Full service butcher in Baltimore?

So I just moved to Baltimore from Seattle and love it so far. The restaurants are awesome, the spring here kicks ass, etc. My big quandary these days is finding obscure animal parts for charcuterie. I'm talking about various offal, caul fat, duck fat, veal bones, lamb shoulder, unsalted fat back, calf feet, etc. I can occasionally find things here or there intermittently, but is there a butcher in town that would be willing to procure these? I've asked at places and they look at me like i'm crazy. I'd bring these guys cases of beer for the trouble! Any suggestions? Thanks!

  1. You can buy most of those at HMart on Rt. 40. Treuths in the same area also might be able to help.

      I've been to the Asian Market and H Mart. Pretty good with some things. I'm also looking for a carnicero too. They always seem to be willing to go the extra mile. Plus they are cheap!

    2. Not sure about in Baltimore itself, but Hemp's Meats near Frederick is amazing, and they source among the local farms.
      My friend ordered 20 lbs of marrow bones cut longitudinal from them recently.

        Sweet. I'll have to check them out... I'll report back.

      2. Sorry, don't have a Baltimore recommendation but come on down to Naptown (Annapolis) and do all your butcher shopping at My Butcher and More . . . you can also grab a deeeelicious deli sandwich to sate you for your trip back north. Call Mike (My Butcher) ahead of time and he will make sure to have everything you want in stock. He is awesome (and I have NO self-interest in his business!).

          If you get no kickbacks from My Butcher, that is a glowing recommendation! I'd be willing to call in a big order and drive there. I haven't explored Annapolis yet either. Thanks!

            Sadly, My Butcher and More is closed.

        2. The best I have found is Treuth's out in Catonsville--its near HMart so I just combine the two trips into one. I'd love to find one in downtown Baltimore though.

          1. I've had some luck with Ceriello's (sp?) in Belvedere Square. They got me 5 lbs of beef cheeks when I couldn't find them anywhere else in the city.

            But yes, any recommendations for a good carniceria would be appreciated.

              I've been lucky at Ceriello's too. Do ask them for what you want. They keep some of the interesting things in the back. Also, they will order anything for you. If I want something interesting, I'll call a couple of days before I want to go over there.

                Wonder if Ceriello's can order a few pounds of marrow bones??
