Taylor Ham??

  • t

Just moved to Austin a few monthes ago from New Jersey and I am now severly craving Talor Ham. I have been on a mad search and I am wondering if maybe I have overlooked somewhere that may be selling it in the Austin Area.

In my search I was told that HEB will sell it on a trial basis and if it fails they will sell me a huge roll of this (bigger then a salami roll not sure what I would do with that much of it).

At any rate this is my last ditch effort before going to the extreme (ordering from Boars Head or porkrollxpress).

  1. I used to buy it as a treat for my Jersey ex at Central Market's deli counter.

      Try the following website.

      Pricing is good, but shipping costs can be high.

    2. If you can find it let me know. I agree a 6lb roll is a little much but after 12 year of of looking I carry some back in baggage every tip back home to NJ

      1. Every HEB and Central Market I've been to carries it... I used to have a roommate from Newark.

        1. I moved to Texas three years ago and so far have found that Market Street sells taylor ham. I haven't yet discovered a diner that serves it, (not many diners in Texas, either). To aid Jerseyites who miss the food back home I started a blog, If you've found where to find subs, pizza, taylor ham--anything with the taste of the Garden State, check out the site and let us know where them.

            Oops, incorrect posting, so I deleted it.

          2. Any former Jersey natives from the Paterson area?? In Houston,, I go to the deli section at Central Mkt.. If I could only find hard rolls (w/poppy seeds ala NJ),, it would be magic!
