Campbell Cheese & Grocery
The lovely Campbell Cheese & Grocery occupies the corner of Lorimer and Powers Streets in Williamsburg.
Veggies from Brooklyn Grange
Most of the vegetables at Campbell's come from New York City's own Brooklyn Grange.
Elaine, Campbell's cheesemonger extraordinaire, likes to be creative in her cheese descriptions. Take this New York Rippleton, for example: it's "bouncy."
Many of the specialty products the sisters carry are from New York-based producers, such as the Hudson Valley-based Shady Acres.
Alana and Erin get their mozzarella from a family in the Bronx. Of all the local mozzarella they tried, it's their favorite. It's delivered twice a week—on Tuesdays and Fridays—and they keep it out most of the day as one should, before putting it in the fridge.
Among the expected fruits and vegetables you'll find some gems, like special herbs and mustard flowers.
For the Italians in the neighborhood, Campbell's carries a nice selection of Italian specialty goods, like L'Ultimo Forno pasta from Basilicata, Italy.
Alana and Erin stock an amazing selection of chocolates. They started tasting a few chocolates, and just went with it. They mostly carry domestic brands, like these Cocanu chocolates from Portland, OR.
Soft boiled eggs make the perfect snack.
Alana has a soft spot for home goods, so tucked amongst the cheese and produce you'll find cutting boards, spoons, cheese knives and other such carefully curated items. These handcrafted cutting boards come from Russellworks in North Carolina.
Campbell's carries pretty wire baskets for keeping eggs out on the counter, or for packaging gifts.
Stop by Campbell's for lunch and try a sandwich or salad from their rotating menu of options.
