Murray’s Nationwide Our Partnership with Kroger
At Murray's, our mission is to bring the best cheese selection to America, and we’re doing just that through a partnership with The Kroger Company. Murray’s has been a New York food destination since 1940, and we’ve been shipping cheese by mail around the country for years. But until we partnered with Kroger, we had no way to bring the Murray’s experience to your community. We are excited to share cheese with you in mini-Murray’s shops found in select Kroger, King Soopers, QFC, City Market and Fred Meyer stores.
What is the Murray’s experience? It’s about sharing the cheeses (more than 150 varieties!) and many other artisan-made goods that we find across the world. It’s about teaching you cheese through tasting and introducing you to your cheesemaker. We’ll never stop learning and sharing cheese with you every day of the year – for your everyday cooking and snacking to your festive celebrations.

Shawn has worked for Kroger for almost 5 years, three of them in Cheese, but only the last year with the Murray's shop.Shawn, what are the most popular items in your cheese shop?
Shawn is currently "single, but hopeful!" He doesn't have any kids, but we think he may have some fish [Ed. Note: No Shawn, Fish don't count as kids!] In his words: "I love finding new music, European rock bands tend to get my attention recently but anything with great lyrics and a good vocalist works for me. Beyond that I enjoy playing a video game from time to time, camping, hiking, or just spending time with family and friends."
"Anything Sartori brand seems to be popular, especially the Merlot Bellavitano! Can't wait for the Murray's Cognac Bellavitano later this year!"If you were a cheese, what cheese would you be and why?
"It's between two. Either Naked Goat because I love being free (Thanks Dee!); or Drunken goat because it is to me the perfect balance for a cheese, texture is creamy yet firm, flavor is strong yet subtle, just yummy!"If you could spend the day with a cheese maker who would it be and why?
"I would want to spend a day with the makers at Sartori I think. I know they hand rub every wheel they make and would love not only to see the process they go through with their wheels but where and how some of their ideas have come from."If you could serve a cheese plate to 1 historical figure, who would it be and what would you serve him/her?
"I would serve either to Thomas Jefferson or George Washington. I would give them the Herb Goat log from VBC, Tillamook Extra Sharp, Maytag Blue, 34 Degree Crackers, Kissels Blueberry Lavender and Eden to round it all out. GO USA!"What is your idea of a perfect pairing?
"To me a perfect pairing would have to be anything that is synonymous with a certain dish. IE, if you think Fondue the first thing on your list is Gruyere. Outside that a perfect pairing could be anything YOU like!"
