New at Atwater Market

So it turns out Wiliam J. Walter is still at Atwater market, and has a new small sign - but they only occupy a portion of their old space. The rest is shared by Charcuterie de Tours, and (today's big news, at least for me) Les Cochons Tout Ronds!!

And, as if that wasn't enough to make my day, Fromagerie Atwater now has jamon iberico in. It's yummy, but it's also $269/kg. (no, that wasn't a typo, unfortunately...) At four times the price, is it four times as good as the jamon serrano they carry? I'm not sure about that. It's not quite as decadently rich as the iberico I had in Europe, the one they carry here is a bit drier, and much less fatty. But still, for around $5 you can get a nice snack-sized amount of it to enjoy...

And while I was busy spending all of my money at Fromagerie Atwater, I noticed that they also now carry Christine Ferber jams, I think they had four different flavours, all look lovely and are around $16 each. (they had a chocolate and berry one, a raspberry and rose petal, and one or two others I can't remember offhand).
