CRITICS, UPSTATE | Haldas Market
2201 Silverside Road, Wilmington, 475-7600
Many a summer barbecue begins at Haldas Market, the near-century-old family business that’s equal parts full-service butcher, deli and caterer. From hormone-free bone-in ribeye and fresh-made kielbasa to Bell & Evans chicken and pre-marinated pork chops, Haldas has all the right stuff. Grab some imported Di Bruno Bros. cheese before you leave.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Hickman’s Meat Market
18385 Coastal Hwy., Lewes, 645-0600
4307 Highway One, Rehoboth Beach, 226-8345
Deli cases are usually packed with meats laden with preservatives. That’s not the case at Hickman’s. Owner Bill Hickman stocks homemade, preservative-free lines of pork and beef products. 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 smoked ham, roast chicken and roast turkey. “We are becoming more and more natural every day,” says Hickman.
