Meats of Virginia Now Open In Surry On Site Of Former Edward’s Ham Shop

SURRY-A new meat and deli shop is now open in Surry in the space that was formerly the Edwards Ham Shop, which was left vacant after Edwards Virginia Smokehouse announced earlier this year that it was closing after nearly 100 years in business.

Meats of Virginia, located at 11381 Rolfe Highway in Elberon, carries a variety of fresh Virginia meat and seafood products. In addition to seafood, beef, pork, and poultry products, the store also sells exotic meats such as rabbit, alligator, bison, elk, and venison.

Also available at Meats of Virginia are appetizers, cheeses, sandwiches, desserts, and other groceries. Sandwich options include BLT, ruben, pulled pork, and turkey and ham subs. The new business also carries Edwards hams.

Meats of Virginia also has a delivery service. For more information, visit
