Where do you buy chorizo in Boston?
I do not need anything fancy- just to throw some in when I cook my clams. The one I got in Russo was really expensive- $8 for a very small link. Is there anything cheaper?
While my Portuguese heritage has me buying chourico and linguica often, I agree with galka that Spanish chorizo is very difficult to find in Boston. I have found it once or twice at Whole Foods, forget the brand, but it's hit or miss. My wife was buying some from the meat vendor at the Belmont farmers market this year. That is very good, and is $8 for 3 links. They have it on Thursdays, I think through October.
Formaggio Kitchen (Huron Village), Formaggio South End (South End), and Las Ventas (SOWA), consistently carry Spanish chorizo (dried chorizo), in both mild (authentic) and hot variants. Price is around $9 for a standard-sized link. I don't know if that price is competitive, but the quality is.

I enjoy the chourico sold at Courthouse Seafood in East Cambridge. Its from Fall River, but the name escapes me.
