      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.

          Considering that I clicked on this thread to say the same thing, I'll third this.

        You'll probably have more luck posting this on the Boston boards. In the meantime, here's a tip: http://www.viennabeef.com/store/index...
