Dairy King - Bowers Fancy Dairy Products is not to be missed. The award-winning curdsmen and -women stock international cheeses alongside hand-dipped Cherry Glen chevre and Meadow Creek Dairy’s Grayson. “For years, it was the only place chefs would go to stock up on cheese. They have everything.”  On Your Market, Get Set, Eastern Market Secrets by Peter Smith, June 26, 2009

In the heart of Eastern Market, Bowers Fancy Dairy Products is a largely unsung gem for cheese-lovers on Capitol Hill and throughout the District.  If you haven't checked it out yet, you definitely should! D.C.

Gayot Guide Since 1969, restaurant, hotel, travel & other witty reviews by a handpicked, worldwide team of discerning professionals—and your views, too.

An Eastern Market institution, Bowers has been selling quality cheeses since 1964. Its selection includes hundreds of varieties of both domestic and imported cheeses flown in from around the world. You will find the familiar, the lesser-known and the hard-to-get, including a large selection of French, Dutch and English soft and hard cheeses. Raclette, used in the Swiss fondue dish, also is stocked. The attitude is down-home friendly, and domestic cheeses are treated with the same care as the imported ones.

Nothing compares to Capitol Hill’s Eastern Market, where you can shop for fresh vegetables and fruits, meats and cheeses, and pies and cookies.
