We’ve been steadily working our way through all the meat markets on St Claude Avenue in the Upper 9th Ward of New Orleans. Magnolia Supermarket is by far the best.
There’s always a queue at their butcher counter in the back and with good reason: they’re priced competitively with places like Rouse’s, and the family running the store could not be nicer. Our one complaint is that they only sell ‘family pack’ style; as in you can’t just buy a few hunks of meat. But if you don’t mind buying your meat in bulk this is a good source.
