There was an article about an ld butcher who ran an old fashioned butcher shop I think in some other town,

Does anyone remember this...

If he is still alive I would love to find his shop.

I am looking for a wet cured uncooked ham. Not easy to find.Help! and thanks.

    The Pioneer Press did a story on a butcher who now goes once a week to his old shop on Western, south of Maryland, in St. Paul. I pass that butcher shop now and then, but forgot the name of it. They have a sign out for homemade sauerkraut and for Heggis (??) pizza. That heggis. Some brand name.

    Would that be what you're thinking of?

      That is Stasny's. The older gentleman was in the paper, formerly butchering up in Brooklyn Park I believe.
