Welcome to Farmstead

The first Farmstead Cheeses and Wines opened in 2003 in the Alameda Marketplace.

Since that time, we've become a destination for Bay Area foodies and have been named Best Cheese Store and Best Wine Store by several East Bay publications.

We opened our second shop in Montclair Village in 2008.

Relax,  It's Just Food is more than just our motto - it's how we approach the often intimidating process of selecting great cheeses and wines with and for our customers.

We dislike food and wine snobs as much as you do, but that won't stop us from finding under the radar and hard-to-find wines and perfectly presented handcrafted and artisan cheeses.
