Graze on Artisanal Cheeses in the Finger Lakes


4. Insider’s Tip

Lively Run's one-of-a-kind Cayuga Blue is sold for less at the source.  

Most Finger Lakes cheeses are nearly impossible to find in the city, so be sure to stock up while you’re at the source. Lively Run’s delicious Cayuga Blue, a rare blue cheese made with goat milk, sells for $20 a pound at the dairy [$15 per pound for larger quantities]. All dairies can arrange shipping, but you’ll have to pay extra, so bring a cooler to store your purchases if you’re driving.
