A local staple, Fred the Butcher, is expanding and adding a new location in the Capital Region. They are taking over another well-known butcher whose owner retired after forty-six years. Growing up in Mechanicville, Fred the Butcher was part of my hometown. I remember when Fred got in trouble for an anatomically correct bull that he had on the roof of his shop. They are a great family and a great butcher shop. Eventually, they moved to a bigger location in Halfmoon. They have been open since 1979. Now they are adding a second Capital Region location.

According to the TimesUnion.com, Fred the Butcher will be taking over another butcher shop that has been in business for nearly forty-six years. The second location will be in New Scotland. Fred the Butcher will be taking over Falvo's Meat Market where the owner has retired.

The old Falvo's Meat Market is located at 386 Maple Road in Slingerlands. The location is currently being renovated to accommodate Fred the Butcher's second location and they are hoping to open next spring. The second location will be smaller than the Fred the Butcher Halfmoon store. They would carry all of the products that they carry in Halfmoon. Of course, they would have their high-quality fresh meats, an in-house deli, dry-aged beef, produce, seafood, and other products Fred the Butcher is known for.

I am happy that Fred the Butcher is adding a second location so others in the Capital Region can experience the local gem that we have been enjoying for all these years.
