Grrenmarket Sausage Week!

January 16th to January 22nd, Jimmy’s No. 43 is proud to honor NYC Greenmarket and the incredible vendors that sell their sausages. We at Jimmy’s No. 43 are proud supporters of Greenmarket and local farms, and act as a host site for several CSAs, one of which is The Piggery. The Piggery’s heritage pork and sausages will be featured on the menu throughout the week and a series of educational and delicious events will be offered to the public.

January 16th from 1:00 – 4:00 PM - The Piggery Lunch and Butchering Demo. The Piggery is a unique pig farm in the Finger Lakes region of New York. This is their mid-winter celebration where farmers Heather and Brad will showcase their skills as farmers, butchers, and making charcuterie. They will be demonstrating how to butcher a hog and there will be a light lunch of specialty pork. There will be live bluegrass too! Tickets are $35 per person and can be purchased at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/142348.
