Since 1961, Bavarian Meats has been hand-crafting exactly what German-American sausage makers are supposed to hand-craft: over 50 types of sausages, wieners, cold cuts, smoked meats, and salami. As a third-generation family owned and operated business, we use the same beloved recipes that Max Hofstatter (Grandpa Max) brought over from Munich in 1933. We take immense sausage-maker pride in everything we create – using only the finest natural ingredients and Old World preparation methods.

Award-winning Landjaeger. Crowd-pleasing wieners. Conversation-starting tongue sausage loaves. Whether you’re having a BBQ or trying to impress a German in-law, we have everything from bratwursts and bologna to kassler and potato sausage. All of our meats are hand-crafted using the finest natural ingredients and Old World preparation methods. Yes, we know we said that earlier, but it’s important. We also said “crowd-pleasing wieners.”
Nestled in between the original Starbucks and an endless crowd of people pointing at things, our Pike Place Market store is a not-so-hidden gem of lunchtime adventures and German gummy bears. Over the years, the store has become a premier destination for foodies, connoisseurs, and people looking for that one mustard they had on a Wednesday while studying abroad.
