Our story...

The St. Joe Cheese Lady Story
Deb Sailor
The Cheese Lady - St. Joe

Welcome to The Cheese Lady St Joe! We are located at The Market, 301 Main St, in beautiful downtown St Joseph, Michigan. The Market is a 9,000 square foot indoor market that has been a labor of love involving my whole family and we are thrilled to welcome you. We share a roof with Community Tap St Joe, Infusco Coffee, The Tea Annex and Spice Merchant, Dad’s Farm & Cafe, Wild Ginger Florist and Gifts, The Wine Shoppe…… It’s a food lovers paradise and The Cheese Lady is the perfect anchor for this beautiful space.

My husband and I stumbled into The Cheese Lady in Traverse City while enjoying an autumn weekend with friends wine tasting. We were semi-retired after selling 2 fast food restaurants, and I was firmly-very firmly-opposed to ever owning or operating another food related business. After 15 minutes in Tina’s store, I was sold. I loved everything about the place, and after contacting Kathleen & John, I was all in! Their commitment to the finest cheese, outstanding customer service, and a fundamental appreciation for being good community members makes The Cheese Lady a dream to be a part of. I am humbled and honored to have been welcomed into The Cheese Lady Sisterhood.

The Cheese Lady offers over 120 varieties of cheese, charcuterie, crackers, jams, and a wide selection of specialty food items to enjoy with your cheese. We provide a sample of any cheese before you buy, so you know you’re going to love it before you bring it home. We also offer specialty cheese merchandise, gift baskets, custom cheese boards, corporate gifts, catering for 4 to 100+ people, classes and-my favorite-collaborations with local breweries, wineries, restaurants and shops for pairings and special events.
