Joe's meat market, Providence

i only just ventured into this place recently after hearing it recommended to me many times over the years (i'm a bonehead) and i've been really happy with everything i've gotten. the fresh chorizo sausage i used in paella was delicious, the chicken i've gotten has been tasty & fresh, and the slab bacon i bought today is a steal at 2.29/lb! all the prices are excellent, they carry everything hoof to tail (although i haven't tackled any offal yet) they also carry goat and have some frozen fish. i strongly urge prov foodies to give them a try, and please let me know what you think!

  1. I'll try it out. I've been to Armando & Sons in Pawtucket, which is huge and has a similar selection from what I saw. Have you heard of it?

      yes, i have been by it many times but have never been in. i used to frequent michael's meats in pawt & cumberland when i lived north of the city.

        We typically got to Armando's for beef and chicken. Good prices and quality! A friend complained about the lamb her husband bought there, but for what we want, it works.

    2. Where is this and where does their supply come from (mass produced? local?)?

        not sure but i doubt it's farm to table at those prices. in a perfect world...
        location is westminster st by armory park.

      2. I walked in and walked out of here. The place is filthy and run by people that obviously do not care a lick about the property.
