Butcher in Atlanta

gastronomad Mar 29, 2012 06:10 AM

I'm desperately looking for a good butcher in Atlanta. Ideally one that carries more than just beef, chicken, and pork. Really looking for lamb that's from somewhere closer than New Zealand.

Any ideas?

    Have you been to Your Dekalb Farmers Market?

      Sawicki's in downtown Decatur has some good butchering.

      For pork, I would go with Pine Street Market in Avondale Estates.

      I will think of more and let you know as I am currently drawing a blank on anything else, although I do know there are some out there.

        Patak's in Austell... My friends and I make a monthly trip to stock up. I bet around now, they have great lamb, as well. Everything is amazing!

          The Oakhurst Market, also in Decatur but in the Oakhurst neighborhood, has a tremendous butcher.

            Heritage Farms at St Philips on a Saturday at the Peachtree Rd. Farmers Market.. You need to look them up first then contact to place your order then pick it up at the Farmers Market! Goat, Lamb, Duck, Chicken and Pork....pasture raised...other stuff but I dont recall everything. Keep in mind they have to kill n dress then deliver to meat processor then pick up so give plenty of time when ordering.... Eggs are great but sell out in first 10 minutes...beef guy is right next to his stand
