Savenor’s- a neighborhood butcher shop tradition
Our mission is to offer the very best in prime meats, game, naturally raised poultry and quality fish from known local sources. We know our farmers and choose only the very best. Our butchers are well trained and offer you the best cuts of meat- Experience the quality to see why we are different.
Savenor’s butchery has been around since 1939 when Ibrahim Savenor came from Lithuania and opened up shop.
Savenor’s Cambridge became a landmark when Julia Child and Jack Savenor struck up a kinship that lasted throughout their lives. Jack Savenor became Julia’s butcher and would source and provide items that Julia needed. She brought Jack on her televised show and history was made. Loyal customers fondly recall times when they would find Julia in the store and would be peeking in her basket to see what she was bringing home.
Some of our customers are celebrities some are neighborhood residents. Come and shop where the Schlesingers, Kennedys, Rockefellers and Julia shopped! All of our customers love good food and we love to provide it!
