Severino's Community Butcher-SERIOUSLY GOOD- Mt View Farmer's Mkt.

thejulia | Jan 21, 200707:19 PM     15

The Mountain View farmer's market is already my favorite farmer's market around- great prices (as opposed to the Ferry Bldg), huge selection, good hours. And now, they've got a real butcher's stand with all sorts of pig products! I picked up country pate, head cheese (copa de testa), boudin noir, and spare ribs striated with thick, creamy white pork fat- yum. I came home and tore open the vacuum packed country pate to spread all over some Acme. This stuff is incredible- very garlicky but still clean tasting. It's addictive actually. I started eating it without the bread.

Here's their site- they're located in Santa Cruz:

They've been mentioned on Michael Ruhlman's food blog (http://blog.ruhlman.com/2006/12/index...) and also on the smallfarms/I heard Farms blog (http://smallfarms.typepad.com/small_f...)
