Slovenian sausage???

I've recently moved to the Bay Area, and am wondering if anyone knows a place to find good Slovenian sausage? If not Slovenian, perhaps an excellent sausage shop would be able to help. I moved from Cleveland, where Slovenian food is easy to find and is a Christmas tradition for my family. Any tips will be much appreciated!

  1. I don't know if they have what you want, but there is an Euopean grocery store on Piedmont Ave in North Oakland. Euromix. They import lots of items. I wander through but don't purchase -- but they might have what you want or know a source. I walked in there yesterday and a couple was mulling over a sausage in their freezer section.

      Thank you! I will check it out!

    2. Check out Dittmer's Wurst Haus - you might have to ask about Slovenian and be able to describe what you're looking for.

      1. i am sure you might be able to find a Russian or Ukrainian sausage but i am not sure if that would be a suitable sub. for what your looking for. there are a few russian delis around if you google it

        1. Could you describe a Slovenian sausage? The only ones I ever had were made by my grandmother and uncles and I have never seen any commercially.

            blood sausage was what I was brought up with....

          2. I totally sympathize with you. I moved from Cleveland to Boston over 30 years ago, and I'm still looking for Slovenian sausage here. Slovenian sausage is Slovenian sausage -- nothing else comes close. For years, I've been having my Cleveland relatives do a run to Raddell's sausage shop, but they now have a web site and will ship! I heartily recommend them. The web site is: Hope you're able to get sausage for the holidays. It was a Christmas tradition at my house as well. Next weekend, I'll make potica!
