Is Jersey City’s longtime Moloney’s Meat Market closing?

Moloney’s Meat Market, Hudson County’s oldest butcher’s shop, located at 627 Newark Avenue, is a real community staple. Since its construction in 1875, generations of locals have stopped at the market for fresh, high-quality poultry and meat products. The family owned and operated Irish market has been operated by Tom Moloney for decades. Hoboken girl readers have shared their concerns about Moloney’s shutting down or shutting down – here’s what we know.

“Our customers are what kept us in business for four generations,” Founder Tom Moloney said in a statement posted to the website. “We do everything to ensure that our meat market offers the best quality meats, cut and prepared the way our customers like it so they can enjoy a delicious meal. “
