Paulina Meat Market
This old-world meat market is a marvel of activity, especially on holiday-season weekends, when home cooks converge to choose from an unsurpassed offering of family-sized hams and roasts. Don’t pass up on the sausage or the homemade beef jerky, which are shaped like candy canes at Christmastime.
