A market that was previously in Fall River and currently in Westport is closing for good.

Gene’s Meat Market announced in a social media post their decision to close.

“We’d first like to thank our loyal customers for the years of patronage and happy memories. It was for you that we woke early and left late to ensure your family meals are joyous ones, or your Thanksgivings are memorable, that each fourth of July has the finest meats to place upon the grill.

“The decision to hang up the aprons was not without complex and quite frankly heavy emotions.

“In this time of economic troubles our situation was complicated by some, not all, but some placing large orders and canceling the day of pick up and leaving us with the loss.

“As you can imagine eating such losses week after week, compounds and it can be very frustrating to deal with.

“We know that our loyal patron will miss having a local butcher who genuinely cares about service and quality, and in a way, we will miss being those people who were there for you day by day but it’s time for us to walk away.

“Thank you again to those who allowed us to briefly follow in our father’s footsteps. This will be our last week open.

“Thank you for the memories and goodbye.”

On the 14th of April 2023, owner Antonio Cordeiro passed away leaving experienced Cordeiro’s twin sons Derek and Tony at the helm.

After closing on Brayton Avenue in Fall River in 2013, Antonio was the reason Gene’s Meat Market returned in 2016, but this time on Route 6 in Westport.

    So sad that profit margins for small business have been devastated by taxes, fees, insurance and the inflation that comes along when our government prints endless money to keep their deficit spending going into eternity. Meanwhile our representitives in local and national office can’t seem to empathize with the people who put them in their positions.
