East Village Meat Market
139 Second Ave.
at E. 9th St.
A busy butcher shop staffed with old fashioned and skilled butchers. Excellent selection of pork, veal, poultry and smoked sausages, including a big selection of kielbasas.
The meat prices are very good for the same high quality meats you may find for higher prices in butcher shops in other Manhattan and Brooklyn neighborhoods. You can't find a better selection of hot dogs and smoked kielbasas in the city.
What to know:
The shop also has a big selection of pierogies, horseradish mustard, and other Eastern European favorites. If the kielbasas, most of which hang in a case toward the front of the store, are too big, they will sell half-portions.
