Changing market: In 1989, when 9th Street Meat Market opened in Texas City, consumers still valued traditional shops and the customer service for which small, family owned businesses are known. But it’s a world of online shopping, curbside service and home delivery even for food and groceries and last week 9th Street Meat Market, 1031 Ninth St. N, was preparing to close.

“It is with tremendous sadness that we must announce the closing of 9th Street Meat Market,” the Dwayne Herman family said in a letter to customers. “Unfortunately, we are no longer able to compete with the current trends in our community.”

The Ninth St. Meat market will be missed. Much of what they sell isn't available anywhere else. It is like an old fashioned butcher shop where they cut what you want, the way you want it cut. Try getting that at Kroger or HEB.
