where to get Irish breakfast items (rashers, sausages and blood sausages) --uncooked

weezy1074 Aug 4, 2009 03:45 PM

I am looking for a place to purchase uncooked items for an Irish breakfast, that I can cook at home (or better camping!) Namely rashers, sausages and blood sausages. I know Roxie market carries this stuff...their stuff just looks dodgey. Can anyone recommend anyplace else to get these items or can you tell me Roxie's won't have me getting sick?
I thought of sourcing from a website that ships thru NYC but it is going to set me back an obscene amount and I'm certain I can find something in SF for a reasonable price.

    There is also a corner store at 15th St and Castro called Healthy Spirits (I think) that sold a lot of Irish breakfast staples when I lived there a year ago or so. Worth checking out if you're in the area since I can't promise they still do but I know they're still under the same ownership.

      Mollie Stones on the Peninsula (specifically San Bruno location) sell Irish sausages & bacon. Darn good they are too. And I've seen black puddings at Draegars too.

        Here's a permalink to a thread where someone found back bacon. I found it at Andronico's Shattuck this year. The thread also has suggestions for other places.

          Excellent thanks- this is helpful. I'll have to check out the Cafe in Berkeley.

              I was at John Campbell's Bakery on Saturday and they have several products in their refrigerator case that are not just baked goods. You might try calling them.
