Karl's Sausage Kitchen & European Market in Peabody Closes Its Cafe

A North Shore market and deli that is known for its German food has shut down the dining spot within its store.

According to a source, Karl's Sausage Kitchen & European Market in Peabody has closed its cafe for good, with a message sent by the Route 1 shop confirming this, saying that they need to focus on the needs of the market in order to survive. They do hint that to-go options such as "take and bake" items and soup could be offered in the future, though that might not happen until next year.

Karl's had once been located further down Route 1 in Saugus (where it had been since 1958), with the place moving to its current location in Peabody in 2012; the shop offers a variety of sausages and other European meats as well as seafood, cheeses, and grocery items.

The address for Karl's Sausage Kitchen & European Market is 1 Bourbon Street (Route 1), Peabody, MA, 01960. Its website can be found at
