Skip the Sonoma Cheese Factory on the Plaza ... for cheese that is. Quick drive east on Spain St, or a leisurely walk on the Bike Path. Tiny store in 100+ yr old bldg where they still make the cheese. Several different type of Jack cheese from creamy to sharp Free tastings upon request, and about half-price of the speciality shops. They ship.

Located just off the square, is Vella Cheese. The cheese is fresh, you can get samples, the prices are very reasonable. The ladies are friendly and accomodating. The pepato and toma are delicious.

We had no idea how involved making cheese is. The samples were fantastic. It was a "no pressure" tour. We love learning new things and it was a trip we will not forget.

Small but with charming staff and some very good quality cheeses.

Employees were too busy talking with each other to be bothered greeting us as we came in. Small place just a counter and two coolers of cheese. After 10 minutes of looking at cheeses in the cooler one of the workers asked if we wanted to buy something. We bought a small piece and left. Not worth it. Wouldn't go back.
