We offer everything from “Tongue to Tail.”
Palumbo’s Meat Market is a family owned meat market that sources only the highest quality local steers, hogs and lamb. The experience behind our successful business started in 1927 when Keith’s great grandfather owned the company store after migrating with his wife and children from Italy. Every generation since have been in the meat industry. Keith and Debra opened the doors to the community in 1992 and extended our services to the greater Pittsburgh areas. After five generations our son Jode is running our Sandy Lake Market.
After a devastating fire that claimed the original building in April of 2011, Keith and Debra Palumbo have reopened the newly expanded 6,000 sq/ft meat market. Entering the new market customers experience an old world ambiance, while behind showcases Keith utilizes state of the art equipment to deliver fresh “Grade A” local quality meats. Palumbo’s Meat Market sources from local farmers then completely processes in our two facilities that are USDA inspected and have been awarded a humane handling certificate from the USDA .
Palumbo’s Meat Market offers a wide range of beef, pork, chicken, seafood, cheese, and Italian gourmet goods. Keith is proud to offer local grass fed beef, pork, and lamb. The displays are also stocked with local goods from companies such as McCullough Farms, Habarka Farms, Schwebel's Bread, O'Neill's Coffee and Laubscher Cheese Company.
Keith, a fourth generation butcher, takes pride using traditional methods to prepare the meats. One of their specialties is smoking meat with the use of real hickory chips for optimal flavor. Ham, jerky, beef sticks, sausage, bacon are a few of the smoked meat products. Palumbo’s homemade deli menu includes kielbasa, Italian sausage, blood sausage, four types of hot dogs, and six styles of seasoned bacon.
New to the market are homemade “CHARCUTERIE” meats. Charcuterie is the European art of curing meats for extraordinarily rich flavors. The customers can view the salami, sopressata, pepperoni, and pancetta drying through a large picture window framed with black volcanic tiles.
The family owned business was first established twenty years ago and has the best quality meats and specialty goods necessary for any occasion. It’s worth the drive to West Middlesex or Sandy Lake just for the real smoked beef sticks and jerky!
