There’s DTLA Cheese at downtown’s Grand Central Market, Milkfarm in Eagle Rock and Wheel House Cheese in Culver City, all of which have opened in the last several months.

The latest generation of cheesemongers is bringing cheeses both classic and hard-to-find to neighborhoods that previously might have been gourmet-cheese sparse. Among them are Leah Park Fierro, a pastry chef and veteran of the Cheese Store of Silverlake, who opened Milkfarm on a bustling stretch of Eagle Rock’s Colorado Boulevard, and Alex Josef, who opened Wheel House in Culver City and sports a tattoo of a cow on his arm.

“Cheese is just cool,” Clarke said. “It’s never boring. It’s always ‘Oh, my God, cheese!’


The charming black-and-white shop that Leah Park Fierro opened this spring carries a large selection of seasonal cheeses, along with charcuterie; paper-wrapped, string-tied sandwiches; and local food products. A recent selection of cheeses includes the English Stinking Bishop (rind washed in perry, a pear hard cider), fresh burrata, Four Fat Fowl triple crème from St. Stephens in New York, even squeaky Beehive Cheese Co. cheese curds.
