Where to find: Sweet or Hot Italian Turkey Sausage 

Four places to find house-made sausage

A recent transplant asks where she can find house-made sweet Italian turkey sausage in the Charlotte area. The Meat House, in Ballantyne, has two recipes to make Italian Turkey sausage: one hot, one sweet. Either sausage requires a 24-hour notice to the butcher and sells for $6.99 per pound. Additionally The Meat House will make your family's sausage for you. Give them a copy of your family recipe, and they will make turkey, chicken or pork sausages per your specifications. This request also requires a 24-hour notice.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
