Is raw pork, called Hackpeter in certain regions, found in all German supermarkets? I am particularly interested in Northern Germany.
At butcher shops is it ready to eat?
Of course you find minced meat everywhere. However, as you want it for raw eating, I would not buy the packed stuff from a supermarket fridge but have it minced on the spot in a butchery. It must be stored cold and consumed on the same day, as freshly as possible.
Hackepeter is a regional word. The standard terms are Hackfleisch or Mett. Jokingly it is also known as Maurermarmelade (masons' jam).
Some butcheries even sell Mettbrötchen, rolls with minced meat ready for eating.
Actually, it is really common in Northern Germany. Most larger supermarkets (REWE, Edeka etc) have a butcher inside where you can get it. And as said above, many butcher shops (outside supermarkets) and quite a few bakeries will be happy to prepare fresh Mettbrötchen.
Hackepeter or Mett are the terms you can use. I always use the latter and it is probably easier to pronounce for you (simply like "met").
Hackfleisch is not the same thing, by the way.
