This is a family owned market that also makes some of the best pot pies and sausages. I make it a priority to order my pies in advance whenever I am heading northeast toward NH or ME, as their pies sell out quickly. I only...More

Im not sure you would get a recipe...There are not many places in this area that sells tomato sausage. I do know Butcher Boy in North Andover MA & Tuckaway Tavern in Raymond NH sells them but not as good as Thwaites!!
