Sausage and Sandwich Shop to Fill Griffin Market Space

Jamie Stachowski, locally famous for his sausage and meat products, will open a butcher shop in Georgetown.

Stachowski Brand Charcuterie has become a crowd favorite at the Rose Park Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and will soon find a home inside at owner Jamie Stachowski's new butcher shop in the former Griffin Market space at 1425 28th St.

On his website, Stachowski touts his products as "the only full line all-natural charcuterie business in the Mid- Atlantic region."

According to George Petros, an agent at Papadopoulos Properties, Stachowski will offer the sausages people have come to love from his time at the market, but also sandwiches, charcuterie and more.

"He's doing a really neat meat market," in the space left empty since the beloved in February, according to Petros.

The 10-year lease will officially begin Oct. 1, but the store will not open immediately. Petros explained that the new tenant will have to make largely cosmetic changes like a new coat of paint and some floor repairs before opening.

Stachowski started with the Rose Park Farmer's Market this season and has also been selling sausages at the Georgetown Farmer's Market on Saturdays.

"He has been a great addition to our Market this season. People love to talk to him and they love his sausages even more," said Mary Carroll Platt, one of the Rose Park Farmer's Market organizers.

Stachowski was recently part of "Meat America," a two-hour documentary about meat, from the farm to the butcher shop, on the The History Channel.

You can stop by and meet the new shop owner Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the .

How about a little flexibility on the zoning restriction on seating in the Griffin Market charcuterie/sandwich/coffee shop? That might have helped the former tenants make a go of it. I don't see how a few small tables and chairs would harm the neighborhood. Much better to have that than an expanded 7-eleven. We really ned a good coffee shop.
