Let's hear a little bit about their story

"One thing we all know in this day and age is that fresh cut meat markets are very rare and hard to come by. The 19th Street Meat Market previously known as Paynes or A-1 Meat Market is locally owned and operated by Deborah Parton since 2002, who also resides in Parkersburg, WV. The meat market was established in the late 1930's. It is a family run business ran by Debbie's daughter's Mia McDaniel and Amy Nichols with her husband Gary, daughter Cidney and son Alec.

I'm sure we all remember John Payne and his late wife, Jenny who were previous owners of the meat market for over 17 years and hold a lot of history to our community. John still likes to stop in from time to time to check in and make sure we are keeping up on the famous recipes that have made the store what it is today! We have not changed any of the traditional recipes that have become quite popular over the years, such as the "Chunky" or smooth chicken, ham, and cheese salads made daily.

I really love delis. I love ham salads and pimento cheese and prepared mac & cheese - and, of course, fresh meat. Since I was just passing through, I didn't go for any of the fresh meat this time.

But, I did opt for a pepperoni roll and some pimento cheese dip.

I was tempted by the soups, enchiladas, shepherd's pie... everything really!

But my selections were good. The pepperoni wasn't as moist as I would like, but the pimento cheese... made for a perfect complement. Is there anybody making pepperoni rolls WITH pimento cheese? Because if not, they should.
