The live Halal poultry market next to my favorite produce market. This is in a remote, industrialized part of Brooklyn.  I’m not going in – not even for photos (I doubt they’d let me take any, and I don’t think many people would appreciate the images). As much as I don’t care for this, I do appreciate that I live in a city with so many different cultures.

  1. Halal does mean humane disparch Gisele. I eat meat so accept that it is most likely better for the animals than a regular abbatoir is. You don’t have to watch, but try the meat you may be surprised.

  2. We have a large Muslim population in our area and many halal markets. I don’t believe I’ve ever noticed one which has live animals though. I like your shot and appreciate knowing more about Brooklyn.

  3. Three different languages, including Spanish–which one would not expect from a halal facility–there ani’t no place like NY!

  4. Looks like one of the Hispanic markets around here with all the different kinds of meat they sell. Different ethnic groups make for such interesting neighborhood sights, smells and tastes.

    • You definitely won’t see pork products at a Halal place (even at regular groceries or corner stores in some areas). There are some creative names for restaurants around here like “No Pork on My Fork”. Ironically, the fruit stand is run by Eastern European Jews, who don’t eat or sell pork either. More pork for us, I say 🙂

  5. I have never been to one of these, and I’m with you, don’t think I will ever go inside something like that…but how interesting and so many different varieties of meat!

  6. In this day and age it is easier for us to look at the produce market than the meat market you snapped. Your image helps us remember where the meat we eat comes from! Nice job.

  7. This is one of the reasons why the prices for lamb/sheep are going so high for those of us who raise them…an increase in demand by all the ethnic groups. Funny how pigs are always considered a dirty animal…yes, their poop does have a stronger odor however if given a chance they will choose only one corner of their pen to poop in which is so unlike most animals.
