Where can I buy andouille sausage on Long Island?

vlallen Aug 8, 2012 01:36 PM

Does anyone know where I can buy Andouille sausage on Long Island. I'm in western Suffolk, but will drive into Queens or out to Riverhead and beyond.
I've been looking at Mail Order from LA but the shipping costs are outrageous.
Thanks for any help

    Give these people a call:
    I know they have a variety of different sausages, though I can't specifically recall types.

    You might also try Fairway in Plainview.

      I buy really delicious, no chemical Andouille sausage, chorizo and Polska kielbasa at Wild by Nature in Huntington, made by Garrett County. Other large or well stocked natural groceries should have them, too.

      I've never seen them out of stock.

        Just back from Fairway; they have Aidell's Cajun style Andouille and also their chorizo.

          Wow, which Fairway? I called the one in Plainview, they said they didn't carry Andouille

            Plainview, last night. They probably meant not in their fresh meat case, or someone was too indifferent to look. It's on the upper shelf in the meat section, a row of Aidell's products. Not far from a bunch of D'Artagnan stuff, so if you like the sausage you get from them, you can ask Fairway to order it.

        Try calling Will Miloski's Poultry Farm Inc, Calverton, NY.

        They have specialty sausage.

          I just got some alligator meat there, they also carry rattlesnake and turtle, pretty sure they'll have something as common as andouille sausage ;-) My new go-to place for exotics.

          Thanks everyone for your help.
          I wound up calling D'Artagnan in Jersey and ordering from them.
          Very reasonable shipping and they even let me pick the delivery date.

            They don't have retail outlets selling their products near you? I ask because the nice market (Zeytinia) in tiny not-particularly-upscale Croton-on-Hudson in Westchester carries D'Artaganan andouille sausage.

              D'artagnan gave me a list of stored that have carried the andouille in the past, said they would probadly order it for me. I need it for next weekend and between the gas cost and the time issue, the $8.00 they charged for shipping seemed well worth it

              I hope it's better than their revolting, mushy hot dogs! Fairway in Plainview carries a bunch of stuff from them, as does Wild by Nature and probably Whole Foods in Jericho, if you like those, I'm sure they'd order them. So far, I haven't liked their prepared stuff, though.

                Aw mcf, buying D'Artagnan hot dogs is like buying artisanal Twinkies! Every time we do a hot dog tasting, Nathan's beats the fancy-pants competition. However, Nathan's pate de campagne, probably not so great. I'd put my money on D'Artagnan andouille.

                  You mean, you *don't* buy artisinal twinkies? :-)

                  I won't eat Nathan's. Nor Coleman's, Applegate, etc. I love Garrett County/Wellshire Farms products as much as I once loved Nathan's or Hebrew National. Their hot dogs pop when you bite 'em, and have great flavor and texture and, best of all, I'm not afraid to know what's in them. :-)

                  :What was so awful about the D'Artagnon one is that it was mealy, like moistened, grainy dust and paper inside, completely mushy when you bite it. I'm pretty sure I've never actually loved anything I've bought from D'Artagnan. I've never been disappointed by Garrett County, and for much less money. I haven't tried sausages from D'Artagnan, and I hope the OP gets a good product from them. Should be on the shelves at quite a few area stores.

                    Well said. My only point was that I wouldn't expect any Gascoigne charcutier to make a decent kosher-style dog.

                      That's a point well taken... but what they actually do produce is something you can't wait to spit out. The kind of thing that could have a family gathering around the trash or sink disposal together. Ignoring the awful taste, the texture was creepy/scary.

                      If you ask, I'll tell you how I really feel.
