Has anyone heard of or shopped at this place? Some one recommended it to me, but considering that is a bit of a drive from Philly I am not convinced.

    I know people from Mickleton who swear by it, but I doubt they have a lot else to point to. I'd be curious as well, if they have anything interesting. I am getting tired of brining anorexic supermarket pork to keep it moist.

      Thanks for the info. I might give them a call to see if they can get me fatback. I can't find it anywhere in Philly where I can buy less than 20 lbs or so. And 20 lbs of fatback is too much fatback for this guy.

        Have you tried Cannulil's in the Italian Market?

          Yeah, they always try to sell me salt pork.

          In fact once, they did sell me salt pork, which I didn't realize until I was 1/2 way through my sausage making. I love Cannuli's, but they don't seem to break down their pigs like I thought: for example, they only have bone-in frozen pork belly..no fresh boneless (or bone-in for that matter) stuff.

          I've tried all the Italian Markets butchers, but no dice. The only place that could get it for me was Giunta's in the Terminal, but they wanted me to buy 20 lbs of it.

            Did you try Halteman's at the Terminal Market? My husband buys it there in smaller pieces (also for sausage making). I think it's usually on top of the counter.

              I was under the impression that I had, but I can't recall seeing it on the counter, so it's entirely possible I've missed it! I'll head there asap as I've got some turkey meat in the freezer calling out for fatback and dried cherries.

              Thank you!

        Haines is definitely legit and worth a trip I think. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the Italian sausage.
