Harry G. Ochs, which in May left its 105-year home at Reading Terminal Market during a tiff over unpaid rent, is a butcher without a block again.

Owner Nick Ochs has left Main Street Market in Manayunk, where he had briefly worked as head butcher at its counter.

"I decided to split," Ochs told me. "It wasn't working for us."

Main Street's Rich Rivera declined to comment.
