Meats in NoVA

I'm interested in hearing from other Northern Virginia Eggheads - where do you buy your meats?

I get my pork shoulders at the "H" Mart stores, but it can be hit and miss sometimes, although Wednesday I got the meat guy in Fairfax to fix me up with a nice 12 pound shoulder piece that he cut from a giant 25 pound hunk of meat (he thought I wanted the whole thing). Normally it's easy to find 8-9 pounders in the meat case at the Merrifield store. I buy all of my whole chickens and beef at Costco along with their salmon, and I buy other fresh fish at "H" Mart (mostly bluefish, which is great on the Egg).

Where do my NoVA neighbors buy their meats?



  • I buy my butts, ribs, and chicken from Whole Foods. The quallity of the pork is really a step above what the big pig factories can produce. For brisket, Costco has good flats.
    For a real treat for beef of any sort go to Union Meats at the Eastern Market in d.c.

  • Thanks Brett! I'll give Whole Foods a try. Do they stock the large pork cuts or do you have to order them?
