Deli cases are usually packed with meats laden with preservatives. That’s not the case at Hickman’s Meat Market. Owner Bill Hickman has banned mystery meat, opting to make homemade, preservative-free lines of pork and beef products. “We are becoming more and more natural every day,” says Hickman. The shop’s poultry comes from The Farm in Georgetown, the first certified organic farm in Delaware. The family makes its own lunchmeats, too, including preservative- and additive-free roast beef, roast pork, smoked ham, roast chicken and roast turkey. “The acceptance has been unbelievable,” says Hickman.
