Soko to Hold Grand Opening Sunday

Soko, a new combination butcher shop and deli, will hold its grand opening this Sunday in Takoma Park, according to an announcement from Main Street Takoma.

“Join new Takoma business, Soko, this Sunday, February 20th from 12 noon – 4:00 pm to celebrate its opening in Takoma Park with an outdoor party in the parking lot next to the TPSS Co-op,” reads the announcement. “Chef will be at the grill smoking brisket plus beer and cider available from pop up by Takoma Beverage Company. Music by The Leftovers.”

Soko, which soft-opened last week, is owned by Brad Feickert, a trained chef who has worked at Volt and Oz restaurants, and Chris Brown, owner of Takoma Beverage Co. and Zinnia Restaurant.

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 Main Street Takoma.

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.

Soko, located at 7306 Carroll Ave. in Takoma Park, is open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day and is also taking online orders for pickup and delivery.
