Frontenac – Pallucca’s Meat Market and Deli

After a recent move to Southeast Kansas, fellow blogger Mike, a southeast Kansas native, suggested a few places I should check out.  One of these places, Pallucca’s Meat Market and Deli is a real hidden gem.

Palluca’s is located in the back half of the old Pallucca and Sons Supermarket is located in downtown Frontenac.  Frontenac, Kansas, near Pittsburg,  is a town rich in Italian history, due primarily to the coal mining industry, once a large part of the area.

As the name suggest, they have a meat market full of fresh cut pork and homemade sausages, as well as a deli. I picked up a delicious homemade Cuban (with prosciutto rather than ham or pork loin) which I then brushed with olive oil, pan fried and ate for supper.

What the name does not suggest (but the smokers do) is that they also do catering. If that wasn’t enough, they also have a small grocery area full of imported Italian foods.  There are several varieties of olive oils, breads, pastas and anything else you would need to prepare a genuine Italian feast.  Many of these items available would be nearly impossible to find anyplace else in Kansas.

I can’t wait to check out some of the many varieties of flavorful sausages on my next visit. You should check them out too!

Until next time,
