Ruef’s Meat Mar­ket

Chris Hessling moved to New Glarus in 2014 with a mission: re­store the art and soul of sausage mak­ing. He washed dishes at a 104-year-old meat mar­ket called Ruef’s with hopes of one day buy­ing it. Last year, af­ter the owner passed away, he did. Chris has re­stored the shop’s old-world charm, as well as recipes that for­mer owner Willy Ruef es­tab­lished in the mid-1900s.
