Technically, no, but we recommend it. Salami is shelf-stable, so it doesn’t require refrigeration.  Before opening the package, no refrigeration is required for salami. After opening, we recommend refrigeration to maintain freshness, quality and aesthetics.  For best results, once removed from packaging, keep it wrapped in butcher paper and put it in the fridge.  Other products from Salty Pork Bits do require refrigeration, refer to the individual product for more details.

During warm weather months, we often ship our salami with cold packs to minimize rendering and maintain aesthetics. Fat melts at higher temperatures, but it does not impact the quality of the product. If your cold pack has melted, know the quality of the product has not changed.

Unfortunately we don't offer local pickup. Locals can visit our Pop-Up shop located in the Strip District.
