Does anyone know where I can find a market or butcher that sells authentic Irish/British bacon and or sausages in the Philly area?

    Martin's - the sausage place at Reading Terminal - has started selling British-style bangers as part of their repertoire. I'm not sure who might have the right sort of bacon, but I might ask the folks at Martin's if they have it, or know another vendor who does.

      Try the English Gardener GIft Shop in Haddonfield. I know they have foods in a freezer/fridge case in the back of the store. Or maybe the British Chip Shop across the street will sell you some.

        A Taste of Britain in Wayne carries some groceries. In their old location they used to carry refrigerated products. Don't know if they still do. Would call before going.

          My thoughts exactly. T of B may be the place to ask even if they don't carry the same fare as years ago.

            Yes, T of B still carries prepared and other items in their freezer. I just bought some pork pies, sausage rolls, white pudding, etc after our afternoon tea this weekend.
