Old Time Butcher Shop brings back a old tradition to Bay Roberts and Area


 

There’s something special about walking into a small butcher shop and asking for a special cut of meet, the opportunity to get to know the actual owner and of course to support a local entrepreneur. For years Bay Roberts (Coley’s Point) had one , Mercers Meat Market was a fixture in the community, your “go to” place for excellent cuts of meat. Mercer’s has long since closed and although there are supermarkets in town that offer wonderful product I felt there was a void , until now. Old Time Butcher Shop is now open and cutting delicious cuts of steak, making amazing pork sausage and white puddings and plenty more!!

I had a opportunity to visit this weekend and discovered many of their culinary treasures.

Oh did I mention they have amazing local eggs? Produce? Seafood?

The white puddings were wicked, the flavor was deep but I needed to poke some holes in them as some of the casings burst.

Of course steak cuts are huge at a butcher shop and they did not disappoint the steaks are cut to order and the quality is second to none. I know a thing or two about BBQ and I have to saw the beef was flavorful and tender.

  1. Ron. In addition to Mercers there was French’s meat market where ReMax is now, as well as Badcock’s and Earle’;s in Shearstow, Also Hierlihy’s on Water Street.

  3. As a child going to “Mercer’s Meat” as we called it was a treat. I will always remember the smell when you walked in – which I attributed to their delightful white pudding, the sound of your feet on the floor and the brown wrapping paper they used. As a child it was magical how they would take the meat and place it on the paper and wrap it with such ease and perfection wrought by years of being the main meat store in town and then pull that string that hung on the wall and tie the knot. The sound of the meat wrapped in the brown paper as it slid across the counter to the customer will always remain in my mind.

    Such great memories of that place and the best white puddings ever!

  4. We’ve shopped there many times. Best place to get a prime rib. Always so fresh and the perfect thickness you want. Loves it.
