The first free-standing family owned butcher shop is coming to Georgetown. Stachowski Brand Charcuterie will be opening at 1425 28th Street where Griffin Market operated until February of this year.

As owner, Jamie Stachowski told The Georgetown Dish,"My son Joseph will be managing it. It's a full-service butcher shop where we'll offer high-end raw cuts, cured, and prepared meats and a small sandwich menu."

"We're delighted to be coming to Georgetown," Jamie explained. "It's where all the action is. We've got a sophisticated product, and Georgetown is the best audience for it." Joseph agrees, "If we're in the middle of Georgetown, we're accessible to everyone."

While there's lots of demolition and reconstruction yet to do, including putting in a new floor, Stachowski said, "We plan to open before the holidays."

Stachowski has been selling sausages in Georgetown at the Rose Park Farmers Market and the Georgetown Farmer's Market.

Recently, Jamie Stachowski was featured in "Meat America," a two-hour documentary on the The History Channel.
