  1. I would try Saigon Market on Maple Street in Manchester NH or if you're in southern NH, maybe H Mart in Burlington MA.

      Saigon market definitely has it.

    2. I would check with a butcher shop to see if they can order it for you. I think it's hard to get from local farms bc theirs is usually already made into bacon. Last time I bought it was at Whole Foods, so if you end up going to MA you might find it there. I have also seen it at H Mart.

          1. Well, my last post got taken down even though i didn't actually plug any store in particular, but my point was you should be able to special order it through your local butcher shop. Expect to pay between $3-6/lb depending on quality.

              It probably has to do with you having someone contact you about buying something from you. I actually wish something like that were possible on here. I mean, a food business has a lot to lose knowing that anyone from here trying their product is going to post a review right after whether the stuff is good or not!

              Anyway...I'm curious if it is possible at all to find fresh pork jowls (cheeks). We just got a smoker and it would be awesome to be able to make some bacon from that stuff! Has anyone heard of finding that anywhere?

                Yeah, I guess my post could have been considered a plug, but if I had said I know a great place to get them and it's called "Insert name here", then it wouldn't be a problem? Nobody knows where anyone on here works so I suppose anyone could be plugging their own company....anywhoo...I am looking into pork jowl availability from a few sources in Boston and will post if they can be ordered directly from them.

                  You're absolutely right, if you went about it the right way you could be totally incognito about advertising your on place on here. That's why I would love to see some sort of outlet for that on here (i.e. separate industry forum) that way it would prevent people from doing it on the regular boards.

                  Yeah, so back to the pork....please let us know about those jowls :)!!
