Need a Whole Pig - Atlanta area

  • 6

We are planning a pig roast for this thanksgiving but don't have a local source for the pig. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Try the Porky Pig Market in the Auburn Market downtown. They sell whole pigs and they have several sizes available. You may need to order in advance so I would talk to them soon.

      Liz, speaking of the Auburn market, do you know where the Italian market moved, once at Sweet Auburn?

        Yes, Salumeria Taggiasca is not re-located as far as I know, but some of their products are supposedly avaiable at Via Elisa on Howell Mill. I haven't been so someone else may be able to comment more accurately on this.

    2. LizATL is right about Via Elisa. One of the Salumeria owners rents a small cheese and charcuterie booth at Via Elisa. The selection is very well chosen.

      1. Via Elisa is so small. Where is there a "booth"?

        1. If you want to go super gourmet and buy straight from a farm versus a retail outlet call/email Riverview Farms. They supply to many of the high end local area restaurants (Bacchanalia). You will NOT be disappointed, I promise. Let them know what you're planning, they have a good selection of vegetables that they would be happy to box up for you as well. Heck, if you buy a whole pig try to negotiate some free veggies!
