Thank you. I have been there, it's a decent shop. The meat is either grass-fnished, or grain finished... cant remember

Ok, I've seen a variety of bacon. Most of the stuff in the stores looks really fatty (so wasn't sure if you were thinking more meaty bacon or what).

Sorry, should have been more specific, I guess. Pastured Pork is what I was going for.

I second the Linkery...AWESOME PLACE! I've seen uncured bacon at Whole Foods and/or Henry's, but I'm unsure if it's pastured or grain-fed. FYI - I hear that the store attached to the Costa Brava Spanish restaurant in Pacific Beach, Pata Negra, now carries authentic, imported Jamon Iberico (pata negra): pigs are fed grain/corn for a several weeks after weaning, then left to forage the Spanish hills for ACORNS. The flavor is unbelievable! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamon_iberico

Try The Linkery -- they might have some or know where to get some.

Also, I ordered some Mangalitsa bacon from WoolyPigs.com -- not cheap, but AMAZING.

@ Todd, your post is from 2010, but maybe you are still interested in it.

In La Jolla is a great butchery called "Homegrown Meats" it is specialized on grass-fed beef and they sell a super delicious bacon there.

-> http://www.homegrownmeats.com/

Not just the bacon is good, also the meat.

The butchery is not close to my place but I invest the time and drive there every week twice.

They sell pastured bacon at the Encinitas farmer's market on Sundays 10-2 (or so). I don't like it as much as regular bacon -- much less fatty and it's cured very subtly... not enough salty/smoky flavor for me. But it's healthy!

This is a bit of an old post, but my question is, what do you consider "quality bacon"?

I've heard (and had) good things from Sausage King in Hillcrest though I've never been, myself.
