EDWINS Butcher Shop

We recently popped over to the east side to visit the newly opened EDWINS Butcher Shop on Buckeye Road, just south of Shaker Square and the flagship restaurant.
They opened their doors in mid-December, offering traditional cuts of raw and cured meats, as well as several house-made items like bratwurst and sausages.
In addition to what you'd find in a traditional butcher shop, you'll also see a selection of dried goods, sauces and other condiments (a few locally made), and a handful of other small surprises in the shop.
Shoppers can also complete their meal preparation from a selection of wines by the bottle, draught beer sold by the crowler or growler, and bottled beer and soda.
But, you can also pop in to enjoy a selection of house-made sandwiches, soups, and other prepared meals. You can dine in, or take it to go. I scooped up a pickle from the GIANT jar on the counter, and it was crisp, juicy, and flavorful.
The butcher shop is part of the EDWINS growing campus, training recently released incarcerated individuals that are looking for a second chance and marketable skills. This is just one more step in the program's expansion plans. The future holds a spice shop and bakery, from what I've read.

Oh, this is really cool. I didn't know they'd expanded like this - but I love their mission & would love to support them by checking it out. Thanks for always sharing such gems!
