Looking for andouille sausage

Anyone know of where I can find good andouille sausage in Brooklyn. I live in Cobble Hill but I will happily travel for tasty sausage. Thanks!

  1. Whole Foods has pretty good Andouille sausage. I can't comment on how authentic it is, as a New Yorker.

    I don't know if *every* WF has it, all the time... but I've bought it there before. Maybe phone first (?)

    1. I've bought andouille in Fairway in Plainview, but I'd imagine Red Hook would have it.

      1. I make jambalaya at least once a month and always buy my andouille at Los Paisanos butcher shop in Cobble Hill. Very tasty stuff, they do lots of different sausages.

          Bierkraft in on 5th Avenue between Sackett and Union Streets. They even have the tasso ham that some jambalaya recipes call for.

            Thanks for all of the suggestions. Last time I got the packaged andouille (I think Schaller & Weber) at Fairway and it just didn't have that special something. I will probably try Los Paisanos next time due to its location and your recommendations. Thanks again!

            Was going to go to Paisanos, but found it at Blue Apron in Park Slope (from Karl Ehmer). They also had Tasso.

              Hi Gowanus Eater,

              Here's an interesting thread from a ways back that is very close to this topic.


              Apparently, "andouille" can mean a number of different types of sausages depending on the culture (just like"chorizo") .

              Hope you find this interesting!


              Glendale is hungry...

              P.S. - And buy Karl Ehmer's andouille sausage with cheese at your own risk lest someone from New Orleans observe you doing so and go all Cajun hellfire on your you-know-what!

                Thanks. I read most of the threads on the topic before sending the gf venturing out to pick up the sausage while I cooked. Blue Apron's tasso was better than their packaged Karl Ehmer andouille, but it was definitely a cheese-less variety.

                  Ha! I'm from Baton Rouge.

                  And the hellfire is deserved..... ask anyone from Louisiana.
