Once upon a cold winter’s day [January 6, 2014] we moved from Milwaukee to Denver and launched Cream City Market with one goal: to bring fresh, legendary Wisconsin cheese curds to the Rockies. Wisconsin natives by birth, but Colorado residents by choice we are stoked to be a part of the vibrant specialty food vibe of our new sunny state. We happened to have missed the snowiest, coldest 100-days-below-0 ° polar vortex that ever hit America’s Dairyland. #thatwasacloseone
Wisconsin cheese curds are legendary. We love that people who know curds give us a high five when they find out we’re here! It's also fun to see people taste this fresh delicacy for the very first time. Cream City Market brings people together over a little bite of something grand, and we hope that in a small way that makes the world a better place.
Our namesake is Cream City brick – brick used in Milwaukee during the mid and late 19th century which gave it the nickname “Cream City.” Many of the breweries, churches and historic buildings are made from them, places we've grown up in.
Put some squeak in your cheek!

We place an emphasis on impeccable freshness and old-world cheesemaking from Wisconsin's earliest European immigrants. Our cheese is made by two family owned dairies. Committed to supporting local Wisconsin dairy farmers, they use fresh milk from neighbors' farms to make award-winning cheeses. These farmers pride themselves in pasture feeding their cows along with feeding them a carefully balanced diet of natural grains.
Cheese making is a way of life in Wisconsin, the only place outside of Europe to offer a Master Cheesemaker program. The Wisconsin countryside is dotted with red barns and expansive nutrient-rich pastures left behind by retreating glaciers. You can taste the difference!
