Dickson's Farmstand is a neighborhood butcher shop in Chelsea Market offering artisanal meats and house-made charcuterie. Our beef, pork, lamb, and poultry are sourced from small, family farms in upstate New York that are carefully handpicked for their humanely-raised, high-quality animals.
When the patriarch of our family, Marcello Raffetto, opened M. Raffetto & Bros. in the heart of Greenwich Village in 1906, it’s hard to imagine he would have expected his little pasta shop to last into the next century. And have it be thriving now more than ever.
My order was OK, but it was delivered in the afternoon as I was about to leave the building where I live. (I had requested delivery in the morning.) The doorman put all of what I ordered in the freezer, although only two of the items required freezing. So I came home to half a pound of frozen hamburger, which I had been planning to eat for dinner. Since it was solidly frozen by then, I had to make other plans. It's still in my freezer.
