Pesach shopping in Brookline?

We live about two hours from Brookline, MA but have only been there once. When we were there in November we were impressed with the Butcherie and some of the other places. Better meat at better prices than we see closer to home (we have limited options here in our town and are about an hour from either West Hartford or New Haven.)

We are thinking of making the trip to Brookline this coming Sunday (March 22) but I am wondering if it is still too early. I was briefly in the Super Sol on Main St. in Queens yesterday and my sense is that they are only just know starting to put Pesach stuff on display, though the meat section was already K for P.

If I go this Sunday am I going too early?

    I DON'T KNOW ABOUT HIS MEAT ITEMS BUT BUTCHERIE HAS BEEN GETTING PASSOVER PRODUCT SINCE FEBRUARY. ACTUALLT THE STORES OUT OF NEW YORK START SETTING UP PASSOVER MUCH EARLIER THAN NEW YORK STORES BECAUSE THEY KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE SCATTERED AROUND THE STATE THAT DON'T WANT TO WAIT FOR THE LAST MINUTE.AS FAR AS MEATS GO I SUGGEST YOU CALL.BUT ON GROCERY AND FROZEN PRODUCT EVEN SOME PASSOVER SODA YOU SHOUD BE OKAY

      I hate to be rude, but gleibler. That button on your keyboard by your left pinkie, that says caps lock. Please press it. Thanks.

      FYI, as I understand it, most meat is considered K for P all year. You could buy & freeze meat in advance if you wanted. I also think the secular supermarkets prepare earlier than the kosher ones, so the local Pathmark will have their Pesach section set up far earlier than Super Sol and the like.

        I'm going to disagree- Glatt Mart and Moisha's have their pesach sections set up really well and in prominent display. Most of the stores are Kosher for Passover with only a small section of chametz items. Shoprite and Stop and Shop seem to set up later..
