Arizona’s Bacon-Themed Store Is All You’ve Ever Dreamed Of And More
There’s a reason bacon is one of the most popular breakfast foods, and one Arizona store has capitalized on that love affair. The Pork Shop in San Tan Valley boasts all things swine, and it’s a must-visit for anyone passing through town.
Tucked away in the San Tan Valley, this unassuming storefront in no way reflects the awesomeness waiting inside: mass quantities of bacon. And not just bacon, either — pork comes in all shapes and sizes here.
Wall-to-wall, different types of bacon and other pork products are just waiting to be devoured by hungry patrons. Grab a basket and look around - but don't say we didn't warn you about the sheer amount of choices.
Pepper-cured bacon is by far the crowd favorite. Salty, crisped to perfection, and with just the right amount of kick, it's an Arizona delicacy that everyone needs to try.
Sausage, fresh and smoked meat, and whole hams are among the other available items. Everything is sold by-the-pound at surprisingly affordable rates, so don't be afraid to stock up on whatever looks good!
In addition to the meat itself, you'll also find a vast array of pig-themed souvenirs on every wall and shelf in the store. It might seem a tad sadistic to showcase smiling swine in a place where they meet an untimely demise, but the whole charade is all in good fun.
Don't forget to stop by the store's paradoxically ladylike mascot on your way out. She makes the perfect backdrop for a commemorative family photo - oh, and you'll undoubtedly be jealous of her eyelashes.
Address: 3359 East Combs Road, San Tan Valley, AZ 85140. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
