Chef Martin’s Sausages Available at Lunds & Byerlys StoresChef Martin Wallner, founder and creator of Chef Martin Old World Butcher Shop, proudly announces the launch of his retail sausage line; now available at Lunds & Byerlys stores throughout Minnesota.

Chef Martin first began making sausage when he was only four years-old while helping at his family’s butcher shop in Austria. Chef Martin’s family tradition became his passion. He continues to make his sausage the way he learned growing up- small batches with a special emphasis on quality, texture and flavor. Chef Martin has continued to use his traditional Austrian recipes but now presents his all natural sausage line as antibiotic, gluten, nitrate, and hormone free.Chef Martin’s Sausages Available at Lunds & Byerlys Stores
