Fall is here, and now that the weather is finally getting a little bit cooler, we’re going to be spending more time outside. That means charcuterie! These magic plates of meat, cheese, fruit, bread, and sweet treats are the perfect way to enjoy a cool, fall day, or impress the guests at your next friendly gathering. There are a lot of charcuterie options in town, so to make it easier I narrowed it all down to the Top 5-04 charcuterie boards you should try!

St. James Cheese Company is one of the tastiest places in town to get a charcuterie board. Ordering on their website is easy; let them know what type of meats and cheese you’re into, and the team will handcraft a board that will perfectly fit your tastes. Selections change daily, so you don’t have to feel bad about treating yourself regularly. You can also choose an all-meat board or an all-cheese board if you so choose.

Price: $15- $33
