Josh Reynolds for the boston globe

Bianco & Sons Italian Sausage

A family-run distributor that supplies Alma Nove in Hingham, Sonny Noto’s in East Boston, and others. There’s a small retail business; call a day ahead for your order, made in-house.

Borrelli’s Italian Deli

322 Merrimack St., Methuen, 978-687-2306,


This 40-year-old deli draws loyalists for five kinds of sausage, made in-house: sweet and hot Italian; tomato and cheese; tomato, garlic, and cheese; and “everything” sausage with peppers and onions. Owner Don Smeriglio uses extra-lean pork butt, which doesn’t flame up on the grill.
