How we get food to put on our family’s table has undergone many changes throughout history. Mankind started by nomadic living going to the food, to becoming farmers raising food in one place, to shopping at a small grocery store, to shopping at mega-stores, and now we are gravitating once more back to a smaller, more specialized grocery store. We’re learning that more isn’t necessarily better and that we miss the personal attention.
What’s more, you may be finding that you enjoy the social interaction more with a local butcher and grocer. Not only can you get expertly butchered premium meats, but also advice on how to prepare meals and which seasonings would complement your meat of choice. Another advantage of shopping at this type of grocery store is that you can take home exactly the amount of meat you need — no extra to go to waste or cause overeating. As for the other grocery items offered, while you won’t have the extensive selection you would with a mega-store, the inventory is precisely selected to meet most needs. It sure does save time, too, because we can easily get confused by too many choices.
At The Butcher’s Market in Charlotte, North Carolina, we believe this trend toward a smaller grocery store makes a lot of sense, and we are proud to be a part of it. Between the quality of our products and our excellent customer service, we believe you’ll agree that small grocery store shopping has a lot of appeal.
