A combination butcher shop and deli is conducting a soft opening this week in Takoma Park, according to an announcement from Main Street Takoma.
Soko Butcher is open at 7306 Carroll Ave. through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; beginning Saturday, Feb. 12 the shop will open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The name is derived from the Swahili word for “market,” which Brown remembers from his Peace Corps days in Tanzania.
The shop offers various cuts of meat, house-made sausages, pastrami, bacon and bone broths; all the meat is sourced from local farms, according to the email announcement.
Customers will also find breakfast sandwiches and bagels, traditional deli sandwiches with Feickert’s twists, and hot sandwiches such as Cubanos, Reubens, burgers and more.
The shop is also taking online orders for pickup and delivery.
