Kosher Meat at Trader Joe's in Cary, NC

Tarz Dec 7, 2006 02:30 PM

I just went to the new Trader Joe's in Cary last night, which carried a large selection of kosher meat -- all of it fresh rather than frozen! There were four fresh Empire products: boneless skinless breasts, whole chickens, ground turkey, ground white-meat turkey. Moreover, there was also fresh kosher beef: four varieties of steak and stew meat by David's.

And the prices were cheaper than anywhere else I've seen in the region -- and those places only carry frozen products.

For those of us in the area who keep kosher, this is really a great event!

It's also near Udupi, where before going to Trader Joe's I had a wonderful Jaipur Paneer Dosa.

    I am in Atlanta and was delighted to see kosher meat when I went to the Trader Joe's here! I also saw it in the Trader Joe's in Aptos, California last week on a visit ...

    Bravo for Trader Joe's! Many of their products are under kosher supervision .. they "get it"!

      Yee-hah! Not being familiar with David's I googled them. For those who need this info, David's is not glatt but is processed by AgriProcessors, the largest kosher processor in the country, and is certified by a Minnesota-area Chabad Lubavitch rabbi. This information comes from an article in the Forward.

        Wow thanks! So I guess maybe I'll be having chicken for Passover & I've got a lot of Muslim friends to tell too.

        Wow, thanks for the info! My mom has been having frozen kosher meat shipped to her house in Durham for over 40 years. She'll be thrilled!
