We recently welcomed Carniceria El Matador to the Chamber with a ribbon cutting! Located at 101 N Depot #B in Santa Maria, the local business has a 24 year history in the community and offers grocery items, fresh meats and bakery items, and lunch and dinner specials.

The Diaz family, who has owned and operated the business thorughout their 24 year history, attributes their success to the support they’ve received from the local community.

“We’re really thankful for how supportive the community has been throughout our 24 years in business here in Santa Maria,” said Carniceria El Matador Owner Jorge Diaz. “They really seem to like the fresh meats that we offer, and our lunch and dinner specials are also very popular.”
