Olliffe to take over St. Lawrence Market’s Sausage King
Olliffe, the popular Summerhill butcher shop, put out a press release this morning to announce that it was acquiring St. Lawrence Market stalwart The Sausage King effective September 2. The new shop, The Sausage King by Olliffe, will feature gluten- and filler-free handmade sausages, as well as traditionally raised pork, beef and poultry. There will also be sandwiches, salads and other prepared foods. Co-owner and head butcher Ben Gundy will oversee operations at the market, including renovations that the release promises “will bring it up to a similar style and layout aesthetic as its other shop” (if they’re successful, it’ll be something of a departure from the rest of the market). Ark Siniak, the third owner of The Sausage King, will no longer be playing an active role in the new operation, although he’s apparently been working with Gundy over the last two weeks on sausage-related matters.
