Harlem Shambles is a family owned specialty butcher shop in the Harlem neighborhood of NYC. The Forrester brothers work directly with New York farms to source meat that is raised locally. Each cut in the shop is labeled with the farm and town it was raised in.  Harlem Shambles operate with a ‘whole animal philosophy’ which means they create minimal waste by butchering every part of the animal they can. You can also find interesting cuts here that your run of the mill grocer won’t have. Stop by the shop and you’ll also find a plethora of other locally grown and made items like grains, eggs, bread and more.
