The history of the Hungarian meat market has begun in the 1950’s on the so called “Goulash Avenue”, when Yorkville Meat Emporium & Fairfield Meat Emporium: Manhattan’s Yorkville district was mostly populated by Hungarian immigrants. No introduction was necessary to the smoked sausage, the Easter ham or the Szekely Goulash those times. As Yorkville’s last Hungarian meat market, the market is committed to saving this culture and cuisine as well as familiarizing visitors with them. Besides the usual Hungarian products like Kalocsa paprika, red pepper paste, apricot jam or „beigli” the market also offers specialties of other European countries, such as German or Swiss chocolate, Greek and Bulgarian cheese, Polish preserved fruits and Czech beers.
