After seven years on Williamson Street, Underground Butcher is closing.

According to an Instagram post, the business’ last day will be Dec. 15. While the storefront itself is closing, Underground Meats will be available from other local businesses, including The Heights, which is also owned by the Underground Food Collective.

“It has been a joy to be a part of the Marquette neighborhood over the past 7 years,” the post says. “Huge thanks to the amazing staff at Underground Butcher, they have been the heart of the shop and so wonderful to work with.”

Thanks, Madison, for a great 7 years! The Underground Butcher will close up shop on December 15th, 2019. But don’t worry! You can still buy your @undergroundmeats (dry cured salami) from many other local businesses, including @theheightskitchen , @willystreetcoop (all three locations), @fromagination , @metcalfesmarket , and many others. It has been a joy to be a part of the Marquette neighborhood over the past 7 years. Huge thanks to the amazing staff at Underground Butcher, they have been the heart of the shop and so wonderful to work with. We want to especially recognize Michael Signorelli, Dietrich Gosser, Joslyn Mink, Sophia Phillips, and Steve Dawson — thanks for everything through the years!
