  1. Check out Taylor's Sausages at the Housewive's Market in old Oakland

    907 Washington St
    (between 10th St & 9th St)
    Oakland, CA 94607

    They usually have fresh chorizo (they also have the best boudin blanc).

      Taylor's chorizo is very good, and I agree that there boudin blanc is great. I stuffed some in a pork loin and smoked it on the Weber for Thanksgiving. The drippings made a great gravy too.

    2. I haven't tried the chorizo, but the butcher counter at Super Mercado Mitierra on Fruitvale is good.

      1. Mi Tierra at 2082 San Pablo Ave has wonderful chorizo.

          If we're including Berkeley, the best chorizo I've had recently was from Fifth Quarter, at the Saturday farmers market.

        2. Try the search function: "chorizo crawl" and check all years.
