fresh Chorizo

anyone know where to buy in the Baltimore/Towson area?? Would rather not buy frozen.

  1. I assume you mean Mexican chorizo rather than Spanish, since you specified fresh.

    It's easily obtainable in Fells Point and Upper Fells Point. I've gotten at a place called La Guadalupana at Wolfe and Eastern, but it's been a number of years and I think the name of the place may have changed.

    1. Harris Teeter makes their chorizo in-store.

      1. if you were in DC, Canales would be the obvious choice for either variety. (in case anybody else is looking for this)

            I've tried all of their varieties of fresh sausage and found them to be quite good. Hope you enjoy the chorizo.

              Update...Harris Teeter meat guy says they don't make their own chorizo...and they were out of the one they do stock!

                I was in the Mchenry Row store yesterday and the label on the package stated that it was made in-store. I'm sorry for misdirecting you, crosby.

                  Not a problem Vidute...but that is the store I was in yesterday! Weird...we must have talked to 2 different people!

        2. Shoppers Food Warehouse always has a number of fresh locally-made styles here in Arlington - can't say whether they carry it near you.

            SFW in Annapolis also a variety of different styles of fresh chorizo, labeled by country. They seem to cater to a growing Latino population so I'm guessing the three SFW's in Baltimore also carry chorizo.

              Also, in AACo the newly reopened Food Value on Ritchi Hiway stocks a variety. I've gotten it at Whole Foods as well, ok, but a much tamer product.
