      Fluky's, another local place, also offers packages:

      As does Portillo's. This site offers Portillo's, Vienna and other local favorites:

    2. You're going to have to go to the South Shore, but not too far.

        I will second the Windy City Eats recommendation. He has jars of the relish, sports peppers etc. out for sale.

        They are located in Weymouth about 15 miles south of downtown Boston.
