    DiPasquales in Newton, on Watertown st?
    Whole Foods has some mighty tasty looking sausages too..
    You might also want to try Dewars butcher shop in Newton Centre.

      Second DePasquale's on Watertown Street. They make 'em there and they're very good.

        Third Depasquale's, assuming you mean fresh Italian sausage.

        John Dewars (Newton Center) has amazing Italian sausages.

        It depends on what kind of sausages you're looking for.

          If you're looking for Italian sausages, this might help:


          Otherwise, Karl's Sausage Kitchen in Saugus is just awesome for other house-made brats, kielbasa, etc. I haven't had their Italian, though.

            their Italian is Good although it has a finer grind than most.

            IMO the best sausages around are handmade by the folks at the Boston Sausage Company (aka Smokehouse)

            Read about them in the Globe: http://www.boston.com/ae/food/article...

            They sell mostly to high end restaurants, but you can also buy them at Savenors or at their retail store in Norwell, which always has an electric skillet loaded with samples.

                  depasquale's. someone on this board once theorized that crack must be a secret ingredient, given the addictive nature of his consumption. they have odd hours, fyi.
