Source for Merguez in Manhattan

maggiej Jun 1, 2009 09:34 AM

I'm looking to buy some great merguez in the city (ideally E or W village or chelsea) this week. Three Corner Field Farm won't be at union sq before I need it, unfortunately. Where is a good source? Thank you!

      Like Ann900 said, Salumeria Biellese in Chelsea (8th and 29th) does have a very good merguez. It goes for around $11 / lb, if I remember correctly. Call ahead to make sure they have merguez, since they don't, always.

      (DeBragga & Spitler in the Meatpacking district carries Salumeria Biellese products, if you don't want to venture further uptown.)

        My go to for merguez is 3 Corner Field Farm - at the Union Square Greenmarket (not sure which days). It is the best merguez I've ever had. They're a small farm upstate that raises sheep. Also sensational lamb chops and sheep's milk cheese.

        I also like Salumeria Biellese in Chelsea on 8th Ave and 29th St, Thery make dozens of varieties of sausages- very high quality and reasonably prices.

          fyi, the OP specifically stated that "Three Corner Field Farm won't be at union sq before I need it, unfortunately." I agree though, their merguez is delicious.

            Which is why I suggested Salumeria Biellese.

            Just one stop across the East River in Williamsburg, Marlow and Daughters has had it when I've been in there.
