Dickson’s Farmstand Meats is Chelsea Market’s premier butcher shop
Dickson’s Farmstand Meats is a nose-to-tail butcher shop. The narrow space is lined with a case on one side, filled with everything from marbled merguez sausage to pig’s-face roulade and pancetta. As you make your selections, don’t hesitate to ask the knowledgeable butchers to chop your steak into strips, or query about appropriate cooking times. Luckily, the whole place smells of smoked meat, and rotisserie chickens, speared on spits, spin in the oven. Grab a sandwich, like house-made hotdogs nestled in plush buns, or hunks of blackened pastrami jammed with cheddar, apricot chutney and mustard on multi-grain bread, for lunch on your way out.
