About Us

About us:

We are a Vermont family-owned specialty food store featuring over 1500 wines, 150+ cheeses, gourmet foods and Vermont made local products all at great prices.

Great Prices – $1.99 for a gallon of organic milk, what gives?

Yes, that’s no typo – we offer ridiculously low prices in comparison to other grocery stores.  These discounted products are one-time deals and we may never see them again.

Our one-time sale items are due to: 

  • A great deal we were lucky to find
  • Overstock of a product - we have tons of it
  • Packaging is not in "mint" condition - a dented can or ripped package
  • Product is close or past the expiration date.

Our one-time deals are 100% quality in spite of expiration dates.  Cheese Traders will never knowingly sell a product with questionable integrity.  If you are not satisfied, we will offer you a hassle-free return.  This is our promise to you.

Cheese Traders Team

We are most proud of our team – representing nearly ten nations from around the world, the Cheese Traders team is the heart of our store. We believe that the customer experience and the team experience are of equal importance, which reflects in our strong team spirit and excellent customer service. We look forward to welcoming you!
