The store-front at 420 Madison Avenue has been a Butcher and Grocer for generations in the heart of Covington. When Charlotte, the owner, was given the opportunity to transform the old Economy Meat Market, she felt this was an adventure that could not be passed up!
The store needed revitalization and a new life. This opportunity would allow her to bring her passion for fun, healthy foods, together with supporting her community and bringing different and unique items to peoples’ tables. Having spent half her childhood on the eclectic West Coast and half in Europe, she developed a wide range of tastes for different foods and cuisines. Her dream was to have a little grocery like she used to visit in Europe as a child. The place everybody knew you and you shopped for a day or two, not for weeks. Food was part of the very fabric of daily life for her and her family growing up, and she grew to appreciate and love this ritual and social connection to her food and community. Charlotte wanted to try and recreate this dynamic way of experiencing food for her community that she so adored growing up.
Anita joined Charlotte in running the store shortly after she took over. She now takes care of all our grinding needs and efficiently runs our Deli and Meat counters. She is also apprenticing from our expert Butcher of 35 years, Terry, who butchers for us early mornings in addition to his day job because of his passion for his art of butchering. Who better to learn from?
