Are there such things as greengrocers, butcher shops and fish shops in the States?

I mean dedicated shops that sell only fruit and veg or meat or fish. I don't mean artisan or religious (e.g. halal butcher) specialty shops either - just general neighbourhood shops.

        There are those who might argue that point...but I'm not one of them :)

          California is it's own separate little world. End.of.story.

        2. Massachusetts and New York too.

          1. Yes, I've lived in 3 states (California, Illinois, and Colorado) and all have dedicated shops. I think the hardest to find is dedicated seafood, but they do exist, especially in coastal states.

            1. butcher shops and fish shops in Florida, and produce can be bought from roadside stands
