Pulled pork doesn't keep as well as many of the carefully curated artisanal meats, but then, it's not meant to.
It's the star of the weekday-only lunch menu, a ready-to-eat showcase for Dickson's locally sourced beef, lamb, pork, goat, and poultry. Though the brief menu may change from day to day, this very juicy pulled pork sandwich ($9), zinged with a crunchy, spicy slaw, seems to be dependably available. Admire it, then have your way with it.
Also shown below: boar sausages (about a quarter-pound per link, at $10 per pound), some looser-knit, suffused by chili and cumin, some more-taut, with a touch of fennel; and sausages on the grill during one of Dickson's many appearances at the New Amsterdam Market. Don't overlook the shop's standout selection of condiments; on one recent visit I noted mustard from Bauer's, cane syrup and molasses from Steen's, pickled watermelon rind from Old South, and piri-piri sauce from a small producer in Asbury Park.
