Does anyone go to Gerorge's Meat market in Raritan(near Somerville)?

I was just curious if any fellow chowhounders go to this meat market. my family has been going for years. They have excellent homemade italian sausage, no fennel and some affordable italian specialty items.

      It is on the main drag. Maybe two blocks in on the right when you turn off 206. Fresh cut meats to order.

        For the record, lol, it is spelled George's. Just noticed my mistype.

    2. George's Meat Market is one of Raritan's old time local butchers who established presences through the various residential neighborhoods in town. Small shop so it's not like going into Wegman's or Whole Foods with their huge range of options but then they don't cater to individual customers like George's. Excellent home made sausages (Italian sweet, hot, fennel options), excellent ground beef and basic steaks. Worth a visit for those items. Another local butcher that is a bit more upscale with a much wider selection of prime grade meats is Hind and Fore Market on Rt 28 just north and west of Raritan by a couple miles. Great selections and very well run shop.....definitely worth a visit.
