For over the 70 years, K & 8th Market has been serving quality meats, poultry, and seafood to the neighborhood of South Boston and beyond. The brother team of Paul and Phil Joseph are third generation butcher and shop owners and just announced they will be selling the beloved market.
“It was a hard decision, we’ve been talking about it for a while. We’re hoping that someone new could take the market to the next level,” said Phil Joseph. The business of K&8th Market is for sale in addition to a residential unit above the shop.
Being a butcher is a physical job and both Paul, 50 and Phil, 52 have been working at K & 8th since they were kids. “We are planning for our future and our family’s future. It’s about timing and now is the time,” added Phil.
Phil, Paul and John Joseph circa 1970.
The business, liquor license, and the building are for sale as a package and will not be sold separately. Realtor Jay Rooney will be selling K & 8th.
“As a Southie native, I always have mixed feelings when helping other Southie natives sell a home or a business that has been ‘in the family’ for generations. But I also understand that South Boston was once farm land and change is inevitable. K & 8th market is a Southie landmark and will hopefully be there for many more years under new ownership,” said Jay Rooney.
