As we make our lists and hunt down the perfect gifts for friends and family, I’m reminded how much fun DIY kits are and how easily they can turn everyday people into food heroes. Take the Jerky Crafting Kit from Fleisher’s Craft Butchery, the sustainable, whole-animal butcher shop with locations in Westport and Greenwich.
Fleisher’s Craft Butchery (formerly Saugatuck Craft Butchery) has opened their second retail location in Fairfield County at 160 E. Putnam Avenue in Cos Cob, filling the space vacated by Radio Shack. With Greenwich Cheese Company and Fjord Fisheries as neighbors, the three make a tidy trio of food mongers in what they’re calling The Hub.
Fleishers Craft Butchery is opening their doors on Saturday, May 9, from 3 until 6 pm to celebrate and converse about the future of the newly merged company and what it means for the community. CEO Ryan Fibiger, Head Butcher Paul Nessel, and COO Sam Garwin will be there to meet and greet and answer any questions you might have.
