About the Top 4 Best Cheese Shops in the 2021 Best of Oakland and the East Bay

Oakland Magazine’s Best of Oakland was born with the idea to give readers in Oakland and throughout the East Bay a chance to voice their opinions on their personal ‘Family Favorite’ choices for Best Cheese Shops and all kinds of everyday categories. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we’ve been able to make it better and better.

The voting for Best of Oakland Best Cheese Shops is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in the month of February with open write-in nominations for reader’s favorite Best Cheese Shops taking place. As more and more nominations come in, the most written-in Best Cheese Shops become automatically selectable and listed making it easier and easier for people to cast their nominations. And write-in nominations continue to be open until the end of the month.

As the nomination period for Best Cheese Shops in the first round comes to a close in mid March, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominee Best Cheese Shops being selectable in this final round of voting during the month of March and April. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorite Best Cheese Shops from among those that are listed.

The final winners are posted in June

We hope you enjoy! And we hope you cast your vote in February and again in April!
