About Us

Born from a partnership between two of Lowell's best-loved food businesses, Sweet Lydia's and Mill City Cheesemongers, the Lowell Culinary Collaborative is a store, a school, and a vision.

  • It’s a place to buy great food: handmade confections, artisan cheese, natural wines, and more. It’s not a place to be intimidated, though - we have potato chips and penny candy, too, and we love it all. We hope you will, too.
  • It’s a place to taste wine, cheese, and chocolate; to take a class about food culture, science, and history; to learn a technique and share a community in the kitchen.
  • It’s a collaborative effort to promote the work of women and woman-identified food professionals, especially those who reflect Lowell's rich cultural diversity.

While we can't offer in-person culinary experiences yet, our virtual tastings are tons of fun and include customized sample packages available for pickup, delivery, or nationwide shipping. Please contact us to learn more!
