The Alpine butchers stuff 10,000 pounds of authentic German sausages each week. Our sausages tend to be more finely ground, balanced and mild in flavor than sausages produced by the big factory processors. We have over 30 varieties of artisan, European and German sausages. Below are just some of the selection you’ll find in our store. If you are looking for authentic and award-winning European and German sausages in Southern California then there is only one place to come: The Alpine Market. If you show up early enough you might catch Wurstmeister Alex Lagger in time to say hello. He is a true craftsman!
