Where to buy dried smoked sausages in South Bay Area?
You didn't specify what kind of sausage :-).
There are some darn tasty German 'hunter' sausages available at Alpine Village and Eschbachs. Most Asian markets will have dried Chinese and Vietnamese style sausages, if that floats your visitors boat.

You can get Spanish style sausages from La Espanola in Harbor City. They make it right there, and distribute through gourmet stores in the US and overseas.
Anything they make is about a million times better than Hickory Farms, but also more expensive. Don't know if you wanted to keep the price down, or if you wanted to send back some really good stuff.
