Midwest Living Review

Hannah Agran
For a half-century, Ruef's Meat Market has sold authentic Swiss sausage and other meats from a tiny storefront in downtown New Glarus.

There is absolutely nothing fancy about Ruef's Meat Market, except, perhaps, for the new-fangled pineapple brats that the owners started making recently in a nod to contemporary tastes. Most of the products in the case are variations on authentic Swiss recipes, and whoever's behind the counter when you visit will gladly talk through the subtle differences between schublig, cervelas and mettwurst. Prices are comparable to what you'd pay in a supermarket ($4-ish per pound), and most products travel well, even without refrigeration, so it's a great stop for travelers.
