Let's keep each other safe. A message about COVID-19.

image18

We care about our health.

We have rigorous practices and guidelines within our team for hand  washing, glove use, and shop sanitation. We've doubled down on these  practices to ensure surfaces throughout the  shop are sanitized throughout the day with a bleach and water solution,  including our iPad and credit card reader. Guests are welcome and encouraged to use our hand sanitizer and/or our public restroom to wash their hands. 

We are social distancing inside the cheese shop.

These are crazy times. We love helping guests, and we've been humbled by the incredible support of our community. We have a high risk household and we're serving many guests on a daily basis. Because of this, we need your help to stay as safe as possible to help protect us (and you) from respiratory illness. 


We  kindly ask that only one person, per party, enter the store at a time to help us maintain social distancing. To this end, we are limiting the  number of guests allowed in our store to five. Additionally, we serve one guest at the cheese case at a time. 


Saturday morning  can be BUSY. If you are in a rush, call us with your order on Friday, or shop mid-week. Masks are required inside the store. 


Our hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 10-4; Sunday 11-4. 

You are welcome to phone-in or e-mail your order.

Our staffing is very limited and we are experiencing high volume. Kindly, we ask for two hours notice on advance orders. We are happy to take your order days ahead.  A list of our commonly carried cheeses can be found on the Cheese Counter page of our website. Additional shop staples such as fruit, vegetables, and grains can be found on the Grocery Essentials page.  

  • Review what's in stock
  • Call us at 443.282.0220 or e-mail us at info@chesterrivergourmet.com with questions or to place your order
  • We'll call you back for payment once we've cut and weighted your cheese
  • You may park out back or out front of the store, and we'll load your purchase into your car with our loving (and gloved) hands. 

THANK YOU!!!

This is an exceptional situation. We are fortunate that our store is open during the crisis. Your business means the world to us. Our sister store, Welcome Home, has been closed since March 16. Your business helps us keep both stores running. For that, we are exceptionally grateful. 


Your neighbors and fellow foodies,
