Reminds me of old time butcher shop. Great meats, great service. Haven't been in since they've added seating. Great place to pop in while in town.

This is the only non-farm place that I know that sells real pasture-raised chicken. "Free-range" has come to mean "able to walk a few feet." The pasture-raised chickens at Thistle are real, free-roaming, not additive, no antibiotics (ever) birds. They look a little skinny, and well, they are. Unlike Mary's, FF, and the other commercial brands, there are no huge patches of 9 Kcal/gram bright yellow fat on these chickens. I didn't have to remove any fat and the bird was tender and tasty. They are not cheap ($10/lb) but your health is worth it.

We were stopped at the traffic light right in front of the store! The first thing you notice is the pig statue on the sidewalk!
Excellent staff. Did not feel rushed and answered all our questions. IF you like Pate´ ..you'll love this place. Other fresh, local farm meats..rabbit, pork & burger. The do sandwiches...call ahead to see the daily menu. They also have local suppliers of cheese, Cowgirl creamery, jams & crackers. If you call ahead you can order an appetizer for 2 or 20! Definitely recommend.
