3618 The Barnyard
Built in Carmel in 1976, the Barnyard Shopping Village is a landmark on the Monterey Peninsula featuring more than 45 merchants, ranging from couture fashion shops and International restaurants to professional services and art galleries. The Barnyard hosts annual property events within its brick lined courtyards and is a popular shopping destination for residents and tourists alike.
In January of 2004, the Barnyard Shopping Village was purchased by SIMA Barnyard, LLC, a California-based company. Shortly thereafter in the Spring of 2005, the Barnyard underwent a revitalization that included new roofs with copper gutters , mosaic paths and creation of an open-air patio and a cozy fireplace. The improvements continued throughout 2006 with new signage, the painting of the property and enhanced parking. The cascading levels and impeccably landscaped courtyards were refreshed and remain a wonderful escape from the crowds, leaving visitors relaxed and eager to return.
The Barnyard Shopping Village features a variety of boutique shops specializing in art and gift collections, couture clothing, jewelry designs, women's golf apparel, equestrian wear, comfort, dress and casual shoes, home furnishings, and an array of spa, salon and professional services.
Eight locally owned restaurants offer a variety of casual and fine dining, featuring authentic local, regional and international cuisine options, including grilled fresh catch, fondue and healthy salads. Most menus include children's options, and food is available for any meal of the day, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The History Of The Cheese Shop ...
In 1973, a young couple, John & Nancy McCormick, tired of the corporate life, decided to start a business that was fun & enjoyable. Something that would fill all their senses, and something they could share with everyone. They even got two of Nancy's brothers, Michael & Neil, to join in the fun...and thus was the start of The Cheese Shop, a gourmand's Mecca for world class cheeses, gourmet foods and wines!!
Our first store opened in 1973 at the old Valley Fair Shopping Center in San Jose, California. We opened our present location, in the Carmel Plaza, downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, Memorial weekend in 1975, selling our San Jose location in 1979 to concentrate our efforts here. We added enough room to create a warm, cozy family enviroment that locals as well as tourists from around the world can revel in and enjoy!
I was lucky to join The Cheese Shop family in 1986, upon my return from travels in Europe, and prior to my scheduled return home to Honolulu, Hawai'i. Thirteen years later, I incorporated the business on our same Memorial anniversary, and today can proudly say that we have clients in all 50 states, and 20 countries.
Through this web site, I invite you all to come share in the O'hana (family) that is "The" Cheese Shop, Carmel. Enjoy in sharing all the bounties that our store, the beautiful region of Monterey County, and the world offers!! And remember my motto: "Eat Cheese, Drink Wine, Live Life Happy!"
