Anyone know of any places in the greater Boston area that sells scrapple? Retail or restaurants are both welcome. Thanks in advance.

    Oddly enough, there seems to be a mini Scrapple Zone in Concord--I've found it at the old-fashioned grocery store in West Concord and also the fancy wine and food shop across from the ice cream place (sorry to be so vague, I don't remember what either one is called--this is not in downtown Concord but, argh, is there a train station? if so, it might be near there). Less convenient than Savenor's but probably cheaper.

      Ancillary but kind of related: Mike & Patty's occasionally serves pork roll, egg and cheese (if you please, on a kaiser bun -- actually, on English muffin or baguette), and it's delicious. More NJ than PA, but still kind of a novelty up here.

          Meatland on Centre Street in Jamaica Plain always has scrapple - both hot and mild.

            I have never had hot scrapple, and didn't even know it existed. Have you tried it? Do you know what brand it is?

            This thread is getting me hungry; especially with the Phillies in town this weekend, I might have to hunt down some scrapple.

              Sadly, much if not all of the scrapple you will find here isn't really great. Habbersetts scrapple from Philly is fantastic, but as far as I know not available here. You can order it from their web site.
              Prav, does Savenors carry Habbersetts?

                I just googled to see what the Habbersetts labels looked like.

                By my memory of the colors on the label, I think Savenors carries this brand: http://www.hatfieldqualitymeats.com . Pretty sure that's the brand they carry.

                  I was first introduced to scrapple, specially ordered from PA , in the mid-60's, while attending an annual holiday event in Hibbing MN.

                  Savenors in Cambridge has it.

                    I've gotten it frozen at Stop n Shop at Suffolk Downs. Perhaps most of them have it, but my Shaws doesn't seem to.

                    It was from Wisconsin--not Habersetts, but it hit the spot nevertheless.
