Deli Department

Something exciting is happening in our Deli departments. We're featuring “Our Cheese Merchants' Reserve” cheese. Our Certified Cheese Merchants are busy applying this craft they have studied, resulting in the finest cheeses you'll find anywhere. Looking for bolder flavor with less sodium, try World Classics Trading Company deli meats like fresh All Natural Turkey, Honey Mesquite BBQ Chicken Breast and Apple Honey Ham. There's Hand-Crafted, Old World Italian style Fresh Mozzarella that compares to cheese in the finest Italian markets and compliments those Luscious Tomatoes from Produce. With Just Like Mom's Salads, Party Platters of Deli, Cheese, Olives, Hummus and more, we're ready to help with any event.

Big Y's Cheese Merchant's Make Cheddar!

Big Y's Cheese Merchants were given the opportunity (in May/June 2017) to see how cheese is made – and actually take part in the process! The Cheese Merchants traveled to Grafton Village Cheese Company in Brattleboro, Vermont, to learn the steps, and science, behind cheese making. And while there, employees were able to suit up (with gloves, clogs & uniforms) and literally get hands on experience! While employees jumped around between various stages of the process, this video shows, in order, their involvement in the steps to making cheddar.
