Belarus SIG #Belarus RE: Molan's live store-separate butcher and poultry #belarus
Michelle Frager mentions separate butcher and poultry shops. As I wastoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
growing up in Buffalo NY in the 1940's in a kosher home, I distinctly
remember mother taking me to "Mr. Brown's butcher shop" for hamburger,
shoulder steak, liver, etc. and to another shop for poultry which I really
remember. When I got a little older I remember going to get "chop meat" at
the butcher's taking a bus by myself. The poultry market was "atmospheric"
as Michelle says and I would often get an asthma attack >from being there. It
definitely had live birds (chicken, duck, even once a goose) she picked live
and then I heard the awful commotion in the back room.
It seems I recall she would buy the fish at more of a deli market or maybe a
large outdoor market. I don't know whether these were separate
establishments for economic/business reasons or religious reasons.
