The butcher case is well-stocked with wonderful holiday meats! No orders nor payments will be taken by phone or online after Saturday, December 18th. We will be serving customers on a first-come first-serve basis, in person at the butcher counter. Please, come see us at the shop! 1600 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley, CA 94709 (our front door is on Cedar).
