About Us

Dole & Bailey is proud to be your independently-owned-and-operated butcher.

Since 1868, Dole & Bailey has been known throughout the Northeast as the premiere source for meats, seafood, and gourmet items for the finest restaurants, resorts, and universities. Starting humbly at a stall in Boston's famous Faneuil Hall, Dole & Bailey is now in its 150th year and is owned-and-operated by Nancy Matheson-Burns in Woburn, MA. In 2020 we opened our Home Delivery Online Shop, allowing shoppers to cook with the same high-quality products they get at their favorite restaurants throughout New England.
