Looking for good merguez

Looking for merguez that I can take home and grill. I hear there is good merguez at the US farmers' market. Would love to be able to make it there, but usually it's too hard for me to get there on the right day of the week, before they close or are sold out. Any other suggestions where one can buy good, ideally house-made merguez?

  1. Although it's kosher- Fischer Brothers on the UWS (72nd St) has amazing merguez sausage. Even my non-kosher eating friends love it. Great flavor, and bit of spice.

      You might also want to check with Jody & Luisa at Dancing Ewe Farm at the Union Square Market on Fridays. They often make their own. They are there primarily selling their artisanal cheeses, however.

    2. Citarella's sometimes has it and Pino (Sullivan below Houston) sometimes makes his own--call to ask.

      1. It's been a while since I"ve been there, but Oriental Pastry on Atlantic Ave near Court, in Brooklyn, makes excellent fresh merguez.
