Great chorizo in Peninsula/South Bay?

manjar | May 5, 2009 07:25 AM

We used to by *exceptional* chorizo from a stall at the Berryessa flea market, however it has not been available for the last couple of years. Does anyone know where to buy really good Mexican chorizo (i.e. to use as an ingredient)?

What distinguished the flea market chorizo from the stuff that comes in a tube at the supermarket was a better texture, more sophisticated use of spices, and what seems like overall a better level of ingredients (especially the meat/fat that is used).

I've tried a few different carnecerias in area, but so far nothing that has been better than the mass-produced stuff. I've seen recipes to make my own, and will probably do some of that as well, but I'd like to have an outside source for convenience. Any advice would be appreciated!
