stilton, Wembley, Etorka, Mahon, Gouda;everything you couldn't get in a Monty Python sketch. If you're curious about anything you see, they give samples to nibble. It gets very crowded on Saturday. Mail order and cheese-preservation tips are available through their web site.
