During your time at Marty’s Market, you will be working directly with our Butcher, Steve Beachy whose 15 years of experience as a chef will further prepare you for both food retail and food service environments.
During the course of your 90-day study, you will learn the following skills:
• Whole Animal Butchery: You will be taught butchery in the classic sense of the word, breaking down sides of beef, whole hogs, and whole lambs, often straight from one of our local farm partners. You will also learn poultry butchery including turkey, duck, chicken, and quail.
• Seafood Preparation: Learn to fillet round fish such as salmon and sea bass, prepare flat fish such as halibut and flounder for retail, and properly handle mollusks, shellfish and bivalves.

Create bacon, pancetta, pâtés, terrines, jerky, smoked hams, pastrami, tongue, lardo, torchon, liver mousse, lox and more.
• Sausage-Making: Learn to produce fresh sausages, emulsified sausages such as hot dogs and mortadella, and smoked sausages such as kielbasa, andouille, and linguica.
• Pickling and Fermentation: Make sauerkraut, kim chi, and pickled vegetables.
• Techniques: You will learn proper and safe knife skills including general skills, sharpening, and grip. Other techniques will include identifying animal joints, gland removal, feathering, frenching, and butcher ties.
• Preparation: A great butcher can answer customers’ questions about how to best prepare and cook the cuts they sell. During the course of this internship, you will learn the best cooking methods for our offerings: braising, roasting, grilling, poaching, hot smoking, cold smoking, and more.
