After being here for about two months now I am finally finding the gems that only locals know about. I stepped up the pace as far as searching since I am always on a quest to find the best quality foods of all nationalities. I have found some lovely butchers that are worth mentioning here on the Eastern shoreline.

Tri Town Foods in East Lyme has a traditional butcher that you can place orders with as well as find some out of the ordinary cuts of meat such as ostrich, game  and oxtail.

Walt’s in Old Saybrook makes his own sausage, beef jerky and pot pies, very yummy! He will order specialty items for you and they carry just about every cut of
meat that you can think of.

Cliff’s in Essex also will carry any cut if you call ahead and they have a smoker in house which creates fabulous smoked meats and cheeses. They also make their own beef jerky as well as delicious soups.
