Is there anywhere in Boston to buy the cheese made in the Azores?

On St. James in the Park Square building - if they can't get it - they might know where you can find it.

Might be somewhere in Somerville. Try walking into the PAC and asking, or PA's Lounge (That's Portuguese-American Lounge), the longest serving bartender there is the guy you wanna talk to.
Otherwise you need to drive to New Bedford.

Carries lots of cured Portuguese meats... I'd try there.

The Wine & Cheese Cask on the corner of Beacon and Washington in Somerville, though there's no Portuguese theme there.

in Roslindale. They might be able to advise you. But otherwise try a Portuguese Market.

They carry a good supply of Portuguese products. If that fails you could take a ride to Fall River. Chaves Market might have the specific cheese you are seeking. I would call them first. https://www.facebook.com/ChavesMarket/

on Cambridge Street near Inman Square. They have a bunch of Azorean and Azorean-American groceries, like the excellent Açoreana brand of linguiça, chouriço and morcela.

There are several different kinds of cheese from the Azores

Here's a link to ethnic markets in Boston:

Off hand, I haven't a clue where to find them. But I'd start with the Portugese markets in the list.

What do some of the labels look like on cheese made in the Azores?

I saw some Sao Jorge cheese at the South End Whole Foods on Harrison.

I personally prefer the Azorean Queijo Fresco, but haven't been able to find that anywhere.

I know they're different things, which is how I know that I prefer one over the other. This is a discussion about Azorean cheese, which includes both. Yay links to google searches: https://www.google.com/search?q=azores+map&espv=2&biw=1226&bih=700&sourc...

Market Basket too. Maybe a better question would be, "who doesn't sell cheese for the Azores".

Here you go:

These are where my Azorean friend goes when they aren't making it themselves.

Cambridge: Fernandes Fish Market
Somerville: Cross Street Market & Deli
Lowell – Lowell Portuguese Bakery
Peabody: Tremont Market

If you are up for a drive...

Portugalia Marketplace in Fall River – it's Portuguese product heaven! Olives, to cheeses, to seasonings, to everything else you want – might not need!
