Where to get merguez in NYC?
I'm looking to make a Moroccan-type recipe that calls for merguez and I'm having difficulty finding it. Any tips on where I could buy merguez in Manhattan would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Citarella. Bought it there a few weeks ago. It was quite tasty.

Union market. I hear Pinos Prime Meats, but have never been. Union Mkt is good, I have used it for a tagine type dish.
Merguez are not truly Moroccan but Algerian/Tunisian. Just like couscous, a typical Berber food from Algeria. Good merguez are a blend of mutton and beef. Unfortunately those you find in NYC are mostly made of beef only. A decent merguez (beef only) can be found in Astoria at Bidaoui 24-19 Steinway or Nassem 25-65 Steinway which are both Moroccan butchers...
