Sausage- Westchester?

Where do you find the best sausage in Westchester? Years ago we liked Turco's chicken sausage but Morton Williams is not the same. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    OK...don't laugh but the chicken/broccoli rabe sausage from the deli/meat counter at the Apple Farm in WhitePlains is amazing. The man behind the counter suggested that I take it out of the casing, brown it up and put some fresh broccoli rabe in the pan as well. Cover until rabe is soft, then add a generous amount of balsamic vinegar and serve over their fresh cavatelli. The pasta cuts the vinegar and it is easy and perfect!
    They have tons of other really good meat items and lots of recipe suggestions. The stuff is fresh and I have never questioned their suggestions. If something isn't top, they aren't going to sell it to you.

        do let the vinegar cook in a bit before taking the pan off the stove...

      My favorite sausage is beef sausage from Kiernan farm at the farmers' markets found across Westchester. They have all different varieties. We are partial to the hot italian sausage.

        Has anyone every tried Picone's Gourmet Sausage Shop in Mamaroneck, about a block away from the A&P? I take a dance class nearby and pass it all the time, and made a mental note about the place.

          I have had their sausage before. Although I have never bought sausage there myself, family members have sworn by it. The times I've had it I have really enjoyed it.

            Haven't been in a while but have had their sausage several times. Usually quite good. Chicken sausage can be a bit too salty but you should definitely give them a try.

              I like their sausage a lot. You can also buy it at local Stop & Shops, maybe A&P as well.

            A & S in Millwood--they do have other locations as well. Their chicken sausages, in particular, are terrific. One has red pepper, another has broccoli rabe.

                Whole Foods has a wide variety of terrific sausages.

                  Biancardi's and Calabria Pork Store on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. Admittedly not Westchester, but close and worth the trip. The latter place also has fantastic finocciono and house made dry sausage, soppresata and capicola
