“Fresh Local Lunch and Dinner Specials”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

I go here all the time, mostly to get their breakfast sandwich which is made with a local egg so orange in color that it is just gorgeous, on a house made sausage patty plus cheese on a soft roll. Amazing. The atmosphere is hyper hip and clean with friendly staff. There are three different places to sit, at a bar like counter overlooking the butchers cutting meat, at a large farm table in the back dining room or outside on their side patio. I also recommend the chicken liver pate and their Cuban sandwich and any house made pickles they have for sale. They also have 1/2 pd burgers for you burger lovers and great pork ribs. The food is super fresh, all so local they tell you which farm the cucumber came from vs. the tomato. The shop is so cool / fun place to hang out at and get to know whose growing local food by just looking around at their posters and newspaper articles and see all that is going on. On weekends they often have dinners like a Fried Chicken Day or a Sausage Day.

“Its simple”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

There is nowhere else in our region with a fantastic selection of fresh, artisanally butchered, locally raised meats. The fresh meat case is only one feature of The Meat Market- there is also a great little cafe featuring those delicious meats, so you can eat in and then take home whatever you want to cook later- in case you are not sure how to prepare the meat you buy, there is a great staff of helpful and serious cooks. Its wonderful to know where your foods are grown, who the farmer is, and what the animal ate (and did not eat) - its a confidence that one cannot easily find- BUT its even beter when the food is delicious.
