Why does all the good stuff seem to be in South SC County??!
The SJ Mercury News had a blurb on Freedom Meat Lockers & Sausage Co. (160 Hi Grade Ln., Freedom) in today's food section. How can you not like a place w/ "meat lockers" in their name? Article praises the meat retailer for winning 12 awards at the Cured and Processed Meats Championship at Chico State in Feb.--including the coveted "best of show" for their sectioned and formed ham. Top honors also went to their smoked pork loin, linguica, smoked poultry, followed by unmentioned second places.
Had only heard about Corralitos Sausage Co. which I haven't developed any strong allegiance to. Anyone have the scoop on Freedom Meat Lockers? Linked some reviews from Monterey Bay Opinions below.
Also just stumbled across a listing for Sundance Gourmet Distributors (57 Hangar Way, Watsonville). Sounds like a big warehouse supplier that is occasionally open to the public. Anyone been there and know where I can find their public sales schedule?
Thanks. May need to move closer to Watsonville now...
