      Salumeria in the North End definitely has it. I've purchased it there several times...

    2. I believe it's been posted here before that Karl's Sausage Kitchen in Saugus has it.

        I can confirm this, and repeat my Karl's Speck Story: when I asked the nice German lady what speck is, she replied, "Schhpeck? Why, speck is speck." (Of course! I knew that.)

        1. Don't know if it's the same thing you're looking for, but in German "Speck" means, basically, bacon, and the Schaller & Weber version (called double smoked bacon I think) is widely available in cheese/cured meat sections of grocery stores around here.

          1. The speck I have had it is essentially smoked prosciutto moreso than bacon.

            They have a great speck salad on the menu at Central Kitchen currently.
