yatke (butcher's stall) (Polish: jatka) – a stall, stand or wooden shed that was originally used to sell food as well as shoemaking, leather and carpentry goods. Later on, these establishments started to focus exclusively on the sale of meat. In the middle ages they remained the property of municipal authorities, leased out to local craftsmen by the guilds; during the 20th century, the name was also used to describe stores which offered meat products for affordable prices.
