R.I.P JIMMY: Ridley Road Market Say’s Goodbye To Meat Connoisseur


The new year started on a massive high, and then I learned some really sad news. Hackney’s finest butcher “Jimmy” who had a shop in East London’s famous “Ridley road market” for over 25 years died on the 3rd January.

Known for his incredibly funny humor and extensive knowledge on meat and Caribbean foods, Jimmy had the entire Caribbean community leaving all corners of the UK, just to purchase he’s fine meats.

Now Jimmy’s meat was not nooooo ordinary meat, he always made sure to give you some good bone with your goat, he always kept he’s meat in a large chiller, he never sold overnight meat and even if you had £4.00 in money, he would still serve you up a good bag of pork, goat or lamb.

Jimmy you will be sadly missed, my thoughts go out to your family at this time.
Update: Although Jimmy has sadly passed, the meat shop continues to supply delicious Caribbean meats and products and can be found at Ridley Road, Hackney, London E8 2LH

Do you have fond memories shopping at Jimmy’s? If so get posting on the comments let us know your thoughts.
