Porcine and thyme, Thai peanut, lamb and feta, goat chorizo with roasted garlic – not your typical sausage samplings found at an area grocery store or even in a specialty meat market. However, customers of the Local Pig Charcuterie in Kansas City can choose from these fresh- sausage selections and so much more at this Old World- style, artisanal meat-cutting and sausage shop.

“There’s been a market in Kansas City for homemade sausage, but not really any place for customers to get it,” says Alex Pope, the former chef-turned entrepreneur who opened Local Pig one year ago. “All of the sausage we make is from original recipes. We are making things that are far from the industry standard.”
