Today, I had the day off from work. With sleeping in, ’cause that is what you do on days-off, I managed getting out of the house late-morning for a bite at The Sandwich Shop and a trim at Dan Cercone. I was on my way home when I noticed a new storefront on Liberty; Bloomfield now has a butcher — DJ’s Butcher Block.
He’s been open since last Thursday, so his scale is small at this point, but that is good. He seems committed to providing affordable, fresh, local, and quality meats (plus other products – especially if you ask); if he sticks to that commitment, time and community support will hopefully sustain larger scale and increased variety.
For now, yay! I got some Ohio Eggs (yes Ohio), Apple Cider pressed in Wexford, some Buffalo Chicken Sausage, and some freshly ground beef.
