ISO Toulouse sausage in the Triangle

Fresh Market? A Southern Season? Has anyone spotted Toulouse (or Toulouse-style) sausage around these parts?

    I've bought these at Southern Season in the past. BUT, since the ownership change, some of the inventory items have disappeared. They have a smaller variety, though it is still large. I'd call them to see if they are in stock -- they have appeared sometimes in the display cases with the pate, and sometimes in the refrigerator section with the dry sausage. The Fresh Market in Chapel Hill carries very little along these lines.

      How much are you looking for? Some butcher counters will do a custom batch of sausage for you, if you have a decent size order and know your ingredients. This is perhaps a better solution for a group than a way to make cassoulet for 1.

        Close...cassoulet for six. That means two pounds at most, and I would be surprised if that met anyone's minimum for a custom order. I'll try Southern Season this wknd.

        Thank you both!

          DeVinci in Wake Forest has done a custom order for me at only 5 lbs you can try them. Also, I just made venison sausage and had to buy something like 100 feet of casings and only used about twenty if you want to try your hand at making some.

            I did a small custom order with that Fresh Market/Whole Foods hippy grocery store out by the airport. It was easy. Also, try Cliff's in Carrboro. Cliff knows a lot about meat. With enough notice, they'll probably work with you.

              Are you talking about Earth Fare?

                Yes, thank you. The meat dept at Earth Fare was very helpful when I asked for a custom grind of sausage.
