Butcher in the Burbs?

Looking for a butcher for beef in particular. Is there a place that has beef that is superior to Whole Foods? Thank you.

    The Fresh Market on Welsh Road has great meats. They always custom cut for me.

      This post is similar to another recent post. Costco, in King of Prussia has meat in
      it's case that is far superior to Whole Foods, at less than 1/2 the price. They do have
      some limited butchering service as well. They would custom cut a large piece of meat
      to your specs, but it still requires buying a lot of meat, not one or two chops of different

      Try Fredricks Meats in the Quakertown Farmers Market. Great stuff!

        We buy our beef at None Such Farms in Buckingham. They have everything and we regularly get ground beef, steaks, sausage and short rubs. It is all delicious and the animals are raised on site. It's a bit far, so we go about once a month to stock up the freezer.

            I live in Chestnut Hill, but if there is someplace that is just amazing for steaks and prime rib I'm willing to drive. Thank you!

              Carl Venezia on Germantown Pike in Plymouth Meeting is great.
