Ernest and Son Meat Market is an old-fashioned butcher shop in Brigantine, New Jersey that was founded by Ernest Storino and his son, Sam, in 1977. Brigantine native Mel Cortellessa was hired in 1985 at the age of 13 as a cleanup kid and shelf stocker. He fell in love with the business, learned the trade and bought the business from Sam in 2007.
Today, our staff strives to keep the same traditions alive that we practiced 40 years ago. Ernest and Son Meat Market provides the area with fairly priced, quality meats. Stop by to see this piece of history for yourself.
Although we like to stick to traditions, we know the importance of diversifying our business. That’s why we offer event catering and famous sandwiches. Our fare has even been featured on the Food Network’s hit show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
