Anthony Chernalis learned the butcher trade from his father at a young age in North Haledon, NJ. He took that foundation of knowledge and founded The Market Basket as a specialty butcher shop in Wyckoff, NJ carrying only the best meats available. By following that same philosophy, he grew The Market Basket into a two-location food emporium that is continually ranked the Best Butcher Shop in Bergen County.
Prime meats, grade A poultry and prepared meat items are the foundation of The Market Basket Meat Department. We carry pork and veal products that are grain fed as well as organic chicken and all-natural turkey sourced from Pennsylvania Dutch country.
