"Quark" & "Harzer"

Does Fairway carry any 'decent' Quark, you have been to Germany and must have tasted/tested various 'fat' content versions (10, 20, 30 & 40 percent)
anything like that available ?
Also 'Harzer' or 'Mainzer Handkaes' ?
Quark is needed to make a 'decent' Cheesecake.

We (Fairway) stock quark; German, no fat, low fat, full fat. It's around town; comes in from Haram-Christenson.
I thought our Ben's (Houston St.) fresh cream cheese (no gums) was the integral ingredient for cheesecake. Normandy fromage blanc.
I don't bother with German handkase. Pasteurized, mass-production; all I get is the smelly from them. No articulable flavor from the interior other than cheesiness. Vastly prefer other stuff from France and Northern Italy.
