McKinnon’s Meat Market in Somerville’s Davis Square Has Been Purchased by Broadway Marketplace in Cambridge


A landmark butcher shop that declared bankruptcy last year and subsequently squelched rumors that it was closing has been sold.

According to a thread within the Davis Square LiveJournal blog, the people behind Broadway Marketplace in Cambridge have purchased McKinnon's Meat Market in Somerville's Davis Square, with a phone call to a manager at Broadway Marketplace confirming this. The person we talked to said that the Elm Street shop will remain McKinnon's, though it was not mentioned what changes will be coming--if any--to the store.

In November of 2015, McKinnon's filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and rumors soon came out that the shop was shutting down; the store responded in its weekly ad that "there is no truth to the rumor that the shop is closing," and it has remained open since the filing.

McKinnon's has been in Somerville since the mid-1960s.

The address for McKinnon's Meat Market is 239 Elm Street in Somerville, while the address for Broadway Marketplace is 468 Broadway in Cambridge. (The website for McKinnon's can be found at
