Rockland Butchers?

  • 9
  • Share

Hi all, i've had a hard time finding a butcher or meat market in Rockland that has anything above pretty standard quality and was wondering if anyone knows of any close by? A place that offers dry aged steaks would be preferrable but at this point anything above my local supermarkets meat section would be welcome. Thanks in advance!

  1. have you tried mail order?? like lobell's or another big prime meat house in the city. or you can google dry aging yourself, i don't think it is that complicated. good luck!

    1. Martino's Market
      69 Railroad Ave
      West Haverstraw
      established 1913, enjoy an ice cold genesee on tap and a shot of bell's scotch while you wait for your order, kids get a can of soda. old man phil is a legend.

      1. Steve's Prime Meats in Congers. Has dry aged steaks at relatively reasonable prices. Try their sweet potato side dish and sauteed string beans as well.

          Mail order would be fine but I'm looking for somewhere I can go, get what I need, go home and cook it. I've been meaning to try Martino's (especially since i live 5 minutes away) but just have never made it over. Guess i'll have to give it a try one of these days. Steve's sounds like exactly what i'm looking for and will definitely check them out. Thanks!

            B7M Meat Market in Park Ridge,NJ is very good and has a wide variety.

              Totally agree. I've been going there since I was 5. It's fantastic.

        2. Steve's is great for really good quality meat. Particularily memorable was the enormous cut for osso buco & their prepared (but not cooked) rack of lamb.

          1. I also suggest both Steve's and Martino's. I tend to favor Steve's becasue its closer. I get my osso bucco from him and its always excellent. I jumped on the Whole Foods bandwagon once and regretted it.
            He also has a great deal where you can buy 10lbs of prepared chicken cutlets for $30.

            1. Oh, Martino's! Love that man. I don't live in Rockland anymore, but I used to be in that shop a lot. I love him so much, I even wrote a blog entry about him two years ago: http://birdpants.blogspot.com/. And yes, besides the miracle of Mr. Martino himself and the history of the place, the meat in both quality and selection are excellent. Highly recommended.
