Any local Charcuteries in Oregon or Washington?

Does any one know of any locally produced Charcuteries in Oregon?

  1. Viande meats in City Market on NW 21st in Portland.

    If you're interested in Washington, I believe that there's a little place in Seattle--what was the name of the guy--Armando something? :^)

      The name of the place is Salumi, founded by Armandino Batali (Mario's father).


    2. Salumi on Second Ave in downtown Seattle is stellar. Try the finocchiona -it is addictive. See The Metropolitan Markets in Seattle also carry some of their cured meats.

      If you're ever downtown at lunchtime, try to shoe horn yourself in the door and eat whatever they've got cooking that day. And if you spy an older lady in the window making cannelloni, by all means have one of those for dessert.

            Like Nettie said, Viande in City Market on NW 21st (and Johnson) makes their own sausages, pates, terrines and sometimes other yummy tidbits like cassoulet. They cure their own ham too. They don't make much in the way of cured sausages/salumi but their fresh sausages and their pates/terrines are worth the trip.

          2. You will find an incredible selection of charcuterie at Elephants deli just of W Burnside, with plenty of choices from Salumi...
