Friday For the Foodies: Sunnyside Meat Market / Ridgewood Pork Store

Recently, I read about a couple of stores in Queens owned by the same people that make their own salamis and sausages.  Last Saturday and this past Monday I had the chance to check them both out. The first of these two stores is the Sunnyside Meat Market.

The Sunnyside Meat Market is located at 4310 43rd St which is just north of Queens Boulevard. I took the 7 train, exited at 40th street and made my way over there.  If you don’t know about this store, you should. It is the sister store to the Ridgewood Pork Store in Middle Village Queens (located at 516 Seneca Avenue) where they make salamis and sausages from scratch. There is not enough room to make the cured meats in Sunnyside so everything is made at Ridgewood and brought over. The staff at both stores are friendly, welcoming and will take the time to explain to you (and give you tastes) of anything they make. This is European quality meats at non-Manhattan prices.
